March 03rd - Airbnb PRO - Full Listings description import

For those of you using our Airbnb PRO connection, we will now be importing full listings description to Hostaway that is included in what Airbnb calls "the space" and will automatically populate the description fields of HomeAway and Booking.com under Listings > Channel Specific in the Hostaway Dashboard. This will save you time having to otherwise manually add the descriptions in the fields.

February 20th - WordPress plugin- guest billing address added to payment module

To help you have full reservation information and avoid chargebacks we have upgraded our WordPress plugin payment form to include a checkout module that will ask the guest for a full Billing Address. This is also available in the checkout form of our Booking Engine and Direct Reservation modules.

30th January - Cross Listings now supports iCals

  • We have added support to use reservation iCals with Cross Listings. This means that if you have Cross Listings relationship where one of the linked listings has iCal reservations, we now take these into account and block the listings that are linked to it. This works with the parent-child/child-parent relationship.

27th January - Apply AutoTasks to existing reservations

  • You can now create an AutoTask and apply it to existing reservations.

January 23rd - House Rules in the Booking Engine

  • We have swapped House rules and Description's position in the booking engine Before. House rules were shown before Description, which was causing some confusion for guests.

January 23rd - Worpress Payment Module

  • We have added guest billing details to the Wordpress plugin payment module. This enhances credit card transaction security and it will help you against possible chargebacks and fraud. This data is passed to Stripe and Braintree and it is used by their risk assessment teams.
