Use PayPal to Receive Payments from Guests and also Accept Credit Cards

For all bookings, receive payments via PayPal and also receive credit card payments

You are often confronted with the challenge of receiving your customers’ payments? Transfers are long or impractical with foreign guests. The manual recording of credit card data is complex and is often not desired by guests. So why not simply work with an internationally represented and well-accepted payment service provider. It does not matter if the booking came via, Airbnb, Expedia or as direct booking via e-mail.

Who or what is PayPal?

Have you never worked with PayPal? With PayPal, everyone can register in a few steps, whether as a private customer or business customer. You can then send and receive payments via a secure connection. The best part: PayPal can not only process PayPal payments, which you can then transfer to your account. PayPal allows your guests to send credit card payments. You have to refund money? This is also possible with a few mouse clicks.

How does PayPal work with Smoobu?

Within Smoobu, you can automatically create payment links with the amounts from your bookings (whether total payment, final price or remaining amount) and then send them automatically (or optionally by manual triggering) to your guests. With two clicks the guest pays and you have the money immediately in your account. It’s that easy.

Does the use of PayPal cost me an additional commission?

No, with Smoobu, there are no extra commissions. You pay only the usual fees directly to PayPal.
