You will need to set these rules once and AmenitizPay takes care of the rest.
To automate your authorisations, go to AmenitizPay > Settings. Authorisations can be automated for each of your sales terms: so you can edit the authorisations for each sales terms, in euros or in % of the amount of the reservation:
The authorisation gives you the possibility to check the validity of a credit card but also the solvency of your customer, without having debited the account.
You can debit with the amount you wish if necessary (e.g.: breakage,...)
Authorisations cannot be managed for reservations with virtual credit cards.
If you set up a pre-authorisation and select multiple payment methods in the booking engine > sales terms, the authorisation will be automated only if the guest selects payment by credit card.
The funds will be “held” for 7 days, on the day of arrival at 2am.
