    Are we able to offer on-line rentals WITHOUT the option of a reservations tab?  Or is it all or nothing?

    Hi @i43storage, with this new feature you can have just Reservations ....or both Reservations and Rentals. Would that work for you?

    If you wanted just online Rentals, your best bet is the SiteLink API––call customer support if you'd like to learn more about API integrations.

    Looks like that is easier said than done.  Reply from Sitelink API:

    "The free Web Template will now allow for reservations as well as move ins, but in order to allow online move in's only, you would need to hire a web developer to integrate with our API.  This requires extensive knowledge of SOAP XML webservices and website security as your site would need to be build from scratch.  We do have integrators that can currently do this if you do not have a web developer in mind.  They can be found on our partners page here.  Please let me know if you have any questions."


    Disappointing that the two cannot be separated.  Seems like an easy fix to simply separate the two.

    Does anyone have any clarification on this. I want to add On Line Rentals.

    Hi @JulieA, I can help you a little bit on this...do you have your own website or do you use the SiteLinkStore free website?

    Also, for more info on how to set up this feature, check out our training video on Online Move Ins.

    We have our own website.

    Great! Since you already have your own website, the SiteLink Web Template is the way to go. Enable online move ins in Corporate Control (Web Template Setup > Web Template eCommerce Gateway > Online Move-Ins). You will need to be using eSign and there are other requirements, you'll see those when you enable the process. Enabling the checkboxes doesn't change your own website, it works as a redirect from your website to the Web Template. Your best bet is to reach out to Customer Support for more clarification on that.

    You'll be glad you did it once it's done! The Web Template is free and maintained by SiteLink. All rentals are synced with SiteLink in real-time and inventory updated on the store’s website.

    Good luck and keep us posted, I'd love to hear how it works out!

    Thanks Sue- could you direct me to some customer websites that are utilizing this feature so I can see how it actually works on the user end?  Julie
