IMPORTANT: If you set ON for Enable card validation, Stripe will check in real time if the card is valid, an extra fee is request.
This way you will know right away if the credit card is not chargeable (incorrect data, expired cards, etc).
Moreover, if an invalid card comes from Booking.com or your Booking Engine EVO, Octorate will send automatically a message "credit card not valid" warning to Booking.com or to the guest that is booking from your website.
In order to use the function Enable card validation, you need to always have a positive balance on Octorate. If you want to check or recharge your Octorate balance, go to UPGRADE > BUY CREDIT.
