Uphold, the world’s fastest growing cloud-based financial platform, today announces partnership with BookingTeam.com - the leading online booking management collaboration platform for vacation rentals - to instantly improve financial services for online property management. Now, hosts and renters can eliminate fees and add an element of transparency to renting a vacation home using services such as AirBnB.

Bringing the benefits of cloud money to one easy-to-use financial services dashboard, now vacation rental hosts and renters have access to instant and free currency exchange, as well as quick, transparent and efficient booking pay-outs. Hosts and property managers can receive booking payments in one place and send pay-outs via email to anyone worldwide across a range of currencies.* This is the cheapest and easiest option for renters and property owners who are transacting in different currencies. Recipients in the EU & U.S. can easily sweep funds between their Uphold Wallet and their existing bank account.**

“Most hosts and property managers are short on time, and often payments and managing money fall last on a long list of to-dos,” said Edwin Hudepol, Founder and CEO at BookingTeam. “We choose Uphold as our primary financial services platform because their open API was easy to implement and their proprietary technology brings speed, ease and transparency to make our customers’ businesses more efficient and effective so they can focus more on delivering top notch service to their guest.”

“Just as BookingTeam.com brings convenience and improved services to their hosts renting out their property on range of great booking sites like AirBnB, at Uphold we are thrilled to make managing financial services across the online vacation rental industry easier and more transparent. By making money seamless we are bringing innovation into the international travel arena, ” said Robin O’Connell, EVP, Head of Growth & Partnerships.

*Uphold currently supports 29 currencies, 3 cryptocurrencies and four precious metals. Learn more.
