Creating a New Reservation Source

Have more questions? Submit a request
Each reservation that comes into Guesty requires a source. The following sources are added automatically and cannot be altered or removed:
  • Booking channel, e.g. Airbnb or Vrbo
  • Guesty Booking Engine: Source code "Booking Engine"
  • Guesty Booking Engine API: Source code "BE API"
Reservations that are created manually in Guesty default to the source code "Manual"
  • The source code should be changed at the time of creation for accurate reporting. 
  • The source code cannot be altered or removed after the reservation is created.
  • You can either choose an existing source from the list of available sources or enter a new source manually.
To create a new reservations source for manual bookings, follow the steps below.


Step by step:

  1. Sign in to your Guesty account.
  2. In the top menu, click Multi-calendar.
  3. Click and drag your cursor across the relevant dates.
  4. At the bottom of the sidebar on the right, click +New reservation.
  5. Scroll to the bottom of the sidebar and click Channel & Status.
  6. In the text box under "Channel", enter the new source name.
  7. Click {new source name} (new).
  8. Finish creating the reservation.
  9. At the bottom of the sidebar, click Book reservation
The new source will be added to the list of available sources, which is ordered from the newest source, most recently added, to the oldest source. If at any point, there are no more existing reservations from manual source X, it will no longer appear in the list of sources.
