How to set your property status to open/bookable
You’ll need to complete your registration before you can set your property status to open/bookable, and in some cases that means first verifying your property’s location. You should also make sure you’ve:
- Added and arranged photos of your property
- Reviewed your facilities and room amenities
- Checked your property description for accuracy
- Loaded enough availability in your calendar
- Added rates for the rooms or units you’ve made available
- Previewed your property page as it will appear on our platform
Once your property’s information is complete, you can change its status to open/bookable by clicking Make my property live in the extranet.
When will I start receiving bookings?
Every reservation a guest makes on our platform is instantly confirmed, so you can start receiving bookings as soon as you set your property status to open/bookable. Keep in mind that you don’t have the option of accepting or rejecting a booking once it’s made. That’s why it’s important that you load your availability correctly before you set your property status to open/bookable.
Whenever you get a new booking, you’ll receive a confirmation email, plus a notification on the Pulse app if you use it. We’ll also send the guest a confirmation email and update your availability on our platform. You can see all your booking details in the Reservations tab in the extranet, as well the Bookings tab on the Pulse app.
