Reservations that originated in the channel manager will automatically change to Booking.com reservations. Each reservation number in Guesty will now start with "BC".

3. Apply Markups to the Listings

If relevant, you can apply markups to your listings. This adds a specified amount on top of a listing's nightly rate. Use this to ensure that any booking channel fees are covered. Learn more.
