Please note: You will need your booking.com hotel ID handy for the unit you wish to connect. You will find this in your booking.com extranet.
To connect, go to Settings in ResBook (the gear icon), then select [Portals] and find [Booking.com].
2. Switch the connection to 'Active'
3a. Single property users (Hotels, Motels, B&Bs): leave 'Property manager' option off and enter a single Hotel ID at the top.

6. Scroll to the bottom of the page and click save to save all settings so far. Then click on the Update button and select Rates to update rates to booking.com. Repeat process for minimum stays and then for availability. Once all three updates are done, wait for a few minutes and then check the listing on booking.com to ensure correct sync.
Please note: Always update rates, minimum stays and then availability in this order. Always check your listing before making it live on booking.com. Rates and Minimum stays are not updated automatically, therefore you will need to repeat Step 3.6 every time after you change your rates or minimum stays.
The specials are not supported in the channel integrations and will not be fed through to the channels or channel manager from ResBook. This is meant for direct website bookings only.
