How do I make sure my guests can pay with AmEx?
Transaction failed for my guest. I think it might be because I am not set up for AMEX. But would it even have allowed her to put in an AMEX if I don't take them? Once again confused. Bank code was: do_not_honor. If AMEX is the issue is there a way to override this and take AMEX? Guest has had great trouble making this reservation and paying for it and I would prefer not to trouble her further. I have contacted Stripe with the same question.
Hi @Jill-Evarts - to accept AmEx, you will want to make sure that your merchant account is set up to do so. Of note, by default AmEx will be accepted when you set up a merchant account in MyVR, so these instructions also serve to demonstrate disallowing a guest to pay with AmEx.
To check this, head to the Merchant Accounts section of MyVR.
Then click on Actions > Manage:
Then click on Supported Cards:
Then make sure that the AmEx setting is set to yes:
