Payment processing is an essential aspect of the online guest journey for hotels. With the rise of online bookings, hotels must provide their guests with a simple, safe, and convenient payment experience. Integrated payments have become an indispensable solution for hotels to optimise the booking process and provide a seamless experience during the guest's stay. 

In this video, we discuss the difference between integrated and non-integrated payments, the benefits, the methods through which payments can be made in a hotel focusing on integrated payments, how integrated payments work with hotel operational technologies such as the Booking Engine, PMS, and POS, available methods of payment, types of payments, and how most integrated payment systems work.
