Credit Card Center

Now you can perform all credit card operations from one centralised location, where you can verify credit card, charge the card, authorize, capture, extend/repeat the sale, refund and perform many more operations in bulk with less affords. Note: You can access this center only if you have configured either Secure Trading PMS or EzyWay PMS Payment Gateway in eZee Absolute Configuration -> Settings -> General -> Display Setting page as well as needful credentials in eZee Absolute Configuration -> Settings -> Other -> Payment Gateway Settings page.

eZee Absolute Front Office:
You can access this center from Cashiering menu. Please see the below screenshot:

You can see the reserved booking as well as an in-house booking on the list which is unsettled and valid for any kind of credit card-related operations. Please see the below screenshot:

You can also search checked-out, canceled, and no-showed bookings by selecting this status in booking status filter. You can also search for the booking of different dates like booking date, arrival date, and departure date. You can quickly search for any bookings by Guest, Res#, Vouc#, Room Type, Room, Folio No, Bill No, Last 4 Digits of CC No., Group code too.
From the booking list, you can filter the booking through verified and unverified credit cards too. You can verify the credit card on each individual booking and well as in bulk on the multiple bookings as well. It allows you to collect payment from the guest by eCollect payment feature. Also, you’ll be able to track all the operations regarding credit cards performed from this screen by Audit trail option. Please see the below screenshot:

This is all about the general operations. Now, we will show you how you can charge the card, authorize the amount, capture, and many more operations too. Please see the below screenshot:

Here you can see the screen which will be opened by clicking the “Process” button. This screen will show you 3 tabs: Credit cards, Authorized and Payments.
1. Credit Cards:
In this tab, you can see folio list of selected booking having credit card details exist. With the credit card details, you can directly charge the card, authorize the amount and store the card details for future purpose. For each operation, the system provides you the flexibility to perform operations with percentage and fixed amount.
Card Charge:
You can perform it on a percentage of the balance due, either fully by 100% and partially by any % as well as with fixed amount too.
Same as for card charge, but on the authorized limit amount. Let’s say folio’s due amount is 500$ and previously you had authorized 100$. That means 400$ is still valid for authorization. You can proceed with the operation by a percentage of this auth limit for an authorization operation.
Store Card:
Same as authorization.

If you click on card charge, the system will ask the amount selection. Please see the below screenshot:

Now, we will see the looks and purpose of an authorized tab. Please see the below screenshot:

2. Authorized :
In this tab, you can see all performed authorization, stored card, captured authorization, and voided authorization. By default, you can see only the authorization and store card only. By status filter, you can see others too. Here you can perform Capture and Auth reversal operation.
You can fully capture the authorized amount or partial also by the percentage and fixed amount option same as seen above.
Auth Reversal:
You can void the authorized this will helps you to release the unwanted authorization.

Now, we will see the looks and purpose of payment tab. Please see the below screenshot:

3. Payments:
In this tab, you can see all payments like direct card charge payments, captured payments, refunded payments, extended or repeated payments as well as voided payments too. By the default, you can see all these payments except the voided one. However, by the status filter, you can see voided payments too. Here you can perform a refund, extend/repeat sale and void operation on any payments. On the other hand, you can’t perform refund on the refunded payment itself. Also, please keep this point in your mind that all operation will be performed on paid amount only either in percentage or with fixed.

eZee Rise (New Extranet):
You can access this credit card center from eZee’s distribution extranet as well. Please see the below screenshot:

If PMS is not enrolled, then the system will allow you to configure payment gateways for the Credit Card Center in the setting page.

City Ledger Credit Limit

Now you can set credit limit on city ledger account. This limit will help you control the City Ledger Transfer beyond the credit limit. For this, you have to assign privilege “Allow to post Cityledger transfer over Credit Limit” to your front office users. With this, a user who has this privilege, that particular user will be able to perform the Cityledger Transfer beyond the defined credit limit on that city ledger account. The system will not allow City Ledger Transfer to the user if he/she doesn’t have this privilege.

Let’s see all this in more detail. For this, we will have to set the credit limit on city ledger account as the first step. When we are talking about city ledger, we have to consider room owner, travel agent, and company accounts in the city ledger.

Let’s see how you can set the limit.

eZee Absolute Configuration:

The system will allow you to set a credit limit on a room owner account from Rooms -> Room Owner module. Please see the below screenshot to set a credit limit for any existing room owner – “Edit Room Owner” window:

You can set the credit limit for a new room owner as well in a similar way.

eZee Absolute Front Office:

The system will allow you to set a credit limit on the travel agent as well as on company account in the same way as that of a room owner.

Let’s see for a travel agent. From  Cashiering -> Travel Agent Database. Please see below screenshot to set the credit limit for an existing travel agent:

Also, you can set the credit limit for a new travel agent in the same way. Now let’s see for the company. From Cashiering -> Company Database. Please see below screenshot to set a credit limit for the existing company:

You can set the credit limit for a new company as well. Now we will see how this credit will help you manage the city ledger exchange. We will take the example of a company We have set a £15000 credit limit as shown in the above screenshot. Let’s check the balance of this company. For that, we will refer to the Cashiering Center screen. Please see below screenshot:

Balance is £7000. Now we’ll try to do city ledger exchange of £10000 on one booking from Edit Transaction -> Folio Detail tab. We’re trying to perform city ledger exchange over its credit limit by £2000 (£7000 is a current balance, adding £10000 will make it £17000. Credit limit is £15000). Please see below screenshot:

Here, the user has “Allow to post Cityledger transfer over Credit Limit” privilege, that’s why the system is confirming with a user before posting. If he/she will click on OK, the system will perform the city ledger exchange. If you click on Cancel, the system will not move ahead to perform the further process.

Now let’s see what system will do if the user does not have this privilege to post city ledger transfer over the credit limit.

Please see the screenshot below where a user is trying to perform this operation but the access has been denied.

This is all about how this feature will work. In a similar way, all of this will be managed from the dashboard, edit group for group payment and from POS (Incidental Invoice) while performing the city ledger exchange.

Activate Past Cancel & No-Show Bookings in eZee Absolute

Till now, it was unable to reactivate past canceled and no show bookings. You were able to undo cancel and no show for current and future transactions but once night audit is performed and booking is passed, it was impossible to reactivate it.

However, with this enhancement, a user can activate past cancel and no show bookings. This can be useful especially in the case when the cancel and no show is performed by mistake. With this feature, you’ll be able to activate existing transaction with new stay dates, new room type, and room.

You can activate from the reservation list and quick search. Find the screenshot for a reference.

When you click on activate booking, it will ask you to select the stay information.


And once you activate, your booking will be activated and you can find the information in the audit trail.


Group Payment Distribution From Walk-in And Insert Transaction

Now, you can distribute the payment in a group booking among each room from walk-in and insert transaction screen. Previously, when we were posting payment on the group owner, no distribution provision was there. Due to that, the front office manager has to invest efforts to distribute the posted amount among each room of a group which was taking a great deal of time in amount settlement. To overcome this problem, now the system will allow the payment distribution while taking a booking with fewer efforts and simple way.

Let’s see how?

eZee Absolute Configuration:
We have provided display settings page for the group payment posting mode, having two options viz. Group Owner and room distribution. To satisfy the current scenarios as well with the distribution provision, we have provided Group Owner option along with the room distribution option. Group Owner will post the payment on the owner of the group. As per our old working flow, room distribution will distribute the payment among each room of group booking. This will distribute the payment by balance or proportional based on the payment amount. If the guest is paying fully then by balance otherwise proportional. Please see the below screenshot:

eZee Absolute Frontoffice:
In the front office, you will see this provision on a walk-in and insert transaction screen. This will be visible inside the payment block. Please see the below screenshot of walk-in screen:

Note: Payment distribution will not be allowed for PG payment.

If everything is configured properly, it will directly post the call charge to a particular folio. However, if there is no guest in the room, have not checked out or setting is not configured properly then it will save as “Unposted Calls”, a user needs to post it manually from “Folio Detail” section of “Edit Transaction” screen.

When you click on “Allow PABX Call Posting” it will ask you whether you want to allow posting for this guest or not, see the below screenshot;     

If you want to allow then click on the [OK] button and if you don’t want to allow then click on [Cancel].
