FIRST PART: Connecting WebBookingPro and Booking.com

First you have to connect Booking.com and WebBookingPro by choosing WebBookingPro as your "Connectivity Provider". This step has to be done only once, and requires your action (Request) and our action (Accept).

  1. Log into Booking.com Extranet https://admin.booking.com
  2. For selected Property, from top right choose "Account" and then "Connectivity Provider"
  3. Then find blue "Switch providers" button

5. Follow "Next" steps for completing connection. You have to accept some agreement between you and Booking.com.

We will recieve email imediatelly when you requestion connection. We will accept connection in short period (from minutes to most few hours). After accepting connection all your prices and availability on Booking.com will be erased. You then have to do "SECOND PART" of connecting to Booking.com.

SECOND PART: Mapping Rooms and Rates

Second part consists of Mapping Rooms (or single Property) on WebBookingPro and on Booking.Com, and mapping Rates available on Booking.com with your Rates. This step is required on first connecting, and usually if you do not change Rooms and Rates on Booking.com, you do not have to change Mapping anymore in the future.

Mapping is very important to have correct availability on WebBookingPro and Booking.com.

It is recommended to have same "Room Types" on Booking.Com and WebBookingPro.

If you rent Villa or House for rent or any Property treated as "single property", please name you one and only Room on WebBookingPro as (House, Villa, Apparment) and map this 1 Room on WebBookingPro with Property On Booking.com.

You can have e.g. 5 Rooms of Room type "Double Room". You can define that Booking.com will always have maximum 2 Room available. So if you have 5 rooms available Booking.Com will receive only 2 rooms. If you have 1 room available, Booking.com will receive 1 room.

  1. First you have to create Booking.com connection in WebBookingPro

Go to WebBookingPro admin area, from left menu choose "Hotels Management" - "Hotels Info", and from line where you property is choose "[Settings] under "Channel Manager" column.

If you do not see "Booking.com" under Active Channel Managers, click on blue "Add New" button

From "Channel Manager" dropdown list choose "Booking.com", check "Active" checkbox and click "Create" button.

2. Next step Set your Booking.com Property ID

Go to WebBookingPro admin area, from left menu choose "Hotels Management" - "Hotels Info", and from line where you property is choose "[Settings] under "Channel Manager" column.

From line where is Booking.com connection, under "1st Step" column click on "[Settings]" link.

Under "Hotel ID" enter your Property ID for Booking.com. You can get this number from Booking.com extranet - visible always on the top beside your property name.

Click "Update" when you have done and then on "Back" top right link to return to previous screen.

3. Map Rooms

Go to WebBookingPro admin area, from left menu choose "Hotels Management" - "Hotels Info", and from line where you property is choose "[Settings] under "Channel Manager" column.

From line where is Booking.com connection, under "3rd Step" column click on "[Settings]" link.

For each room type on WebBookingPro please select room on Booking.com. You should connect every room type on WBP with one room type on Booking.com, and there should be no room type on Booking.com not linked with some room type on WBP. This will ensure right connection.

From the right side under columnd "MAX ROOMS" you can define maximum rooms that Booking.com will recieve for each room type.

Click "Save Changes" to confirm and then "Back" to return to pervious screen.

4. Map Rates

Mapping rates is step where you connect Rates on WBP with Rates on Booking.com. In this step it is important you know how your rates are set in WBP - are they based on number of persons or per room.

For setting rates please go to 5. Rates setup.

Booking.com can have multiple "Rates" set. Usually it has always "Standard Rate", some times "Non refundable Rate" or "Flexible Rate".

WBP supports unlimited combinations how to connect each rate on Booking.com with your rates on WBP.

  1. You can have just 1 Rate on WBP and you can connect with each Booking.com Rate by defining Correction based on WBP rate.
  2. You can have multiple rates on WBP and you can connect each rate (that can be completely separate or with correction on Standard Rate) with each Booking.Com rate and again with addition Correction.

Go to WebBookingPro admin area, from left menu choose "Hotels Management" - "Hotels Info", and from line where you property is choose "[Settings] under "Channel Manager" column.

From line where is Booking.com connection, under "4th Step" column click on "[Settings]" link.

My Room will usually be always predefined and cannot be changed. This means for which room type Channel Rate is defined.

From My Rate column you can choose your "Standard" rate or any Additional Rate if defined.

Nr. Adults and Nr. Children. is important. With this numbers you define which Price will be used for selected Rate.

E.g. If you sell your room per room or property as whole property - where number of people is not important, you can set any number here, but if you have rates that are based on number of persons (e.g. for rates with breakfast or dinner) and you have set in your rates different rates for different number of persons (as in screenshot below)

Then we suggest you to use correct combination of adults and children for each rate.

Corection Column and Factor Column will give you ability to change this price before sending to Booking.com.

Correction is FIXED amound added or removed from Base Price (it can be positivie or negative).

Factor is Number that MULTIPLES (BASE PRICE +/- CORRECTION). It should be 1 if you do not use it! Setting 0 will send 0 as final price.

For example if your base price is 100 and you have correction +20 and factor 0.14 your final price will be

(100 + 20)x0.14 = 16.80 . With factor you can correct different currency of Booking.com rate and your Standard rate currency. Also with factor you can define changes in +/-%. E.g. For rising prices for 5% use 1.05 as Factor. For decreasing prices for 5% use 0.95 as Factor.

Again on end click on "Save Changes" and Back top right link to return to previous Screen.

5. Final Step - doing sync of availability and Rates.

Before final sync with Booking.com please check your availability for each room type - Updating Inventory Availability

and Rates - 5. Rates setup

When you are ready click on "[Full Refresh]" link under "5th Step". Wait for half a minute and then go to Extranet of Booking.com and Check every room type for its availability and rate. Check if everying is OK. Is something is not ok, you can correct Mapping and do "Full Refresh" again, or you can go to Availablitly for each room type and correct. When saving Availability from now on it will be automatically sync with Booking.com. 

Doing changes in Rates for each room type will not automatically sent prices to Booking.com but you can do it easily with "Upate Channel Rate" button on the bottom of [Prices] screen for each room type.
