You can process credit card transactions in Guesty by connecting to an external payment processor, such as Stripe or Merchant Warrior. You can connect multiple Merchant Warrior accounts to your Guesty account and you can use different payment processors at the same time, but each listing can only be connected to one account - so it can be connected to Merchant Warrior or Stripe, for example, but not both. Watch our video or follow our instructions to connect a Merchant Warrior account to Guesty.
