Once RaccoonPay has been activated you can easily send an email to the guests asking for a payment or prepayment.

How to create a payment request

Go to the setting icon at the bottom left and navigate to the Documents tab at the top.



Scroll down until you reach the Payment request and click on add new document.



Give the document the correct name (this will also be the subject of the e-mail).

If necessary, add an appropriate text and click on save.

How to Send a Payment Request?

Open the reservation or add a new reservation and don't forget to add a booker first.

At the bottom right of the page you will find the option payment | If the payment request has been activated and an e-mail address is present, you will also see the option payment amount.



The outstanding amount is filled in automatically but you can also request a partial payment. Fill in the box with 0,00 with the desired amount for a partial payment.

Click on the button “Request payment for..” and you will see a pop-up with the proposed mail address.



Click on “OK” and this will send the request.

Good to know

To send a payment request, the reservation must meet the following requirements:

There must always be a booker in the reservation with an email address ([email protected] guest.nl is a fictitious email address).

There must be a due amount in the reservation.

Once the payment request has been sent, it is not immediately visible in the RaccoonPay overview. Only when the guest pays or cancels the payment is it visible in the RaccoonPay overview.

The nationality and language of the guest have to be added during the reservation process, to ensure that the nationality related payment method is available when paying a payment request.
