Secure, contactless payment solutions with full PMS integration.
Contactless Payments. Latest POS Hardware. EMV- Swipe/Dip/Tap.
MyCard© is BookingCenter’s PCI Compliant Credit Card Payment Gateway and is tightly integrated with MyPMS. It is easy-to-use, eliminates the need for a separate POS, additional phone lines, monthly and transaction fees, and time-intensive auditing of settlement reports. Connect your existing Merchant Account (or, we’ll help you get a new one that saves you money) to enable ‘dip’, ‘tap’, and ‘swipe’ for credit cards.
MyCard© uses the latest POS hardware – EMV, ApplePay, NFC devices (GooglePay, Samsung Pay, etc), mobile, ‘dip’, ‘tap’, and ‘swipe’ Hardware.

There are two variants to the MyCard© System
EMV terminals support a wide range of transactions, including support for ‘dip’ transactions (where an EMV ‘chip’ card is inserted into the EMV terminal); ‘swipe’ transactions (where a credit card is swiped into the EMV terminal); and ‘tap’ where the NFC (Near Field Communications protocol that supports ApplePay, GooglePay, Samsung etc) embedded in a credit card or mobile phone is placed near the EMV terminal. The combination of MyPMS integrated with an EMV terminal provides a greater level of security.

Traditional MyCard© System
Traditional MyCard© system works with merchant accounts setup by any merchant processing bank or ISV that can board an account using the TSYS/Global, VisaNet, or Vital network our ‘lodging’ gateway is certified with. These accounts work with both ‘card present’ transactions – using a card swiper to enter credit cards of Guests or Companies – as well as ‘card not present‘ events such as Self Check-in/out or Booking Engine deposits; entered manually by a User; from a phone/fax message, etc. Keep in mind, swiping is no longer recommended by Visa or Mastercard.
The Traditional MyCard© gateway uses the Vital VirtualNet SSL with our certification under Traditional MyCard© system the Company name: “BookingCenter”, Product: “MyPMS”, Version: “3.5
Differences between Traditional MyCard©and MyCard EMV©
All cards added to the software are authorized with an auth amount defined by the property when adding new cards to MyPMS. Once a card is entered via an EMV terminal, you no longer view the full credit card numbers. The device generates a token that is used for all following payments, auths and credits. The tokenized card number is stored in the MyCard EMV© device or service. This tokenization increases the security to your guests as well as provides tighter security for your property and staff against credit card fraud.
There are four reasons why a property would have both MyCard variants used concurrently:
Setup for USA and Canadian properties as a single account for both EMV (‘card present’) and ‘not present’ (ie, Booking Engine deposits, Self Check-in/out, and manual entry) in a single MID profile.
Setup via MyCard and your account will be built on a Tsys, VisaNet, or Vital processor platform. TSYS can provide services in 87 countries’ native currencies via local banks, including Canada, USA, the Carribbean, and Latin America.
