Step 3. Create your listing on Booking

If you already had an account with Booking before hiring Stays and now want to create a new listing here, get in touch by email sac@stays.net. Without our team, you will only be able to sync existing listings.

Before creating a listing, you must create your property on Booking. Follow the steps below:

  1. Access [Channel Managers > Booking.com > Listings] menu;
  2. Choose the property you want and click on the [Connect > Create a Booking.com listing] button;

When you have the property created, you will be able to create your listings.

Step 4. Create your Stays listing on Booking

  1. Access [Channel Managers > Booking.com > Listings];
  2. Click on the [Connect to Booking.com] button. Do it for each listing of your property with the [Connect to Booking] button beside;
  3. Go to [Create a Booking.com listing] and choose the type that is more compatible with your listing; 
  4. Wait for the information to be sent to Booking - validation messages are displayed in yellow on the right side of the screen. If you have any questions, see what each status means when creating a listing;
  5. Once the information is sent, your listings go through Booking's validation process. This process usually takes around 1 hour, but the official deadline is up to 24 hours. The listing cannot be published until the contract is signed and you receive confirmation of account opening;
  6. Click [Open Calendar] when this button is green. This means that the listing is ready - when clicked, it will be published.
