Cloudbeds: Connection, Features & Limitations

How to connect Akin and Cloudbeds, features & limitations

Connecting Akin and Cloudbeds

Step 1: Go to the Listings page in Akin, navigate to the "Stays" module and click on the "Setup Cloudbeds"button. This will take you to your Cloudbeds page, where you will be prompted to approve the connection between Akin and Cloudbeds.
Step 2: Click on the "Approve" button to establish the connection.


Once you give permission to Cloudbeds to start sending data to Akin, you will get re-directed to the Akin dashboard.


Features of the integration:

With this integration you can get the following options: 

  1. Getting reservation information. 

  2. Getting room type availability (so guests only see the rooms that are available). 

    If a guest processes a reservation through Akin, the reservation will automatically be created in Cloudbeds.


Current Limitations:

  • Cloudbeds does not support Add-Ons via API so Cloudbeds Items will not be bookable by the guest on the booking engine.

2-Way services will be available only if Items don't have Fees & Taxes or if they're inclusive (if they're exclusive, they still can be mapped but services will fall back to 1-way when the guest requests them, so you will then have to manually approve them)


Disabling the connection:

Go to the Listings page of Akin, navigate to the "Stays" section and switch off the Cloudbeds connection and click on Confirm when prompted to confirm this action.
