Notes about Paypal, welcome to new lodges and all about emails


Paypal is the lowest cost online payment gateway and probably the safest for both buyers and sellers.  The way Paypal achieves the “safety” part of this equation is partly by verifying information about buyers and sellers and partly by taking precautions related to account activity.  Sometimes the safety comes at a price, when activities that are valid nevertheless get caught up in Paypal’s safety precautions.

Enhancements in your system now

  • You can now specify a maximum number of people per booking.  Look in Site config -> Booking Details for this parameter.  BTW nothing stops a person from just splitting their booking into two.  But at least they are aware of the rule.
  • The login screen is now easier to use, with a radio button that defaults to “member login”.  Administrators must choose the other option to get the “username” and “password” fields.

Newsletter 29/8/2009

Enhancements in your system now

  • Another new report, and reports page made easier.  Some reports are on-screen, while others are downloads in spreadsheet format (CSV).  These are now presented side by side on the same page instead of mixed up together.  A new on-screen report is now live which shows bookings in order of the date the booking was created, oldest first.  By selecting “TENTATIVE” status, you can see the TENTATIVE bookings that have expired and buttons allow you to cancel, edit or send an invoice email directly from the report screen.
