How to connect Airbnb?

0- Preliminary Conditions:

- First you have to get an AirBnb account! (you can not create it from WuBook..)

- And you have to ensure that the Tabla in WuBook is correctly fulfilled with correct price, restrictions and availability*, because directly after first connection the extranet of Booking.com will be overwritted with the values in the Tabla.

*Note regarding "availability": With the channel Airbnb (like for the channel Booking.com), we have possibility to download the previous reservation already present in the extranet. So, to get correct availability in the Tabla, ideally you have to enter all reservations that are NOT from Airbnb (or Booking), and then, after first connection, you will have possibility to import all reservations from Airbnb. And so, you will get in the Tabla of WuBook, the real availability.

Attention! For the correct configuration of this channel, you need to activate the function Instant Book directly on the Airbnb extranet, otherwise reservations will not be imported! This is because the channel manager imports confirmed reservations only and not those pending confirmation. So, please select Instant Book on airbnb. 

Once the preliminary conditions are fulfilled, the process is the following:

1- Select AirBnb in the list of available channels,from WOODOO / Channels / New Channels

In this page, you can look for the channeland then click on "+" to add it

Then, in the Cart that appear, you have to accept conditions and click on "Add these channels".

 

 

2- Enter your credentials, from WOODOO / Channels / My Channels,

You have to click on the name of the channel:

And in the configuration page, you have to enter your email and the password you use to enter in Airbnb extranet and then click on "Configure":

  

3- Configure the channel

You will have to Logout and Login again in order to update the WuBook extranet: 

Once you go back to WOODOO / Channels / My Channels, and you click on Booking.com, to enter in the configuration page, you should see a button "Ready to configure Booking.com"

Click on that button. (if you don't see this button, please wait few minutes and do logout / login again)

Then, you have to click on "Configure" and confirm "Yes , i want to reconfigure"

At that moment the system will download the list of your rooms and the list of your rates.

You will have to proceed with the "Rooms Association":

Note: If you don't want to associate a room (no update will be sent), then you have to tick the corresponding box in the column "Disabled".

And then, you will have to associate the rate plan in the Preferences. And "Save"

And finally, you have to save the "Preferences", at the bottom of the page. 

If you saved everything correctly, you should see from WOODOO / Channels, that the gears are running:

 When you see the gears running, it means that the communication is OK:

- You will receive reservations from AirBnb

- The extranet of AirBnb is updated with the values of the Tabla from WuBook.

The AirBnb channel has been developed in screen scraping.

Attention! For the correct configuration of this channel, you need to activate the function Instant Book directly on the Airbnb extranet, otherwise reservations will not be imported! This is because the channel manager imports confirmed reservations only and not those pending confirmation. So, please select Instant Book on airbnb.

Note: Only prices, availability and closure are managed through the channel manager. Restrictions such as minimum stay have to be managed from Airbnb (they accept only one value for the whole year). 

Note: Credit Cards are not imported with the reservation.
