There are two ways that Host Tools supports direct booking.
We integrate directly with Houfy.com, a totally free direct booking site. Houfy allows you to easily import your listing from Airbnb, VRBO, or Vacationrentals.com including photos and reviews. Houfy is connected with both Square and Stripe for payment processing. Check out their site to learn more. Host Tools integrates directly with Houfy so all Host Tools features (managing calendar pricing and availability, automatically sending messages, and more) can be used with your direct booking listing on their site.
