  2. The listing should be single-unit property (e.g apartment) or a one-type multi-unit property (e.g Hotel/Hostel). Multi-unit complexes cannot be linked to Guesty at the moment*.
  3. If you are using Guesty as your payment processor (Stripe) to collect credit card payments: contact Booking.com support/ account manager and ask them for Required CVC setting to be turned On. Doing this will allow you to receive your guests' credit card details, which are mandatory for collecting payment within Guesty.

*Guesty will enable this functionality in the future.

Import upcoming reservations that were created prior to the integration

Booking.com reservations with a check-in/check-out date in the future will be imported automatically to Guesty upon linking a listing. 

The guest's email and phone number will not be available in Guesty (only for reservations that were created prior to the integration!). If a guest sends a message, it will be reflected in the Guesty inbox. To answer the guest's message, you will have to update the guest's email/ phone number in Guesty, which can be found at the Reservation page in Booking.com dashboard.

If you are switching from Rentals United to Guesty - Booking.com direct integration, the guest's contact details (email & phone number) will be imported automatically.
