Add-on Configuration

You can configure each add-on available in the IdoBooking dashboard to be included in the booking submitted by Agoda. Configuring an add-on is simple and only involves deciding how its price should affect the cost of the booking. You have two options to choose from:

  • add to the amount sent to the OTA - in the case of this option, the amount to be paid will be the same as charged from the service
  • add to the amount of the reservation, which will be collected from the OTA - in this option the amount to be paid will be higher by the value of the supplement than the one sent to the service.

If you want to make configuration changes or have questions about synchronization, please contact IdoBooking Sales and Support.
