You’ve been asking for it and here it is. We are proud to announce that we just integrated a new payment gateway to our booking system. This is a great news as it will allow you to receive automatic online payments no matter where your business is based in Europe (check the list of the supported countries here). Also, it will make your booking process more automatic and very easy for your customers resulting in more reservations and less manual processes.
What is Braintree?
Braintree helps businesses of all sizes, from small to large enterprise, accept and process payments to help maximize business opportunities and revenue growth. Companies around the world benefit from the technology and service of Braintree coupled with the scale, backing, and confidence of the PayPal network. Braintree allows you to sell where and how you want with a flexible and scalable platform. Plus, get paid quickly — most payouts happen within two business days of transaction settlement.
With a more competitive cost per transaction than Paypal, Braintree goes further in the integration with your WebReserv booking system. Using Braintree you can manage all your transactions and refunds directly from the WebReserv control panel. Also, from a customer perspective the payment is as simple as adding the credit card details and there is no need too leave the booking page. 100% integrated, flexible and safe, doesn’t it sound like a great new feature?
Besides, Braintree provides clear insights for your business with their own seamless control panel you can access easily from any device.

How to synchronize Braintree and WebReserv?
Once you have created your account with Braintree you will need to set it up in your WebReserv account. To do so, first of all, login to your WebReserv account.
Once you’re there, click Setup – Business information – Payments, then under Payment processing select Credit card – Auto process
Then go the field Payment Gateway and select Braintree and add your Merchant ID, password 1 and password 2.
Now you just need to setup the deposit you want to get for each product at the reservation time. To do so, click Setup – Products and reservation rules – select a product – Tax/deposit and setup your deposit. You can choose between charging the full payment, a percentage, a fix amount or other options.
Congratulations, your payment gateway has been setup; you can now receive online payments with your reservations.
We hope you will enjoy the benefits of that fantastic new feature on WebReserv. Feel free to contact us for any additional question.
We wish you good business
The WebReserv Team
WebReserv now supports a new rate option: per person (flat), which makes it easier to set up flat rates for reservations. At the same time the rate setup has been updated to make it easier to enter the rates.
As of August 31, 2009, when you create new rate lists, the rate that is entered in each column is the total rate for the number of people in that column.
In the example below, the rate for the first two people in the Standard Double room is $200.00. There is an extra charge of $50.00 per person, so the rate for three people is $250.00 and the rate for four people is $300.00.
Existing rate lists are not affected by this enhancement.
With the latest WebReserv release, it is now possible to name your products/rooms/units individually. This allows you to manage and track reservations and utilization at a completely new level. For example, you can track now only what your customer reserves, but you can track exactly what unit is rented out and returned.
To name your products, go to setup -> products and reservation rules -> product details. In the list you can name each product. Typical names are room numbers (for hotels), tag numbers (car and RV rentals), serial numbers (equipment) and so forth.
When a reservation is made, you can quickly see which unit(s) that has been assigned, and if needed you can reassign the units as needed.
