    Hi,
    I have a client who wants integration of Booking Calendar with current site that we develop.

    It looks like your Calendar (Personal version) coud fit his needs but I need to make sure of one thing:

    Client actually has 3 type of rooms (1x single bed room, 2x doube room, 1x 4 bedroom) .

    I am not sure if synchronization with booking.com will be OK, since it has 2x double bed room.
    I saw article on booking.com:
    https://partnerhelp.booking.com/hc/en-gb/articles/115005213509

    “To be able to import or export calendars, you need to have:
    a single-unit property (i.e. sell a maximum of one unit per room type).”

    As in our case we have 2 units of one room type – will it be possible to sync calendar and successfully integrate your calendar in this case as well?

    Final idea is for web visitor to be able to check calendar on client’s web and see if room is already booked (through web site which is synched with booking.com) and of course book it through client web site if unit is available.

    Please let me know if it is possible in our case, when client has two units per room type)
    Thank you in advance

    Kind regards
    Bozidar

    Hello.

    Please note, this forum is only about support of Booking Calendar Free version, so in future please contact about premium versions here https://wpbookingcalendar.com/contact/

    1) Firstly please note this general info. The ability to have independent calendars possible in any paid versions of Booking Calendar.
    Check more here https://wpbookingcalendar.com/overview/#booking-resources

    You can watch video overview about this feature here https://wpbookingcalendar.com/help/multiple-calendars-video-overview-of-booking-resources-in-booking-calendar/

    Please read firstly the general instruction about usage of paid versions of Booking Calendar: https://wpbookingcalendar.com/faq/general-usage-instruction/

    You can create the different booking resources (your properties or services – unique calendars) at the Booking > Resources page and then you be able to insert booking forms for each of your booking resources into the posts or pages. Please read more how to insert and configure the booking shortcode into the post or page here https://wpbookingcalendar.com/help/inserting-booking-form/

    2) Please note, for the “2x doube room” you will be need to have 2 separate booking resources (calendars) in Booking Calendar Personal version.

    So its means like to have 2 separete “a single-unit properties”. You just can isert them into the different pages, or to have 2 forms one under other in the same page. Or to have selections of booking resources (rooms) like in this demo https://bm.wpbookingcalendar.com/select-resource/

    3) Booking Calendar plugin is supporting

    – import of events via .ics feeds from Google Calendar ( or Airbnb or any other calendar that support .ics format, like iCal application)

    – and export bookings to .ics feeds (files), which possible to import in Google Calendar (or Airbnb, Booking.com, HomeAway, TripAdvisor, VRBO, FlipKey and any other calendar that uses .ics format ).

    Please read more about this feature here: https://wpbookingcalendar.com/faq/#sync

    Please note, the import process is working in that case, when some visitor is open your website page with booking import shortcode. So you can configure CRON at your server, for periodically access this page with booking import shortcode to start import process. Or you can insert the import shortcode before booking form shortcode, so firstly system will start import process and only then show booking form, when someone visit your page.

    Export. Booking Calendar is generate .ics feed with bookings in real time. But how often some service (like airbnb, or booking.com ) access this .ics feed to import the bookings from Booking Calendar into own system, does not depend from Booking Calendar. So in other words, Booking Calendar does not force to generate import process by third party service, when some booking is created. You need to check with support of this service (like airbnb or booking.com), about how often they can access the .ics feed tor making import.

    You can test Booking Calendar live demos at this page https://wpbookingcalendar.com/demo/ to be sure in functionality and do not have misunderstanding.
    Kind Regards.
