Signing up to sell on Visit Somerset. 

If you already have a Staylist account then you don’t need to do anything else. You’re connected to Visit Somerset and ready to go. 

If you use Eviivo then simply log into your Eviivo account, go to Settings > Channels > Opt Ins and select Staylists. Then, email and we’ll download your account, including content and you’re good to go.
If you use one of the above PMS’ or channel managers then just follow the below steps: 
1. Sign up for a Staylists account via this link
1. Set up a Direct Debit. 
Click Staylists from the top menu of your account, then invoicing>billing details>Confirm billing details>Add payment method. The Direct Debit will be used to collect commissions owed for reservations made via the Staylists platform. You will be invoiced on the last day of the month for reservations that stayed within that month. The commissions owed will be charged 7 days later.
2. Connect to your Channel Manager or Property Management System
If you are a SuperControl user skip the following steps and refer to this guide.
If you use any other channel manager please follow the steps below:
Before we can connect to your Channel Manager, you will need to setup your accommodation and rate types. 
Click Accommodation from the top menu then Create Accommodation to add your rooms. You must name your rooms exactly as they appear in your Channel Manager.
Next, select galleries from the list on the left hand side, and add images of your property. These will appear during the booking process.
Next, click Prices from the top menu and then the Rate Types tab. Again, you will need to create rate types to match those in your Channel Manager. For example, if you have a Bed and Breakfast Rate type and a Room Only Rate type, you'll need to set them both up within Staylists too. 
Once the rate types are created click the Cancel Policies tab, and set up your cancellation policies that you'd like to apply to bookings made via the Staylist platform. 
The final step is to connect your Staylist account to your Channel Manager, which will synchronise the prices and availability, meaning they'll automatically be updated within Staylists every time that they change within your Channel Manager.
To connect Staylists to Siteminder, please follow this guide.
To connect Staylists to Guestline, please follow this guide.
To connect Staylists to GuestCentric, High Level Software, Hotel Perfect, The Booking Button or Avvio, please follow this guide
Once the mapping is complete, let us know and we’ll complete a test booking. 
At this point the Staylists account is now live.
If you need help with this, please let us know and we'll point you in the right direction. 
My Channel Manager or PMS  isn't listed above - what can I do?
If you can’t see your PMS on the above list, or don’t use a PMS to sell online but still want to sell with Visit Somerset, then please email and we’ll be more than happy to help.
