This is a feature you can use to manage supply from other companies or create supply for the destinations you manage.
Getting the permission to manage subvendors
You need to have a permit to be able to add subvendors. There are two ways for you to get that permit:
- Chat with our support team directly by clicking on the chat icon on your screen.
- Email firstname.lastname@example.org and ask for the subvendor feature to be enabled for your account.
Please note that Bokun charges the same 2.9% per online booking from your subvendors, as it does for your own parent account. The 2.9% for your subvendors is added to the invoice for the parent vendor every month. Here is more information on Bokun's pricing
Once you have the permit to manage subvendors on your account, you can simply follow the instructions below:
