With Payments by Planet, you can easily and securely process payments, manage customer data, and get insights into your business performance – all from our property management software.

How to choose the right payment gateway integration?

A payment gateway integration allows the secure transfer of funds between your guests and you. When your guest enters their payment details, such as their credit card information, the payment software encrypts this sensitive data. The gateway authorizes the payment to ensure the transaction is secure, fast and efficient. It can also process payments in over 100 currencies, making it easier for you to collect payments from your customers around the world and create a more transparent experience.

Choosing the right payment gateway integration can bring many benefits to your company, including increased security, improved customer experience, reduced fraud and even extra revenue streams.

Payments by Planet is directly integrated with our Property Management Software, and Vacation Rental Channel Manager providing you and your guests a secure and seamless experience. Our all-in-one payment platform guarantees secure transactions, integrated automation services with your business model, transparent transactions to improve guest experience, multi-gateway connections and an extra revenue stream through shared exchange rate commissions.

But that’s not all – our payment gateway integration accepts all card types, lowering the chance of abandoned payments and giving your guests even more flexibility. Additionally, guests can choose alternative payment options, such as mobile payments. With an annual growth rate of 23.8% projected for the mobile payment market between 2021-26, accommodating alternative payment methods is crucial for delivering a positive booking experience through your website.

This is a revenue stream opportunity where you share the exchange rate commission with the gateway.
