Add New Property (Hotel) To Your Account

PCI Booking allows customers to add additional properties (hotels) to their account in PCI Booking in several methods:

  • Via the PCI Booking User's portal (read more)
  • Via the PCI Booking Property Management API (read more)
  • Bulk uploading a list of properties in a CSV (read more)

Once a property is added, in any of the above methods, the following actions will take place:

  • The Property will be in PendingSendInvitation status.
  • The property will receive an activation email, and your status will change to PendingActivation. (The emails will be sent according to the Property's language)
  • When the Property chooses a password, the status will be changed to Active.
  • Based on your chosen implementation (Fully Branded Portal or Branded Card Display Form), you will need to follow our guides on activating and working with the properties:

As an additional option, the property can, once activated with the main user, add more users to the property - each with their own username and password. Each of these users will be set with their own permissions of actions that they can perform on the data for the property.
