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. In some cases, that means verifying your property’s location first. 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 info is complete, you can change its status to open/bookable by clicking Make my property live on the Extranet.
When will I start receiving bookings?
Every reservation a guest makes on our platform is confirmed instantly, so you can start receiving bookings as soon as you set your property status to open/bookable. Remember, you don’t have the option to accept or reject 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 under the Extranet’s Reservations tab, and the Pulse app’s Bookings tab.
