Swikly is the specialist of the online security deposit. With Swikly, protect your rentals, simplify your bookings, in all confidence.
Swikly allows you to protect your rentals and ensures your bookings with an online security deposit . Swikly is aimed at all professionals in the field of short-term rental, vehicle rental, and all rental companies in general. With Swikly you can protect any rented goods - such as an apartment, a vehicle or equipment - without the hassle of cheques, money transfers, or credit card imprints.
To avoid all these constraints, Swikly has invented the swik: A swik is a particular banking transaction that guarantees and secures a rental or a reservation with an online security deposit.
The "swik caution" allows you to protect a property by sending a security deposit request (without debiting or blocking funds on your customers' bank cards).
The "swik reservation" allows you to avoid no-shows and to guarantee the presence of your customers without making them pay in advance by sending deposit request (without debiting or blocking funds on your customers' bank cards).
How it works ?
A swik is created from a credit card imprint that must be entered by your customer on a secure form.
The latter must be sent by email and/or by SMS a few days before the beginning of the rental. It can also be made available at the reception in the agency or at the check-in. Security deposit requests can be easily automated thanks to our partners (PMS and Channels managers), our API and others easy-to-use tools ! Icing on the cake, a swik could be secured for a few hours or for several months ! The secured amounts are neither blocked nor debited (there is no pre-authorization). Credit card limit are not impacted by securing a swik.
In case of damages or no-show, you can collect a part or the entire amount of the security deposit, and amounts are guaranteed as part of our premium service. Swikly is your trusted third party that takes car of everything and handle any disputes, all you have to do is receive your money !
If you don’t need to collect the security deposit, this one is automatically released a few days after the rental.
Swikly also allows to ask for an online payment and it could be at the same time as a security deposit. This is very practical to avoid asking your customers to enter a credit card several times.
