Red Dot and BML Payment gateway enable instant booking engine payments

Good news for all hotel and resort owners in the Maldives: Red Dot is coming and website booking engines will finally be able to take payments with the BML payment gateway.

Popular booking engines like TravelClick, Ezee, Fastbooking (D-Edge) are all compatible with Red Dot and their partnership with BML will enable guests to pay on the hotel website instead of using a payment gateway like it is often used today.

Implementation and benefits

I am going to meet the person leading the implementation in June 2019, in the Bank of Maldives headquarters in Male where we will discuss the steps of integration and action plan for resorts.

This is initiative will not only generate more revenue for hotels and resorts in the Maldives but will also improve the booking experience for guests and minimize the risk of payment or other financial fraud.

Manual payment collection, bank transfers, and other payment-related procedures have been a real headache till now for hotel management teams in the Maldives. An estimated 27% of reservations have been canceled by guests because of the primitive and complicated payment methods available today.
