If you're using a third-party terminal that is integrated with Mews, you need to set up a few accounting preferences regarding how payments are handled.

Add accepted card types

  1. Go to Main menu > Settings > Property.
  2. Click Accounting configuration.
  3. Find the Accepted manual payment card types field, and select all of the cards you accept for third-party terminal payments.
  4. Set default accounting categories for third-party terminal payments: Payments with accepted cards: Find the Terminal payments section, and select the default accounting category for each accepted card type.Payments with unspecified card types: Find the Unspecified card payment field, and select the default accounting category.
  5. Click Save.

Require receipt identifier for terminal payments

If your terminal receipts are printed with an identifying number on them, you can choose whether or not your staff is required to add that number to Mews when they take terminal payments.

Tip: Not requiring the receipt identifier can significantly speed up check-in or check-out.

  1. Go to Main menu > Settings > Property.
  2. Click Accounting configuration.
  3. Find the Options field.
  4. From the drop-down list, select Optional credit card payment details.
  5. Click Save.
