To help you to a smooth change we have collected FAQ’s on how to get started with BookingButton:

How do I upgrade to the new BookingButton?

In order to get the new BookingButton you need to sign up for this in your Extranet. You can do that by accessing your ‘Marketplace’ or ‘App Store’ tab once logged in to your Extranet. In that tab you will find a product tile with the title ‘BookingButton’. When clicking on the product tile you will see a pop-up menu in which you can start the sign-up process. Please note, that this upgrade does not happen automatically. 

Bookings you receive through the new BookingButton are commission free. You only pay your fixed monthly subscription fee.

How can I manage the new BookingButton and its settings?

The new BookingButton has its very own BackOffice in which you can customize the design, track your booking statistics and add new languages. After signing up successfully you can login to the BookingButton BackOffice through the ‘Marketplace’ or ‘App Store’ tab in your Extranet by clicking on the ‘BookingButton’ product tile through which you signed up.

Are my existing reservations affected if I change to the new BookingButton?

No. Removing the old booking button and replacing it with the new one, will not affect the existing reservations.  

How can I delete my old button?

Before you can setup the new BookingButton you need to remove the old button first.

In order to delete your old booking button, you simply need to remove the code from the website on which you implemented the button.
