Summer vacation is almost here, and with the vacation rental market growing to reach an estimated $169.7 billion by 2019, rental managers and hosts are in a unique position with the potential for huge success. An explosive market means managers and hosts must scramble to take advantage of increased traveler volume while simultaneously re-evaluating business strategies to stay competitive.

Enter, is a leading online booking management collaboration platform for vacation rentals and today it announces partnership with Uphold. Through integration with Uphold’s open API, was able to easily build an easy-to-use financial services dashboard. Now, rental managers and hosts can receive booking payments in one place, send pay-outs via email to anyone worldwide across a range of currencies with no currency exchange fees, as well as easily match each pay-out to the corresponding booking inside the BookingTeam platform and reports.

Most hosts and property managers are short on time, and often payments and managing money fall last on a long list of to-dos. 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.

Everyone at is excited to be a part of Uphold’s growing platform and to help bring seamless financial services to the online vacation rental industry.
