Credit card processing

Rookie questions…when I went to link my OR account thru API to VRBO, I got an error that says I needed a credit card processor. However, I thought VRBO requires hosts to use their credit card processing services. Any info would be helpful. Also, I set up a PayPal account and integration thinking that would be sufficient since renters could pay by credit card thru PayPal, however I got the same error. Thanks, in advance, for any insights.

Actually, one of the Vrbo API requirements is specifically to have your own credit card payment processor - with the API, Vrbo does not handle guest payments.

Unfortunately, PayPal is a nonstandard card processor and does not meet the technical requirements of the API, so cannot be used for that purpose.
