Setup

Hostel International

Forward the following information to [email protected]:

Hostel Name

Hostel Interface Id: Your Beds24 property ID

Product (room) Ids: Beds24 room IDs you want to synchronise and the corresponding HostelInternational room IDs.

Beds24

  • Tick "Inventory", "Prices" and "Bookings".

Price Multiplier

If you want to add a multiplier to your prices, for example because the channel requires 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*1.23 will multiply all prices by 1.23 sent for hotel id 123456. (i.e. raised by 23%) Lower prices can be sent with a multiplier less than 1, i.e. 123456*0.85 will send a price 85% of the normal price (i.e. lowered by 15%)

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.

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.
