Buy now pay later options such and Paypal or other payment option integration solutions
Affirm, klarna etc.
We've looked into some of these, and while we always want to keep an open mind, we weren't impressed by the value-add - the costs seemed to be excessive, as well as certain technical aspects that would add challenges and complexities to the normal flow of handling bookings.
We are now losing bookings because we are unable to integrate features such as Affirm. Is OwnerRez open to relooking at this. Some bookings are upwards of tens of thousands of dollars and clients want more flexible options.
I'm in total agreement with you. People using affirm all over the place for spreading payments.
I agree as well. I talked to a few VRBO hosts and the Affirm payment option is very important to them. The VRBO PM integration rep also just told me this morning that Affirm accounts for over 30% of their payment options.
In fact if you filter for “Pay Later With Affirm” you’ll notice that over 85% of the properties have this option so our properties would end up being filtered out.
For an expensive rental this is a payment option for many people.
