Here are some additional things to note while you’re integrating your account:

  1. EZRentOut does not charge any commission/fee on transactions.
  2. If credit card details of a customer are entered by staff or admin user, they are always saved to your merchant gateways’ on-file storage, avoiding the need to re-enter credit card details for subsequent orders.
  3. For security reasons, EZRentOut doesn’t record this credit card information in its own database. Instead, it creates credit card profiles of customers in and only accesses this credit card information on ‘charge payment’ requests.
  4. To check the credit card profiles of customers, log into and go to Tools –> Click ‘Customer Information Manager’ in the main left-side menu.

You can charge payment for multiple orders to the same or different customers in one go. For tips on charging payments on multiple orders, read this post before you begin. 

Here is how you charge mass payments for multiple orders:

  1. Go to Orders listing page and multi-select orders you need to charge payment for.
  2. Click on ‘Actions’ and select ‘Charge Payments’.
  3. A dialog box will appear for Order Payments (see image below). Here you can configure details such as payment date, preferred payment gateway, order payment specifics, and comments. Note: CC payments can only be charged to customers with their cards saved on-file.
  4. Hit ‘Charge Payment’ once done. Here’s what you should see next:

Pre-Authorize or Hold Payments

Pre-Authorizing a payment is also supported. Say, you want to hold an advance payment of $275 and when the payment date arrives, deduct the entire rental price e.g. $429, including the pre-authorized amount. You just need to choose ‘Pre-Authorize’ when charging payment.

You can then charge or cancel the hold.

  • If you charge the Pre-Authorized amount, your customer has to pay the remaining $20.75 via card or cash.
  • If you cancel the Pre-Authorized amount, your customer is entitled to pay the entire rental fee of $170.75 via card or cash.
