How to Create a Credit Key

Here at buuteeq, we value and protect your privacy and your guests’ personal information. As a result, we are increasing security measures around how your guests' credit card information is stored and accessed by BackOffice users. All BackOffice users must have their own Credit Key to access credit card details.

A Credit Key is a password used to view credit card details. 

Important Note: For the security of your guests, BackOffice only stores the 3-4 digit Security Code (CVV/CVV2) for 7 days after a reservation has been created. The remaining credit card details are stored for up to 3 days after the arrival date on the reservation. 

Each BackOffice Property only has one Credit Key Admin. A Credit Key Admin is responsible for changing and managing their own Credit Key and that of other Users. 

Here's how to create a Credit Key as Credit Key Admin:

  1. Go to Settings > Users > select Manage Credit Key 
  2. A message will ask you to create Credit Key. If this option is not available to you, then the system will provide you with the email address of the Credit Key Administrator, whom you will need to contact for access.  
  3. Select CREATE MY CREDIT KEY
  4. For security purposes your Credit Key must meet the following guidelines:
    • 7 characters or longer 
    • A combination of letters and numbers
    • Different from your BackOffice password 
    • Different from your previous Credit Keys
  5. Click Submit  

How to Assign Credit Card Access to other BackOffice Users:

Each user in BackOffice will need to have their own Credit Key to access credit card information. This is will ensure that your guests' information is safe and secure.

Before you can assign an employee a Credit Key in BackOffice, they will need to already have access to BackOffice or have a User role created for them.

To assign Credit Key access:

  1. Go to Settings > Users > select Manage Credit Key 
  2. Enter your Credit Key and click Submit 
  3. Select the Users who have access to guest credit card details 
  4. You can also unblock Credit Key Access for other users, in the event a BackOffice user has too many incorrect password attempts to access the credit card details. 
  5. Click Save 
  6. Click  to close the window 

If the Credit Key Admin is incorrect. Please contact the buuteeq Customer Success Team at 1-800-734-1769 to update this information.
