Important Notes

  • Not all payment gateways support AVS.
  • Make sure to still have "3D Secure" disabled or not set as required in your payment gateway settings.
  • If your gateway has 3D Secure and AVS bundled together, you will not be able to make AVS mandatory.

  1. Once you select where you want the billing address requirements to appear, another option will open up for you to set up the credit card configurations.

If you are going to make this a required field in your gateway, set the billing address as required for all options in Cloudbeds PMS. Not doing this can break your payment gateway connection.

Payment Gateway Settings

Login to your Payment Gateway extranet and make sure that AVS settings are enabled on your gateway.

  • All payment gateways have different configuration options.
  • For further assistance with your payment gateway, contact their support team to ensure that AVS is enabled in the gateway settings so transactions can be processed correctly.
