TIP OF THE WEEK: How to find all preauthorizations made in Mews?

Dear Mews community, 😎

In today’s topic I will show you how quickly to access all preauthorizations made in your property. 🏠

Navigate to Menu – finance – Payment card report. In options tick the box “Display preauthorizations” to view only those preauthorizations made in the selected period.

Here is the explanation on filter functions:

  • Start: Specify a start date to limit results to a specific time period.

  • End: Define an end date to narrow results to a specific time period.

  • Origin: Identifies the original payment source.

    • Gateway: Payment made either via Mews Payments or an Adyen direct account.

    • Manual: Refers to cards/preauthorizations charged manually.

  • Type: Choose specific card types for viewing or select "Select all" to view all results.

  • Format: Filter by the type of card used.

    • Physical: Represents a payment card physically presented or expected to be presented by the customer at a later date.

    • Virtual: Denotes a one-time payment card, often created by OTAs to pay for reservations.

  • Display cards: 
    • All Cards: Displays all payment cards.
    • Cards charged for tokenization: Shows only the cards invoiced by Mews for card protection and tokenization fees.
  • Preauthorization state: Choose the state of the preauthorizations you want the report to list. 
    • Canceled: Lists canceled preauthorizations.
    • Chargeable: Identifies preauthorizations ready for charging.
    • Charged: Lists charged preauthorizations.
    • Expired: Includes preauthorizations that couldn't be charged due to expired payment cards.
    • Failed: Lists preauthorizations that couldn't be charged.
    • Pending: Shows preauthorizations that have been charged but not yet finalized.

After you have selected the correct filter options, click View report to display the report.
