Paying online, or even taking payments online can be scary. Our #1 goal at 4stay is to make sure you can trust us. We are with you, not against you.
Paying via 4stay is totally safe. This is because we use the 'Stripe' platform for our payments. Once you decide to submit the payment and input the card information it is not stored on our platform it is stored on Stripe (where 4stay has an account). You can read about security at Stripe here: https://stripe.com/docs/security/stripe
That's why it is our promise to you that payments will always go directly through us. We will never give your private information to your guest/host. This is why we stress to reinforce the severity of paying through 4stay or taking payment through 4stay. We cannot protect information that is handled outside of our platform.
