The Homey booking system is able to manage two types of reservations:

  1. Request to book
  2. Instant booking

In the first case, a user makes a reservation request and the listing author (Host) must confirm the reservation request. After the reservation is confirmed, the user will receive a confirmation notification and can proceed with payment of the reservation.

In the second case, if your listing is set for instant booking and the reservation dates that the user has selected are available, the user can automatically continue to pay the reservation and at that point, the reservation is confirmed.

Please note: by default, Homey is set to accept reservation requests that the listing authors must confirm.

Request to book

Once the reservation request has been sent, the author of the listing (the Host) will receive an email notification and from the Reservations section, he can confirm or decline the reservation.

By clicking Confirm, the host will see first the reservation details and after that, he can confirm or decline the reservation.

After the host has confirmed the reservation, the user will receive an email notification that will redirect him to the reservation section to proceed to the payment by clicking on Pay Now.

After clicking Pay Now the user will be redirected to the page here below where he can select the payment method (PayPal or Stripe) and complete the payment.
