Decrypt Guest Credit Card
Hostaway cannot store guest credit card data and therefore the liability of storing such personal data falls into you as the client. In order to provide access to viewing guest card data, you will need to sign our Service Contract & Confidentiality agreement. Please send an email to email@example.com to request this agreement.
You will then receive the agreement which needs to be signed and sent back. Once this has been verified, the activation of this feature will be done ONLY under the client account that has requested this feature.
Important: Please note that ONLY reservations received AFTER the Secret Key has been downloaded will have the option to decrypt credit card details.
Credit card details for reservations made before the moment you downloaded the Secret Key will not be eligible for the reveal credit card option
How to view card information

3. Once the key file is downloaded, you must go to Reservations module, select specific Reservation > Edit > Payments* and click on "Reveal credit card".
3. Another pop up will ask you to drag and drop the key file and after that just click on "Show credit card data" which will show the full card number, name, expiry date and CVC number.
