- Improved User Interface/User Experience (UI/UX) - enhances the way you interact with the Guesty platform
- Payment processor connectivity (Payment Gateway) - facilitates and secures online transactions
- PCI Level 1 Service Provider Certification - ensures payment processing meets the highest security standards
