What are auto charges? Auto Guest Payments feature is a product created by Hostaway that allows clients to automate guest charges through our Guest Invoicing module. Hostaway customers can set up a number of charges per reservation. These charges will be triggered by events such as Reservation, Check-in, and Check-out.
What auto charges feature does:
- creates charges for any new reservation
- has the ability to split a reservation payment in different charges to be triggered at one of the following schedule triggers: Reservation, Check-in, and Check-out. For HomeAway/VRBO the split charges are reflected in the channel. More information can be seen at How to set up Guest Invoicing with an Auto-Charge?
- has the ability to pause a charge at any time. If the pause charge is "unpaused", it will be charged immediately
- has the ability to edit a charge at any time. Any modification will only affect NEW reservations.
This feature is available to all our clients with a Stripe or Braintree account. Please let us know if you want to start using this feature: firstname.lastname@example.org.
