alluraDirect Launches New Direct Payment Processing Terminal for Vacation Rentals

Vacation property owners can now process all rental inquiries directly from their own payment terminal.

"Companies that sell a subscription service that list vacation homes and accommodations need to be much more transparent"

    VANCOUVER, BC, December 20, 2013 /24-7PressRelease/ -- alluraDirect Vacation Rentals, the premier marketplace for mountain based resort accommodation and lodging in Canada, today announced the immediate launch of a new direct credit card payment processing tool available to all customers. The expansion of available payment methods accessible by alluraDirect property owners, will further enhance the industry leading accommodation management service.

The new direct payment feature is alluraDirect's response to a discouraging problem that seems to be emerging in the vacation rental marketplace by larger global corporations that are placing profit before their paying customers. Typically, users who wish to have flexibility with payment options are either charged an absorbent commission rate or even penalized how their property is displayed on the website they are paying to be listed on.

"Companies that sell a subscription service that list vacation homes and accommodations need to be much more transparent," says Matt Hick, Owner Relations Manager at alluraDirect. "If two customers subscribe to the same subscription level, but one receives an unfair performance advantage based on the profitability potential of specific account settings... that's just wrong and shady."

The current landscape of online vacation rental services has been very interesting to watch. One company may make major changes to a core business function, which triggers other companies to react with their own changes; forgetting that these weekly/monthly adjustments are causing some serious implications for their paying customers.

For current alluraDirect customers, the new payment feature is available right now under the Reservation Manager section of their control panel. Property owners that are looking for an advanced rental management service with very flexible credit card payment options, make sure to check out the website. is a leading vacation rentals service, with over 600+ amazing accommodations that can be instantly booked and confirmed. Property owners who manage a rental property receive a full suite of flexible management tools that help automate their business.
