Supporting payment cards

When creating a reservation, it is possible to attach a payment card to the reservation. As part of creating your own custom booking engine, you may want to have a form within your application where customers can enter their payment card data and send this data to the Booking Engine API for further use. Payment card data can then be used by Mews for charging the customer. To do that, some Booking Engine API operations support or require Credit card data in the request.

Where to get CreditCardData values

  • Confirm that the hotel or property supports PCI Proxy by checking the field Payment card storage type in the configuration data returned from Get hotels. Also refer to the Payment gateway documentation to see what other API data you could potentially use for your implementation.

  • Follow the PCI Proxy Secure Fields guide to handle the sensitive card data and obtain PaymentGatewayData. Use PublicKey as the merchantId while implementing PCI Proxy fields.
