Hello! 

Booking.com recently made some changes to the platform to attract more hosts willing to list their property on the site.  Is it possible update the API integration instructions as to whether Booking.com will be collecting taxes on the hosts' behalf and how to view the CVV code for credit card processing?  According to the booking.com partner guide, the CVV code can only be viewed 3 times on the website under the guest reservation for security purposes.  It will not be automatically sent to Ownerrez for payment processing  even after sending the request to booking.com.  With this, how will ownerrez be able to automatically charge guests for the booking?  

 

Do you think Ownerrez would be able to invite someone from Booking.com to go over an integration demo in the near future?

Thanks!

Carol

Unfortunately, we've never managed to find anyone at Booking.com to have the direct relationship with us that we have with several other channels, so, I'm afraid there's no way to do that.  Hopefully someday!

And, we have not received any new documentation from Booking.com as to these changes, so we aren't able to do much about them yet.  We're watching out for it though.
