Integrating Mews with YourWelcome

YourWelcome has always been a powerful tool to help your guests learn about your home and local area; but you can unlock a host of new opportunities by linking to your calendar and importing your reservations.

Connect Account

There are 2 ways to reach the connected accounts page on the YourWelcome dashboard. You can either select the “My Account” option from the left sidebar and then choose “Connected Services” or click on the account menu (in the top right of the dashboard) and select it from there.

Find Mews in the list, then click “Connect”.

This will bring up a pop-up which will ask you to enter a name to help identify the connection (We recommend “YourWelcome-Mews”) and an Access Token.

In your Mews portal click the menu item in the top left.

Now select the Marketplace option and search for YourWelcome under the Guest Technology section. Choose the ‘Show More’ under our tile and on the pop-up click ‘Connect’.

Sync Properties

After you’ve authorised the connection you will be returned to the YourWelcome dashboard where the next step is to sync your Mews property listings to the properties in YourWelcome. This allows us to know which bookings in Mews to allocate to which properties on YourWelcome. You have two options here; you can search-for and select an existing property, or you can create a new property using the address stored in the Mews listing.

Listings are on the left, the column on the right is where you’ll see any properties that you have synced.

To sync a new property, find the address/listing that you want to link and then tap the ‘Sync’ button in the right-hand column.

At this stage you can either search for an existing property (recommended for hosts with existing properties), or skip the search and create a new property (recommended for first-time users).

If you have searched for an address, the results will show in a list below. Select the correct address by clicking “Select Address”.

All that’s left to do is tap the “Sync {{{Address}}]” button, which will connect the bookings calendar of the Mews listing to the bookings Calendar in YourWelcome for that property.

That’s it, you’re all set. If you experience any issues with connecting your account please get in touch with your account manager or email support@yourwelcome.com
