PAYMENT INFORMATION & OPTIONS, Four methods to choose from:
1. Free electronic funds transfer. My payment hub page isHere, and more info is posted on my Dwolla payment page. Setting up a Dwolla account is free and easy, but does take a few days to verify your bank account. The company is basically trying to subvert the credit card industry's $50 billion per year profits by charging only 25 cents per transaction instead of 2-3% of the total amount charged.
2. Use this self-payment link
using Visa/MC/Discover (note: I will still need a valid credit card on file for
the cleaning and damage deposits):
Where it asks for your reservation number, just use the name of the house
followed by the dates of your stay (ie. Bridger Mtn Lodge July 17-24, 2012)
3. I can process a credit card payment with your card information. Personal (not business) US-based Visa, Mastercard & Discover only*. If you're comfortable emailing the information then type it in right here, otherwise I'll get the info over the phone. I'll need your billing address if different from above along with the number and expiration date.
Full name as it appears on card
Billing address (street or PO, city, zip)
* For non-US payments there is a 1% surcharge for credit card transactions. If you need to process a payment with a credit card from a country other than the US, then you will be charged the surcharge. Other options are check in the mail or bank transfer.
