Client Default Payment Method
The payment method required for new users – when a new user is making a booking for the first time without a pre-existing login. By selecting Credit Card as the default payment method, it ensures that new clients are required to pay via credit card prior to receiving a booking confirmation. Internal and regular clients can be set to pay on invoice by changing their default payment method in Client Settings. This overrides the default payment method on a per client basis.
TIP: Any client that receives a monthly invoice for their office rental, admin charges etc can be set to Invoice and their charges added to their monthly invoice when importing charges.
TIP: We recommend manually adding all your Clients and Users when setting up Meeting Hub as this allows you to control who pays on Invoice or Credit card. As new users register you can control their payment method for future bookings.
Minimum booking notice period
The notice period required prior to making a booking. It prevents last minute bookings and allows for a minimum notification.
TIP: If you are happy to accept last minute bookings please leave this field as 0.

This section of Meeting Hub is where we map the codes typically used in accounts systems to track revenue.
There are 2 types:
- Account Codes – These are generally General Ledger or GL Codes. These are the codes that when charges are processed within Meeting Hub, the code allocates the charges to the right ‘bucket’ within the accounting software
- Inventory Codes – Some accounting systems allow you to track inventory for perishable or consumable goods; Meeting Hub will tag these items with your preferred codes so you can track these in your accounting system
Tax type: Allows you to set the default tax type that Meeting Hub will allocate against revenue. An example would be for Xero users: GST on Revenue.
This is where you can customize the export format of the Meeting Hub billing file. To navigate to Billing File Mapping Click on My Organisations and scroll to Accounts/Finance.
Within Accounts and Finance scroll down to the heading Billing File Columns. There are 2 columns displayed:
- MH Columns: These are the default column headings in the billing .csv file when exported. When this file is imported into your accounting system, this lets it know where to allocate certain items to. If you do not replace these values in the 2nd column, then these defaults are used
- Organization Columns: These are your preferred column headings that you would like to see in the billing file
At the bottom of the Billing mappings is where you can configure:
Prefix sequence for Refunds: This prefix is appended to the Meeting Hub unique reference to indicate this transaction is a refund or negative (-) value.
Charge amenities at time of booking: If this option is ticked then any amenities such as Tea & Coffee will be charged at time of booking. If you would rather not charge things like projector, until you know whether they are available then tick this box.
