We've designed Uplisting to be simple to setup and intuitive to use. Saying that, there is a slight learning curve but this message aims to get you off to the right start.
Step 1: Connecting to other booking sites
Hopefully you have imported your listings from Airbnb already. If not, we strongly recommend that you do as it will save you a lot of time. Click here to connect to Airbnb.
Each listing has an individual settings panel where you can do things like set your base prices, edit and turn on automated messages and more. This is also where you connect to booking sites.
Click on your listing name on the Uplisting calendar to open the settings panel. Then go to 'booking sites' to connect.

Step 2: Review and compare
Uplisting effectively takes a mirror copy of the essential information for each listing from Airbnb.
This information includes:
Calendar nightly rates (we can these spot rates)
Unavailabilities (so when you connect to Booking.com, Homeaway etc we have the correct availability)
Listing content such as images & amenities etc.
However, not everything is imported from Airbnb.
What to review:
Minimum length of stay
What to look out for:
Missing unavailable (blocked) date markers
Uplisting does not sync blocked dates caused by connected iCal's you have on your Airbnb listing. We assume that you'll connect these iCal links to Uplisting and don't want to duplicate the unavailable date markers.
Blank rates on the Uplisting calendar
Very rarely we can't retrieve your base prices from Airbnb. This is very easy to fix by entering your own base prices on Uplisting (under the base prices tab on each property's settings panel).
Step 3: Configure
Give your properties nicknames (if you want)
Edit, personalise and turn on automated messages
Set seasonal rates (using the 'update multiple rates')
Set extra guest prices
Set minimum length of stay settings
Step 4: Enable connections to Airbnb and Booking.com
If you have yet to enable the connections to Airbnb and Booking.com you should do that now. If not Uplisting won't sync availabilities and rates.
Go to the 'booking site' tab on each property settings panel and check each connection to Airbnb and Booking.com. If connection is 'locked' then syncing is already enabled.
