What payment processor should I choose?

Each of the following payment processors offer the highest level of integration meaning you can take payments and do refunds via a booking within SuperControl. The benefits and downsides of each one are shown below to help you make an informed decision.

Sage Pay

Firstly you need to apply for an e-commerce merchant account with your bank to authorise you to take online payments. Once you have this, you can then sign-up with Sage Pay. This integration allows you to take credit and debit cards. Also, you can hold money on the guest’s card for a security deposit so you don’t have to take the money and then refund it back. You’re able to hold it and then release it once their stay is over (or take a payment if they leave any damages). Sage Pay charges apply.

Simple sign up process Yes. Sign up here.
Separate merchant account required Yes
Process payments/refunds within a booking  Yes
Guests can complete payments via SuperControl online booking form Yes
Hold money on a guests card for a damage/security deposit Yes
Monthly/Additional charges Yes
HolidayRentPayment

The selling point with HolidayRentPayment is that there is no monthly fee and you don’t need an e-commerce merchant account. You have to fill out one short form within your SuperControl account, and provided the application is successful, then you’re ready to start taking online payments within the next few days. The only downside to HolidayRentPayment is that they charge a transaction fee on all payments (whether they are debit or credits cards). The charge cost is 2.29% and this also applies the charge if the guest is paying by debit card as well.

Simple sign up process Yes. Sign up in SuperControl (Integrations > Online payments gateways > Holiday Rent Payment > Application Form).
Separate merchant account required No
Process payments/refunds within a booking  Yes
Guests can complete payments via SuperControl online booking form Yes

Secure Trading

Firstly you need to apply for an e-commerce merchant account with your bank to authorise you to take online payments. Once you have this, you can then sign-up with Secure Trading. This integration allows you to take credit and debit cards. This integration does not have the function to hold money on a guests card for a security deposit, you would need to take the money and then refund it back. Secure Trading charges apply.
