publish a new house without connecting to a Channel Manager


Hi everyone!

I just finished updating my booking.com profile and added my beach house, with all pics, descriptions and features. When I want to publish the house on booking, I see the publish button is not active (color grey), and looks like I have to connect my property to a Channel Manager, which I don't use, as it is my first property to be published and Booking is the first channel I use. 

Would it be possible to publish my property without connecting to a Channel Manager? 

Some owners told me its weird because they have their properties published but never were forced to connect their account to a channel manager. Do you think I should change something in my profile in order to be able to publish my property?

See below the picture of the screen where I cannot hit the publish button. It's in Spanish, but I think it's quite clear for everyone...

Thanks a lot for your help!

I'd like share these articles which may be useful to you in this case:

2. How can I easily set up my property?
