New Partnership Gives Cloudbeds’ Properties A Secure Payment Option in Latin America
SAN DIEGO — Cloudbeds and PayU recently partnered to offer a secure electronic payment processing solution to hospitality properties located in Latin America. Properties that activate this integration will be able to receive online payments from guests whether they pay with a local or international credit card.
"This partnership with PayU provides state of the art security and payment automation to our properties and their guests," said Sebastien Leitner, Director of Global Partnerships at Cloudbeds. "It aligns nicely with our product and partnership strategy."
Properties that use Cloudbeds' property management system will be able to process payments online directly from the Cloudbeds' interface without a physical point of sale device.
In addition to Latin America, this technology will soon be available to properties located in India.
