Migrating to new versions

At Booking.com, we want to continuously improve the Connectivity Partner experience. This means we try to build better products and deprecate the older versions. When Booking.com plans to deprecate a feature or a product, you can no longer use it after the communicated date of deprecation. To help facilitate the potential changes you must make, the migration guide tables on this page aim to help you understand what is deprecated and what its (improved) alternative is.

Changes to the Reservations API response

We are rolling out changes to the way the Reservations API calculates and displays the breakdown of the total price for each booking. You can get the changed Reservations API response by enabling the new feature: Payments Clarity Package V2 (payment_clarity_package_v2) once you have completed testing the feature.

The feature is enabled, after prior confirmation, only for providers who manage properties located in a region where Booking.com is obligated to withhold and remit taxes on behalf of the property.
If you have been using the Include Price Details (include_price_details) or the existing Payments Clarity Package (vcc_payment_v2) feature earlier, post enabling the PCP 2.0 feature, you will receive data only from the Payments Clarity Package V2 (payment_clarity_package_v2) feature.

For more information on how to test the feature per request and without enabling for all properties, see Testing Payments Clarity Package v2. To enable the PCP 2.0 feature, contact the Connectivity Support team.

What is Payments Clarity Package v2?

Payments Clarity Package V2 (PCP 2.0) is a new and improved version of the Payments Clarity Package feature with significant changes to the response elements. This feature is relevant only when used along with the Reservations API.

What are the changes?

The response element changes impact both the OTA and the B.XML Reservations API response. This section summarises the changes for each of the response schema.

Summary of B.XML response change

There are three changes to the B.XML response schema:

  • The yes | no values in the extracomponent > included field now specifies:
    • Under <guest>, whether the guest paid the amount for Payments by Booking reservations. For agency bookings, it indicates whether the amount is included in the total amount the guest will pay to the property.
    • Under <hotel>, whether the amount is included in the payout to the property for Payments by Booking reservations. For agency bookings, it indicates whether the amount is included in the total amount that the property should collect from the guest.
  • The total amount is computed based on the above logic and so differs from the existing implementation.
  • For properties where Booking.com is obligated to withhold taxes, the response includes an additional entry for every tax component that Booking.com has to withhold with the value {{Tax_Name}} (Withheld tax) under extracomponent > text.

Summary of OTA response change

There are three changes to the OTA response schema:

  • Introduction of <GuestView> and <HotelView> sections to list the booking amount breakup.
  • The Inclusive | Exclusive values in the Type field now specifies:
    • Under <GuestView>, whether the guest paid the amount for Payments by Booking reservations. For agency bookings, it indicates whether the amount is included in the total amount the guest will pay to the property.
    • Under <HotelView>, whether the amount is included in the payout to the property for Payments by Booking reservations. For agency bookings, it indicates whether the amount is included in the total amount that the property should collect from the guest.
  • The total amount is computed based on the above logic and so differs from the existing implementation.
  • For properties where Booking.com is obligated to withhold taxes, the response includes an additional entry for every tax component that Booking.com has to withhold with the value {{Tax_Name}} (Withheld tax) under Tax > TaxDescription > Text.

Upgrading Payments Clarity Package to PCP 2.0

The following are the changes when migrating the Payments Clarity Package from v1 to v2:

B.XML response changes

By enabling the Payments Clarity Package V2 feature you can expect the following changed behaviour using the Reservations API:

  • guest > extracomponent > included: yes/no : Indicates whether Booking.com collected the specified amount from the guest.
  • hotel > extracomponent > included: yes/no : Indicates whether Booking.com includes the specified amount in the total as owed to the property.

In addition to the extra fields returned by the existing vcc_payment_v2 feature, the response includes an additional entry for every tax component that Booking.com has to withhold with the value {{Tax_Name}} (withheld tax) under the extracomponent field. This specifies whether Booking.com has withheld tax for a reservation for properties where Booking.com is obligated to withhold taxes.

Changes to Include Price Details and Payments Clarity Package v1 behaviour

If you have been validating whether fees, taxes or charges are included in the price when recalculating the reservation prices (with the Include Price Details (include_price_details) or the Payments Clarity Package (vcc_payment_v2) feature turned on), then you must revisit the price calculation as the relevant flags and amounts will change once the new Payments Clarity Package V2 (payment_clarity_package_v2) feature is enabled. Doing this can avoid showing incorrect reservation prices.

Summary of different combinations of included value

The following table captures the intended behaviour of the included field. The value Excluded here denotes included="no"

ScenarioGuest ViewProperty ViewPayments by Booking behaviourAgency Booking behaviour
1ExcludedExcluded- Fees/tax was not collected during the book process.

4IncludedIncluded- Fees/tax was collected from the guest during booking.

- Fees/tax will be collected from guests by the property.

For Reservations API response examples, see B.XML endpoint examples.

OTA response changes

To support showing the pricing breakup between the guest (what was collected from the guest) and the property (what is paid out to the property), we have encapsulated the pricing details within the GuestView and HotelView in the response details:

  • PriceDetails > GuestView > Taxes > Tax > Type: Inclusive/Exclusive: [For bookings where Booking.com handles payments] Indicates whether Booking.com collected the specified amount from the guest.
  • PriceDetails > HotelView > Taxes > Tax > Type: Inclusive/Exclusive: [For bookings where Booking.com handles payments] Indicates whether Booking.com includes the specified amount in the total as owed to the property.
  • RoomStay > <Total AmountAfterTax="10000"> is now changed to show total for the guest and the property as follows:
    • PriceDetails > GuestView > <Total Amount="10000">
    • PriceDetails > HotelView > <Total Amount="10000">

In addition, you also get an additional attribute in the Tax field for every tax component that Booking.com has to withhold with the value {{Tax_Name}} (Withheld tax) under Tax > TaxDescription > Text.

The following table captures the intended behaviour of the Type="Inclusive" or "Exclusive" field.
