You can link online payment service Stripe to your Airhost Property Management System (PMS).
This article covers the following topics:
- Setting up your Stripe account

Set Up Stripe Account
- Create an account at https://stripe.com/sg.
- Ensure your phone verification is completed under Account information.
- Tax information must also be completed under Settings > Tax details.
Add Subscription for Payment Solution
- Reservations that have been confirmed before Stripe is linked will not be automatically settled. For confirmed reservations, please log in to Stripe directly and process manual payment.
- However, if the guest updates the card information for reservation made before the link, the card information will be linked.
- Before linking, please take note of reservations that have already been settled by marking them as paid so that unnecessary settlements do not occur.
- Under My Profile > Account Setting > Subscriptions > Click Change to add Payment Solution.
- Add Payment Solution for the number of rooms to be linked.
- Click Upgrade under Payment to confirm your subscription purchase.
Link Stripe to Airhost PMS
- Go to Listing Management > Payment Accounts > + New Payment Account > Select Stripe.
- Set up your Stripe Payment Account by filling in the Name, Preferred commission rate, Preferred channel types > Click Save.
Note: Stripe payment will be processed only for the selected Preferred channel types.
- On Payment Accounts detail page of the created account > Click Connect with Stripe > Log in to Stripe.
Enable Stripe Payment for Property
- Go to House Detail menu of the property either from Dashboard > Settings.
Or Listing Management > Property List (Pro) > Nickname, or select Edit from menu dropdown.
- Select Subscription Add-Ons > Click Payment tab > In Payment Add-On, add Payment Solution usage.
- Click Enable to activate Stripe payment for the property.
- Set up when you want payment to be charged.
- You can also enable the following options:
- Wait payment settlement after 24 hours after booking (excluding last-minute booking made within 48 hours before check-in)
- When enabled, payment will be processed 24 hours after the booking is made even if payment is set to Charge immediately upon booking.
- This will avoid cancellation charges for cancellations made within 24 hours of booking.
- Do not check credit (Only check credit card info)
- When enabled, Stripe will not process authorisation for the booking amount and will only check the provided credit card validity.
- Click Save.
Change Guest Payment Option for Property on Booking.com
- On your Booking.com account, go to Property > Policies.
- Under Other policies > Guest payment options > Click Edit.
- Select supported card types > Click Save. Stripe supports VISA / Master / JCB / AMEX / Diners.
Note: The use of JCB requires a separate review by JCB.
View Your Stripe Transactions
- View your Stripe transactions under Listing Management > Payment Accounts.
Note: For failed authorisations, Report cancellation due to invalid credit card option will be displayed. This can be used to cancel Booking.com reservation if a certain period of time (usually 24 hours) has passed since the authorisation, if there is no follow up response by the customer.
