Do Not pay for GoogleMaps or GooglePlaces subscription this is a scam
SCAM ALERT: A number of accommodation owners have made us aware of bogus callers who claim to be offering to put your accommodation on GoogleMaps and GooglePlaces. They say they can do this for £149 per year or £199 for two years.
It is essentially free to get listed on Google so do not pay these cold calling scammers any money – it is a sham.

Many smaller properties use PayPal for card transactions, this could be very expensive compared to FabPay. If you are paying PayPal 3.4% on a debit card this could cost you £10.20 on a £300 booking. With FabPay a debit card transaction costs only 22 pence + a max gateway fee of 75 pence, a total of no more than 97 pence using FabPay. Massive saving !
The same £300 payment from a personal credit card with FabPay would be 1.35% + gateway fee i.e. £4.05 + 75 pence = £4.80 still less than half the price of PayPal. Click here for full cost comparison of FabPay vs PayPal
With FabPay there is a one off setup fee of £69. Credits are then bought to pay for each transaction (gateway fee). The more credits you buy the cheaper each transaction is (payment).
The most you ever pay is 75 pence but it you are using a larger number of transactions you could be paying as little as 24 pence per payment (gateway fee).
