Authorize.net for Hotel PMS Software
Authorize.net for Hotel PMS is now available as a payment processor, in addition to Stripe and PayPal. Authorize.net is one of the world’s leading payment processors. Backed by Visa, it is available to hotels based in the U.S., Canada, Europe, and Australia.
To connect with your Authorize.net account, go to ‘Settings > Payment Gateway’ in your Bellebnb Front Desk. If you already have another payment processor connected and want to switch to use Authorize.net, you will first need to disable your Payment Gateway. To do this, click ‘Disable’ at the bottom right of the window.
From the dropdown menu, select ‘Authorize.net’ for the ‘Processor’. To connect, you will need API credentials from your Authorize.net account. To retrieve your credentials, log in to your Authorize.net account and go to ‘Account > Settings’ (left menu), then click ‘API Credentials & Keys’ under ‘Security Settings.’ Follow the instructions to generate your API credentials.
Once you have done that, enter your API Login ID and Transaction Key in Bellebnb to activate the payment processor.
Test Your Connection
Now that you have established a connection to your Authorize.net account, you should do a test payment with one of your own credit cards. Just create a test booking in your Front Desk, then click to process a payment. Enter your credit card details and submit. You don’t have to use the full amount of the booking—you can process a small payment of just $1.
Check that the transaction goes through without any error, then check that it appears in your Authorize.net account. You can search by the transaction Id that shows up with the transaction confirmation in the ‘Payments’ section for this booking (under the ‘Invoice’ tab).
Before you connect to Authorize.net you should be familiar with their payment workflow. Once you make the connection to your Bellebnb account, don’t forget to test a live payment using one of your own credit cards to make sure the connection was done correctly.
