Freetobook Low Cost Payment gateway Pay as You Go
Freetobook will shortly be launching FabPay, their new payment system. For the first time ever, accommodation providers in the UK and Ireland can enjoy a Pay As You Go card handling system. This flexible and fully integrated payment gateway will be available without nasty monthly fees, whilst enabling secure card transactions for less than the cost of a second-class stamp.
Using SagePay’s PCI level 1 secure vault for all transactions means you’ll no longer have any PCI headaches!
If you already have a card handling account you can connect it directly into freetobook via FabPay, and if you don’t yet have a card agreement we have an attractive deal through CardSave/Streamline.
Card payments and/or card details can also be securely “tokenized” on the SagePay system for later payment or repeat payment. Many of us are familiar with the format xxxx xxxx xxxx 1234, so even if the word tokenization is new to us the concept probably isn’t. Using this process, there’s no need to worry about storing cards because you can securely tokenize them for later payment….another world first from freetobook.
We’ve developed FabPay solely to help solve the payment collection issues faced by accommodation providers in this increasing online market place. Due to the overwhelming interest in FabPay, we advise that you register early for priority information– email email@example.com with your property ID and the words FabPay Priority in the subject line.
Look out for further updates by blog, facebook, twitter and email. In the meantime watch our FabPay video to find out more.

Sounds great, how long does it take for a card payment transaction to be credited to your bank account?
This will depend on your Merchant Agreement – typically a few days.
can you tell me the rates asap as I am just signing up with cardsave
The rates are in the video – currently 1.35% for credit cards etc…
I already have a card payment agreement with Streamline, if I take FabPay on, will this be an addition to my Streamline account, or replace it ? George @ The Capri
You can use your existing card deal if you like, we can hook it into the payment gateway.
please include auburn house in the fab pay launch.
I have found using freetobook a really good system which has helped us in guesthouse operation. I have been looking at the system of Fabpay, however I am already tied into a 36 month contract with Payment Sense.
I cannot see how this system would be any cost saving so perhaps you could assist. I have looked at the blog and it seems that there is four payments to be made associated with this method 1.35% plus 8p, plus 24p,plus 22p.
Any help you can provide would be appreciated as we have had customers who have booked elsewhere due to the only payment method being paypal.
Do we need to be using Sage software ourselves to use this?
The SagePay gateway is integrated into the freetobook system it is included in FabPay so you won’t need to do it yourself.

Currently use Elavon merchant account, €15.00 per month and 1.7% on viva / Mastercard while 2.5% on American Express.
I know there are free systems like Stripe and sumup but I dont like system where you key clients card details into computers or phones much perfer old fashioned terminal think most people thrust them.
I hope your system will offer chip & pin / swipe facilities also.

Fab pay looks good – I would like to link it to my already installed Freeto book.
Coming soon so watch this space 🙂
I am interested in fabpay , I currently use paypal which has been ok except I do not take phone payments with this .
You will be able to take phone payments with FabPay using a virtual terminal.
I have been using Paypal and find it time consuming. Having to send invoices for final payment and transferring funds to my bank account. I have been looking at other options, but they have been so expensive. This sounds ideal.
Hi, Will we be able to use FabPay for face to face transactions?
We love freetobook, it’s brilliant and hope to be using fabpay before long.
Yes, you will be able to type in the details while logged into freetobook. The payment will then show against the relevant booking.
I don’t have card payments just now and struggle with bank transfers from abroad so am very interested in Fabpay. Please send me details as soon as possible. Will I have to join another payment scheme?
We will be launching FabPay in the next few weeks, it will be a cost effective way to process credit cards and you will not be tied in or have any monthly bills. It is a pay as you go service designed for accommodation providers. I’m very confident it will be a good service for you. As soon as its ready we will be emailing all our customers.
