How can i connect a system for payments other than stripe or Square?

Hi Betty,

You can take payment however wish. Stripe and Square are the only two that integrate with Houfy. If you copy/paste this link it explains how transactions work no matter the payment: https://www.houfy.com/carl-and-bridget/posts/how-does-a-traveler-reserve-and-make-payment-14511370

Help! I'd like to connect Square to my bank account for accepting payments. However, I do NOT have any square 'reader' or device -- nor do I want one. I want these payments to be handled electronically without requiring any hardware. Is this possible?

Yes Carmen, you will need to contact Square directly.

Is there a way of Houfy adding the merchant fee (eg. 3%) for taking Square payments?

Most of my guests pay by direct bank transfer as this is free but I do give them the option of paying by credit card (via Square) if they pay an extra 3%. I have added this as an extra fee in the Pricing page but this doesn’t seem to transfer to the payment request sent to guest. What am I doing wrong?

Can other payment methods (like Venmo or Zelle) be used outside of Houfy? In other words, is there a way accept the registration manually instead of it being accepted automatically on payment through Stripe or Square?
