Your Stays.net calendar must be completely updated, as it is the distribution base for all sales channels. Some changes can be necessary before proceeding with the connection - check the calendar's behavior according to the type of reservation:
Reservations via Airbnb, Booking and Expedia
For reservations via Airbnb, the calendar imports current reservations, future reservations and history of up to one year. For Booking, future reservations are imported during the listing's connection process with Stays.
For Expedia, the importation of these future reservations are also possible if they follow these conditions:
- The reservation was not previously notified by email;
- The reservation was not previously synced by another channel manager.
Reservations via partners and other sales channels
If your partners have compatible calendars to send information, it is possible to receive reservations from an iCal connection. In this process, reservations arrive as blocks and you are able to modify them into reservations via Stays calendar. Learn how to modify blocks into reservations.
It is common to have partners with a volume of reservations made directly with guests (not via sales channels) or some events that prevent reservations, such as maintenance or owners block. In this case, it is necessary to enter information manually on the Stays calendar before proceeding with the connections.
With Airbnb connection, reservations in progress do not get into calendars during the connection, however remember to add them manually in the listings on other sales channels.
