You have 2 options to manage the contract with BookingSync,
You can either tick the Manage Contracts by BookingSync option and the contract will be sent automatically to the guest as soon as you record a first payment and then each time there is a contractual change on the booking.
The "Contract by BookingSync" only exists in English and French and is sent on either of these 2 languages according to the Default communication language -and not the preferred language of the guest- chosen on the next section. If French as default communication language, the contract is sent in french, if any other language chosen then the contract is sent in English.
The rental agreement is included in the contract, according to the Default communication language as well. If the rental agreement is translated in the chosen default communication language then it's included in this language. If the rental agreement is not translated, your default local (English or French) is used.
The layout of the Contract by BookingSync is not editable.
- You can also use our notification center to create a custom contract based on BookingSync information (use the Contract filter to get the same triggers than above). It requires a little more time to set up but allows you to have your own design. In this case, you can tick the Manage Contracts Outside BookingSync to be able to use the online payment feature.
If you already manage your contracts with another system, you can tick Manage Contracts Outside BookingSync.
The contract management (with or outside BookingSync) is mandatory to use online payments.
Here you can define the default settings for your booking.
- Default departure time: is the check-out time
- Default arrival time: is the check-out time
- Default communication language: language used to communicate to the guest in the notification center, contract management and review requests
Note that each of these setting can be overwritten in the booking when you create it.
