There are three options for taking payments through Inn Style.

Each method has its pros and cons, depending on your type of business. Here's a brief explanation of each one so you can decide what works best for you.

Stripe

Stripe is great if you:

  • don’t currently have a way of collecting payments
  • want to get rid of your merchant terminal
  • want to avoid paying a fixed monthly sum
  • want to avoid entering a minimum contract period
  • want an easy way to be PCI compliant

What's possible with Stripe?

  • Charging guests that book online
  • Charging guests in your admin area
  • Re-charging cards used to pay a deposit
  • Sending payment requests to guests
  • Synchronising card details with Booking.com
  • Storing card details for later use

How much does Stripe cost?

  • There’s no upfront cost or monthly sum
  • You’ll pay 1.4% + 20p on European debit and credit cards*
  • You’ll pay 2.9% + 20p on non-European debit and credit cards*
  • These sums will be deducted by Stripe before they pay money into your account

*Transaction fees vary depending on the country you sign up from. For detailed rate information, please see Stripe's website.
