Modern payments for modern guests


A large part of Yalo’s demographic are young guests and business guests, who typically expect more modern and varied payment options.


Mews Payments allows guests to pay at multiple parts of their stay, and once card details have been taken by the hotel, any further payments can be made instantly without the need to provide the card again. Because card details are tokenized and each card requires 3DS authentication for its first use, chargebacks and instances of fraud are extremely rare.


• 100% payment automation for all card transactions
• 0.02% chargeback ratio
• Alternative payment options are accepted, such as Google Pay and Apply Pay
