I am currently building an accommodation booking application for a client of mine and I'm have a question regarding the payments processing end of the application. In the case of many of the major players in the accommodation market, once a room is booked they are able to transfer the credit card details to the accommodation provider concerned. i.e. if a Hotel room is booked, a notification is sent to the accommodation provider, where they can log into a secure location in order to view the payment details. Accommodation providers such as hotels will not hold a room unless they have a valid credit card.
Is this type of system the reserve of major accommodation giants such as Expedia or can a similar system be established for my clients.
Thanks in advance,
The process of transferring payment details is not something that Authorize.Net can facilitate and is something with legal restrictions that are really best discussed with your business banker or merchant account provider.
