Sub-Module 3) Payment Processing Switch CRS
This will function as follows : When booking in our own inventory, On clicking the make payment button after user fills out the payment form ( the last page of the reservation booking cycle) the system will check if the payment switch for this hotel is enabled/disabled.
If enabled it will collect the payment from B2C client in our account but if this switch is disabled then the system will not process the payment but will shoot a email to the hotelier with the payment information.
Only superadmin can activate/deactivate this switch. This requires a authentication. In this module we need a summary for this feature i.e. we can check what all switches are activated or deactivated.
