How does the RMS Vault work?

Working with Online Channels

When credit card details are passed to RMS via an external online channel (E.g. Wotif or Booking.com) we will take this card information and store it encrypted in a secure location.

When the card is stored a Token is then passed back to RMS allowing you to access the RMS Vault from RMS 9 to obtain the card information for that reservation.

Working with the RMS Book Now Button

If you do not wish to take a deposit/online payment at the time the online booking is processed using the RMS Book Now Button then you will need to check the option at the top of the screen named 'No Deposit/Payment Required'.

 

By checking this option you will then need to decide on which of the three Credit Card Storing Methods you wish to use;

- No Credit Card Capture

- RMS Vault

- Own Gateway

How do I get Card CVV Numbers?

When card information is sent to the RMS Vault CVV details will not be stored for security reasons; instead an email will be sent (using the below Hierarchy) advising you of the CVV number for the Online Booking.

 

The information will be contained within a password protected PDF attachment.  The password you will require to open this PDF is your RMS Client Number. 

 

In the case that your database is RMS Central (multi property) then you will need to know your Owner

RMS Client Number. 

 

If you are uncertain of this number please contact our support team to verify.

 

When you access the RMS Vault for CC information, each CC will have a randomly generated Reference Number shown, this Number can be used to search your email to locate the CVV information.

Updating Email Information

If a user has forgotten their RMS Vault password a reset password is emailed to them.

The email address that the reset is sent to works from the below hierarchy;
