You’re SCA Compliant With Inn Style

hand holding credit card for online payment

As you’re well aware, there are impending changes to regulations regarding card processing and card handling that are due to come into effect from March 14th 2022, namely PSD2 and SCA.

These are significant changes and will directly impact the way you collect funds from your guests in the future, as SCA brings significant security improvements to the way you facilitate payments and the way card data is handled/stored. 

Like many in our industry, you may well have already had payments declined by some issuing banks who are already demanding additional layers of security before authorisation will be granted.

Whilst this may be frustrating at times, the desired effect is that your future transactions will be frictionless, more secure and legally compliant.

As your service provider, we have worked diligently in preparation for this deadline, to ensure your payment facilities remain compliant. Simply put, Inn Style has done all the heavy lifting to ensure you’re fully SCA compliant. 

Inn Style has numerous different payment options and different methods of supporting these transactions, some of which are simply no longer commercially viable.  With this in mind, we have decided to simplify and streamline this across all our subscriptions.

There are a few important updates to our pricing that you need to be aware of.  Please select your payment gateway below for more information on the changes to our monthly fees for Stripe and Inn Charge payment gateways.

From the 1st April 2022, we will be making the following changes:

These new fees will standardise processing costs amongst our entire subscription base. It also enables us to continue to maintain multiple payment gateways, giving wider choice and allowing for the continued maintenance, development and enhancement of these payment gateways to ensure frictionless transactions and greater security for all.

These changes will only affect customers processing payments through their Inn Style accounts. Those who do not take deposits or who do not process payments will be unaffected.

We have useful guides within the help section on SCA, Payment Gateways, PSD2 and card security, that can be found here:

Changes to your Payment Gateway: Stripe

  • For customers who have joined us prior to August 2021 and are using the original integrated payment gateway, we will be upgrading your connected account to facilitate Stripe Checkout
  • The upgrade to Stripe Checkout allows you to use Digital Wallets and will allow all transactions to comply with 3DS, PSD2 and SCA regulations. Where applicable, we will also offer faster payouts of 3 business days. 
  • Digital Wallets – such as Apple Pay or Google Wallet – has become one of the most convenient payment processes, because the customer’s payment details are already stored in their digital wallet. Accepting this payment method opens your business to millions of users who find this the safest way to transact online. 
  • You will also be able to take advantage of MOTO payments, where you can input customers’ card details over the phone.  (This will become a far less secure method of taking payments however and liability for fraudulent transactions will become your responsibility)
  • For Stripe customers who already make use of Stripe Checkout, you will now also be able to make use of MOTO payments (with the same liability as above). 

Changes to monthly fees with Inn Style & Stripe

  • For our current loyal customers, we will be removing the monthly payment gateway fee but replacing this with a 0.2% transaction fee across all connected accounts. This is charged at source.
  • Stripe will continue to charge 1.4%+20p for their services.
  • New subscription customers (that join the Inn Style family after April 2022) will pay a £10 monthly payment gateway fee and 0.3% transaction fees.

* These changes will only affect customers processing payments through their Inn Style accounts. Those who do not take deposits or who do not process payments will be unaffected.

Changes to monthly fees with Inn Charge

  • For as long as we possibly could, we have absorbed costs associated with Inn Charge, Sadly, our current payment gateway fee is no longer commercially viable. 
  • For customers using Inn Charge, this will be increased to £20+VAT per month, with a 0.4% transaction fee per transaction. 
  •  New subscription customers (that join the Inn Style family after April 2022) will pay a £25 monthly payment gateway fee and 0.5% transaction fees.
  • As this can not be taken at source this will be invoiced to you based on your monthly payment volumes on the last working day of each month.  With collection 14 days later from your subscription account.

* These changes will only affect customers processing payments through their Inn Style accounts. Those who do not take deposits or who do not process payments will be unaffected.
