Credit Card Authorizations


Multiple guest have been having similar opportunities during their stay that upon check in/stay their credit/debit cards will decline. The front desk will try again to authorize the card and it will continue to decline or authorize however, once the guest moves funds the system authorizes their accounts for the entire amount (including the declined amounts). 

Currently, we have a guest checking in for 3 nights and we are trying to authorize his card for $300 but it declined. When he checked his bank account it shows we took $177.70 but in SnP it says declined $0.00 authorized.

Kindly let us know how to proceed since this is a large inconvenience to guest.

Warm Regards,

Lauren Zielinski
