Taking Payments: PS2 SCA compliance
Bookster Property Management System is now ready for the new PS2 Strong Customer Authentication (SCA) that is on the way from 14th September 2019.
We have completely rewritten how Bookster takes payments from our partner Payment Gateways. This includes the update with Stripe and also updated the way we take payments from Sagepay and Worldpay to be ready for the new SCA requirements.
Although the compliance deadline in the UK has been pushed back 18 months from 14th September, compliance will still be needed to accept payments from other European areas.
This provides extra security to property managers who are taking payments and damage deposits for holiday rentals.
TripAdvisor Channel Manager
We are now looking for Beta Testers for our direct (API) channel manager integration with TripAdvisor!
If you have 15 or more properties that are either already on TripAdvisor or you would like to get on to TripAdvisor, let us know.
The Bookster <-> TripAdvisor connection will sync:
- Property details
This latest direct integration is just one of the great marketing channels that we offer through the Bookster Channel Manager.
Can now allow any Check-in window and Check-out time to be specified in Bookster.
Select Check-in to be between 00:00 and 00:00 to be marked as 24h check-in when property details are synced across to Booking.com via the Channel Manager.
Minor updates and bug fixes
- Performance Boost: Speed up the process of creating a booking in Bookster Holiday Lettings Management Software.
