Check Connection

The connection is working if you are not receiving error messages and the display in the channel is correct. If you are receiving error messages check in the "Common Errors" section why you are receiving the error and how to fix it.

Updates

Changes to availability and prices will be instantly sent to the channel. Changes for other settings will send with the next update. Click on "Update" if you want to push them through instantly.

Price Multiplier

If you want to add a multiplier to your prices, for example because of a different currency to your Beds24 currency, add a * followed by the multiplier number to your hotel id.

For example a hotel id setting 123456*12.34 will multiply all prices by 12.34 sent for hotel id 123456.

You can also use currency conversion template variable. All currencies supported by the booking page currency selector can be used.

For example *[CONVERT:IDR-EUR] will convert Indonesian Rupees to Euros.
