2. Send Paylinks to your guest bookings for them to pay wherever they are in the world. Paylinks are emailed invoices with a request to pay by card, its an invoice detailing all the costs of their stay, plus any requested extras (e.g. breakfast) and they will be able to view it on an email, and then go to a secure webpage to pay it off wherever they are on their mobile device or PC. You’ll be notified as soon as they have paid.

3. Accept any major foreign cards. (Non-EU debit/credit cards are subject to an extra 1.5% per transaction card fee)

Also you can go paperless, get 0% per transaction on your card fees (just tap Add Card Fee and tap 100% to roll the 2.65% and 20p on the customer receipt), and organise your Jobs or Sales all in the SmartTrade App.
