? What is a bank imprint? How does the bank imprint work?

A bank imprint is a payment authorisation is sent to your bank to place a hold (called a debit authorisation or imprint) or charge on your account for the amount of the reservation. The imprint is a guarantee to the landlord that the funds are available in the the account. An imprint is not a debit of the funds.

The imprint system operated by Weroom is similar to the imprint system used by car rental companies and hotels.

When you request a booking on Weroom, if your bank accepts this payment authorisation and the funds are available on the account, an imprint is made. The imprint is not a debit of the funds.

The imprint is valid for 7 days and will be automatically released after 7 days. Once the imprint is released, your bank may take additional time to process the release before the funds can be used in your account. Each bank has their own imprint policy, with an average 6 days release period. Please get in touch with your bank to find out more about their imprint policy.
