Step 1: In the booking.com app, go to "Add Listing," select property to add to booking.com.
Step 2: After adding the listing, users will be presented with two options in a pop up window
Step 2a. Select this option if the listing has never been on booking.com before and needs to be created using the MyVR property data.
Step 2b. Contact MyVR Support to confirm that you created new listings in Booking.com. The Support team will work with Booking.com to push this property data onto Booking.com
MyVR Support will communicate with you on the status of those listings and tell you when they are live.
Step 2c: Select this option if a listing exists on booking.com or was built in booking.com. You'll need that listings Hotel ID from booking.com.
Step 3: (Only eligible for Existing Listings), add the Booking.com Hotel ID and click "Link Existing." It's important to add the correct hotel ID here. If the incorrect one is added, contact MyVR support immediately.
Hotel ID can be found in https://admin.booking.com/ in the right-hand navigation in the Properties drop-down.
Step 4: From your Booking.com account (https://admin.booking.com), click on your property ID, then complete the following steps outlined in the Booking.com Help Center here, https://partner.booking.com/en-us/help/channel-manager/how-can-i-connect-channel-manager to request MyVR as the channel manager for each property;
Pro Tip: If you have more than 20 properties, you can contact MyVR support to request a "Bulk Switch" from Booking.com. A bulk switch is where Booking.com does the channel manager selection steps on your behalf. However, you will need to enable MyVR as a channel manager on at least one property in your account first, so that booking.com has the permissions they need to go forward with the rest. The turnaround times on this process vary.
The connection will be successful if you receive an email in your https://admin.booking.com inbox.
From https://admin.booking.com, finalize the connection by going to the property, then the property's inbox, and clicking on a link in the Booking.com extranet inbox.
Note: If the Hotel ID was entered into MyVR incorrectly, please open a support request with the correct Hotel ID and the name of the MyVR property and our support team can correct the ID.
