The integration between Clock PMS+ and one of the leading payment processors - WorldLine/Six allows you to seamlessly process online payments from various points - Web Reservation system, MyBooking portal, or through the guest folios.
It supports all features part of the payment processing package - tokenization, pre-authorization + capture/release, refunds, using physical card terminals, and/or offering alternative payment methods.

To configure the SaferPay module, please complete the following steps:
- In Clock PMS+ go to menu Settings->All Settings->Six Payments-> section Saferpay E-commerce settings

- Click the blue 'Add' button on the top right and enter the details.
- POS (1) - this is the terminal ID set in your Worldline/Six account.

Note: In most cases, the devices you purchase from Worldline/Six will arrive configured and you simply need to connect them to the local network and power. However, in case you receive a non-configured terminal, please use the attached file - Hospitality Setup description cCredit Gateway EN V 1.4 - to configure it or alternatively, reach out to cCredit support for assistance.
Alternative payment methods
With Worldline/Six you can offer your guests various methods of payment, not strictly with a card. These vary from different online banking solutions to 'wallet' apps. You will need to first have those configured in your Worldline/Six account. Please consult with your Worldline/Six representative for setting those up.
Once done, follow these steps in Clock PMS+:
- Settings->All Settings->Six Payments->section 'Payment page (alternative payment methods) settings'
- Payment page - terminal (1) - enter the payment page terminal ID that is set up in Worldline/Six to handle these alternative payment methods.
- Payment page payment methods (2) - select which alternative payment methods you will use/offer.
- enable the Payment page function (3)
Once done, when guests need to make payment, they will have the option to choose:
- pay with a card, in which case they directly enter the details in the form and proceed
- pay with an alternative method, in which case they will be redirected to a page hosted by Worldline/Six and proceed with completing the payment through the alternative method.
Note: Since such alternative methods do not involve credit/debit cards, you will not receive a credit card (token) in the booking.
When you have completed the configurations of the modules you will use, select the Currency in which payment amounts will be sent to Worldline/Six and mark the connection Live.
Once the above is completed, navigate to Clock PMS+ menu Settings->All Settings->Credit Card and select the following:
- In the section Payment Service Provider, select SixPayments from the dropdown menu (1).
- Select if you will require guests to enter CSV code when entering card details (2).
- Select if you require guests to enter their Address when entering card details (2).
- Check the selections in section 'Accepted Credit Cards' and update them if needed (3).
Finally, you need to set your Guarantee options with the correct payment service.
- Go to menu Settings->All Settings->Guarantee option
- edit your guarantee options and select 'Credit Card tokenization/payment' as a payment service.
Web Reservation System
In order for guests to complete their booking on your website, they will need to provide credit card details and depending on the guarantee option settings, complete payment through Worldline/Six to finalize their booking.
Guests will be able to guarantee their booking or simply pay their bill through the MyBooking Portal.
Tasks set in the Autopilot will be handled through Wordline/Six.
Please refer to THESE articles for more information about what actions you can do through the guest folios, reports to track transactions, and more.
Important: Successful transactions will automatically be posted to the folios.
Configuring in Clock POS
Settings are done from the menu Management->Six Payments and the process is identical as the one in Clock PMS+.
