Seamless Pre-Check-In with OKKAMI and Currency Select: Hassle-Free, Secure, and Multi-Currency Convenience!

OKKAMI has seamlessly integrated with Currency Select, a PCI-certified currency conversion and payment processing platform, in conjunction with Opera, a hotel property management system, providing hotels with the capability to pre-authorize credit cards with a zero amount in any currency for pre check-in. This feature is accessible to guests using the hotel app, enabling them to check in up to 48 hours before arrival or during the check-in time.

When guests use the hotel app to pre-check-in, OKKAMI initiates a pre-authorization request with Currency Select. Currency Select, being PCI-certified, meticulously verifies the credit card information and authorizes the zero amount in the guest’s preferred currency. Once the guest has completed the check-in process, OKKAMI generates a unique token, sent to Opera, representing the guest’s pre-authorized credit card.

Pre-authorization with zero amount in any currency offers numerous advantages for both hotels and guests. For hotels, it ensures that guests have ample funds to cover their stay and potential charges in their preferred currency, thereby reducing the risk of no-shows and fraudulent activities. Additionally, hotels can enhance the guest experience by allowing them to pre-pay for their stay conveniently in their desired currency.

For guests, this feature presents a hassle-free way to pre-check-in, eliminating the need to wait in line at the front desk. It also provides peace of mind, assuring guests that their credit card information is secured. The PCI certification of Currency Select further underlines the commitment to data security, ensuring a safe and secure pre-check-in process for guests and hotels alike.
