Hi everyone, Max here from bookusdirect.
We've just released exciting new features and product improvements on your direct booking link and host dashboard. Here's a highlight:
Read on to discover the new features and improvements 👉
Grow your earnings with add-ons
You can now create optional add-ons guests can select when completing their direct booking with you. Offering tailored add-ons such as a late check-out or breakfast basket option is a great way to provide a more personalized experience to your guests and grow your earnings per booking.
Contact us here and get add-ons set up for your property now.
This new feature allows you to easily collect online payments from your guests after the booking is confirmed. You could for example use payment links if:
A last-minute guest is added to a booking and you need to collect payment of an extra guest fee
A booking is extended and you need to collect payment for the additional nights
You offer a selection of services guests can choose from and need to collect payment for them
To get a payment link, simply head over to your dashboard, and hit the Get a payment link button.
Manage your calendar from your phone
With our latest dashboard improvements you can now manage your calendar and perform these operations straight from your phone:
View your availability and occupancy throughout the year
Block dates to prevent bookings to be made at certain periods
Adjust your rates to increase or reduce your base rate for certain periods
Access the details of any booking by simply clicking on a booking from your calendar
Easily find amenities using the new search function
We've added search functionality in the amenities section of your property allowing you to easily find the amenities you're looking for. You can search for an amenity in particular or an amenity category.
We hope you'll enjoy this new set of features and improvements and as usual, feel free to share with us what you'd like to see us work on next by accessing your dashboard from your phone or laptop and hitting the Give feedback button.
Thank you for being part of the movement!
