How can I take a payment in a booking?

If a client selects a payment method online that isn't a card payment (e.g. bank transfer, cheque etc.) The option chosen will filter through into a booking and show which method was selected in the Payment method drop down. This helps you to know whether to check your bank account for a transfer, or expect a cheque in the post. 

If a guest selects a card type then the type chosen will display here instead. 

If the guest selected a card type, but the transaction failed, it would just stay as "Select" from the drop down, and the booking will still show as an unpaid booking.

How to navigate to the payments section of a booking

1. First you need to navigate to the booking.

2. If you know the booking number, click on the Search button on the top right of the SuperControl pages and enter your booking number. 

You can also go to Bookings > Grid view. Once you load your grid you can click on the booking to take you into the main area for that booking OR you can go to Bookings > Search bookings and use the filter options to find your booking.

3. Once you’re in the booking, scroll down and the Customer Payments tab will be selected by default.

4. To mark a payment as paid, either tick the deposit or balance tick boxes (depending on what has been paid by the guest). Select a payment method then ‘Save’. To process a payment using a payment processor (Sage Pay, Secure Trading, HolidayRentPayment) click here.

5. To mark a payment which is different from the main deposit and balance amounts as paid, you can enter this within the ‘Enter Custom Payment’ area. Enter a caption, date, payment method, amount and click ‘Save’.

How to Record a Payment or Refund made by Bank Transfer, Cheque or through an External Card Machine?

If you took payment for a booking via Bank transfer, Cash, Cheque or an External Card Machine, and need to record the refund of that payment,  in part or in full within the booking, please follow the steps below. 

You can also use these instructions if you need to record in a new booking a payment made on a previous booking (by BACS, Card etc.)

1. Navigate to the booking in question, and go to the 'Customer Payments' section at the bottom. Using the grey 'Custom payments' bar, fill in the type of refund you are recording to the left, the method by which the refund was issued (i.e. Bank Transfer), and then set the right hand box to 'Refund' or 'Payment' as required.


2. If a Refund, a box will appear to ask what sort of refund you are recording. Select the option that applies and then 'Proceed'.


3. Press the green 'Save' button to the right of the Customer Payments area. This will then record the refund or payment in the booking. If a refund, you would of course have to actually refund the guest their money directly within your online banking, or by sending a cheque by post.
