We Make It Easy for Your Guests to Book with You
Here at Ascent, we’re passionate about helping premier hospitality businesses like yours run smoothly and safely. One way we accomplish this is by providing as many convenient and secure options as possible for your guests to pay for your services.
If there are two top snags that will prevent your valuable guests from booking with you, it’s
- the inability to pay with their preferred payment method, or
- a complicated and confusing payment portal
By partnering with Ascent, we take all of the snags and stress out of your payment processing— so you can focus on being the best host you can be.
Here are all of the ways Ascent allows your guests to easily and smoothly pay for their stay.
The tried-and-true payment method for all types of travel, your guests can use any of their favorite credit cards to book with you, including Visa, MasterCard, American Express, and Discover.
Some guests prefer to use their bank debit cards instead of a classic credit card, and Ascent allows you to easily accept those as well. Although the transaction itself operates exactly like a credit card transaction, debit cards mean that the cash funds are being withdrawn directly from your guest’s bank account and into yours.
Book Now, Pay Later (BNPL)
A BNLP option lets your guests purchase their stay with you now and pay for the booking with smaller installment payments over a period of time. Often called a “modern-day layaway” plan, BNLP has been quickly gaining popularity in the past few years, and we recommend being ready and able to offer this option to your guests.
E-checks operate just like those old-fashioned paper checks we use to write and sign; except they are digital instead of a physical check. Guests can use their bank routing numbers and account numbers to transfer payments to you. E-checks are sent through a network called ACH, which stands for Automatic Clearing House, which safely clears and verifies all e-checks.
This new form of payment is skyrocketing in popularity, so much so that we’ve recently written several articles clarifying this burgeoning frontier. Check out our introduction to crypto article, our crypto terms and definitions post, and our easy-to-understand answers to all of your crypto questions.
Secure Payment Gateway
A secure payment gateway is similar to an old-fashioned cash register, except of course it’s completely virtual. But just like those traditional countertop cash registers, your secure payment gateway should be easy to use as well as totally secure. Ascent provides both of those important traits to your business payment processing, giving peace of mind to both you and your guests.
Simple & Safe Payment Processing is Our Sweet Spot
By partnering with the payment processing experts at Ascent, you’re placing your premier hospitality business in safe and capable hands, while allowing your valued guests to easily and safely book and pay for their stay.
