Payment Declines: How to re-run Credit Cards on Reservations

What do I do if one of my guest's payments fail? How do I re-run payment to collect for the outstanding balance in Dockwa?

To re-run the payment on the failed transaction, confirm with the guest their card info on file is up to date, once the card on file is correct and attached to the reservation click the "Settle" button on the failed transaction to attempt to reprocess the payment due.
