Why Do I Need a Payment Processor For My Vacation Rental?
You might have started your vacation rental business by listing your properties on OTAs such as Airbnb, Booking.com and Expedia. Gradually, you might have also noticed the considerable amounts you pay in the form of commissions to OTAs.
Despite its obstacles, direct booking is a substitute for conventional ways of getting reservations through property listing sites and OTAs. Knowing that 15%-30% of short term rental owners’ net profit is paid to OTAs as commissions is enough to encourage aiming for direct bookings. One of the main challenges you need to deal with is collecting payments while getting a booking through your website.
