We redesigned Mews products with a fresh new font. We also improved virtual credit card settlement by updating the default charge time to 6 AM—resolving issues with payments taken at midnight—and ensuring that cards are always charged when the settlement rule specifies it.

We added the option to apply restrictions to entire rate groups. We also updated the Mews Identity Scanner so that it is able to recognize identity documents from even more countries—including France, Belgium, and Poland.

New

  • Added the option to apply restrictions to entire rate groups.

Improved

  • Updated the Mews Identity Scanner to recognize identity documents from countries where the Machine Readable Zone is formatted differently from the European standard—including France, Belgium, and Poland. Try out the Mews Identity Scanner when you create a new customer or update their profile.
  • Updated the Portuguese police integration to only require information from guests who are not Portuguese.
  • Updated the legal environment for Quintanta Roo, Mexico to ensure that a city tax of 3% is automatically applied to the net accommodation total.

  • Fixed a bug that prevented customers from successfully making reservations in Distributor.

We added an icon to the Rate Management screen that takes you directly from your rates to the connected restrictions. We also upgraded the connection between Mews and Stripe, making it unnecessary to gather CVV information from guests for payment security—so we are removing the CVV field from payment screens in Commander to help speed up your daily operations.

New

Improved

  • Upgraded the connection between Mews and Stripe, making it unnecessary to collect CVV information from guests for payment security. As we continue to roll out this release, the CVV field will be removed completely from payment screens in Commander to help speed up your daily operations.
  • Improved confirmation emails for group reservations of five or more by automatically generating and attaching a PDF file to the email, so guests can more easily read their reservation details.
  • Restricted access to customer profiles when an employee does not have the Manage customers privilege.
  • Improved exports by triggering a notification to be sent automatically to the responsible employee when an export times out.
  • Improved the process of creating or requesting access to integrations in the Marketplace.
  • Renamed the Creation settlement trigger to Confirmation and updated its functionality. Now, when you select this option in your rate group settings, confirmed reservations will be settled at the time of creation and optional reservations will be settled at the time of confirmation.
  • Improved restrictions in Commander after receiving your feedback—we renamed field options and added hints to make every step of the creation process even clearer.

Fixed

  • Fixed a bug that prevented confirmation emails from being sent to guests after they confirmed an optional reservation in Navigator.
  • Fixed a bug that prevented space categories from being displayed on the New Reservation screen—blocking users from creating new reservations unless they used the old design.
