How do I set up the Cottages.com integration with SuperControl?

General Information

This integration is a two way API connection.
Meaning from SuperControl we send:

  • Rates > Including discounts & special offers and price uplifts specifically for Cottages.com. 
  • Availability > Weekly and short breaks.

Requirements for the connection to be set up:
The property must have been accepted by Cottages.com beforehand.

When a guest is looking up dates the up-to-date prices and availability will be pulled from your SuperControl account.

Forwarding prices, discounts & uplift

You can either use the prices that Cottages.com are setting up at their end or you can have the prices forwarded from SuperControl to Cottages.com. The same goes for discounts you have set up within SuperControl.
In order to do this you need to go Integrations > Channel manager > International > Cottages.com.

1) set to Enabled > your prices, as set in SuperControl, will be forwarded
2) set to Yes >your discounts, as set up in SuperControl, will be forwarded
3) select the required percentage > the price will be increased by the selected percentage before being forwarded

Getting connected
  1. Contact Cottages.com directly
    Please contact Cottages.com on 0345 268 8717 or send them an e-mail.
    Your property/properties need to be approved by Cottages.com first. 
  2. Once you have the approval from Cottages.com you need to log into your SuperControl account and go to
    Integrations > Channel manager > International > Cottages.com
    Tick the box to enable the property for the connection.


A pop-up will appear asking, if you want to proceed. Click OK

Cottages.com will then enter the Service Code and Unit Code via a special tool we have provided.
They can't access any other data or part of your account

The integration will be effective immediately and remain active as long as the property / properties are live on both sides.

Itemising commission on bookings

Within the Integration page you can enter a commission percentage value in the Commission column . This may be the same for all properties/owner or each property may have a unique value. Your commission amount will be something you discuss and agree with Cottages.com. This function will allow the total rate of your booking to be reflective of what is actually paid/profit after the commission is taken off.


Once you add the commission value in the field and save, this will create an automatic Agent in Admin> Agents the next time you receive a booking from Cottages.com. So when the booking comes in, the commission deduction will be itemized.  

If you are an agency using owners, by default the Cottages.com commission will be deducted before the owner commission is calculated.
