How-to: Charge Your Client Any Amount Manually In YouLi

If you have permission to charge a card - use Make a Charge to charge via connected Stripe, Square, PayPal or Cybersource

Why should I use the Make a Charge function in YouLi?

In the U.S. and Canada: Stripe is going to charge more for charges made by "manually entering a credit card" via their Dashboard.

Thankfully, YouLi is here to save you that extra expense. The extra fee will not apply for:

  • Travelers making payments via YouLi Trip Page
  • Travelers making payments via YouLi Checkout Flow
  • Planners making a charge via "Make a Charge" <--- for Planners

TIP: You also don't pay any fee (YouLi booking fee or Stripe fee) if you use one of our no-fee direct payment methods!


Charge any amount to a Traveler with Make a Charge - for Stripe, Square & Cybersource

NOTE: We support Stripe, Square, PayPal and Cybersource for this feature

How do I Make a Charge?

  1. From your MENU, click on MANAGE PAYMENTS 


  2. Click MANAGE > MAKE A CHARGE next to the Traveler you are Making a Charge on behalf of

  3. Enter the amount to charge the Traveler - this defaults to the next amount due or balance, but you can charge whatever they have approved you to charge! 💳✨


  4. Enter the Traveler's credit card details. 

WARNING: Securely enter it into the form. Never write it down or save it in YouLi fields other than the form provided (like PLANNER NOTES)!

This is extremely risky for you and your clients and prohibited by YouLi's terms of service.
