Wix Bookings: Making Credit Card Payments for Your Clients

Entering credit card details manually is the least secure way of accepting card payments. We recommend accepting manual payment only from clients you trust. Note that in case of fraud, it is the merchant who is liable. Learn more about best practices for accepting card payments.

To minimize the fraud risk, as soon as the value of your transactions adds up to over 30% of your gross payment volume (GPV), they start to be declined. If you want to make changes to this limitation, contact Wix Customer Care.
