How to Take Payments with the RaccoonPay Card Machine

Modified on Wed, 29 May 2024 at 11:44 AM

You have two different ways of taking payments with the RaccoonPay Card Machine: from within the reservation or from the RaccoonPay Dashboard. Each method has its own considerations and steps.


How to initiate a Payment from Within the Reservation?

  1. In the reservation, navigate to the bottom right of the screen. Open the Card Machine tab in the payments section.
  2. Insert the amount you wish to charge and click on the green button CHARGE VIA CARD MACHINE.
  3. The indicated amount will appear on the card machine. The guest can then proceed to pay using their desired payment method.
  4. The payment will be reflected in the reservation and in the RaccoonPay Dashboard within a few moments.


How to initiate a Payment from the RaccoonPay Dashboard

  1. Go to the Payments module and stay on the RaccoonPay tab.
  2. On the left side of your screen, enter the amount you wish to charge in the Card machine payment section and click on the green button to initiate the charge.
  3. The indicated amount will appear on the card machine. The guest can then proceed to pay using their desired payment method.


Note: Payments initiated from the RaccoonPay Dashboard are not linked to any reservation, thus they will only be displayed in the RaccoonPay Dashboard, and you cannot issue an invoice for these payments.
