Tap on the message to view the details, and then tap Create Quote. Create the payment request by entering the rental details and total cost. Once you complete the invoice, tap Send Quote.
Setting your notification preferences
We’ll alert you with a notification for any traveler activity that you’ve received to your FlipKey account. A notification can include a new inquiry, booking request, or message from a traveler or a recently paid reservation.
If you have push notifications turned off on your iPhone or iPod Touch, you will not receive notifications or alerts about new traveler messages or payments on FlipKey. You can easily adjust your notifications on your device settings.
For Android users, your settings will display by clicking the menu button and then Settings on your device.
All U.S and Canadian citizens can also sign up for SMS alerts to notify you when you’ve received an inquiry or a payment. Learn more about setting up text message alerts.
Searching for a specific message or reservation
Although you cannot search for a specific message or guest, you can use the filters to narrow down your results. Tap on Filter to sort the reservations results by All, Payments, or Messages Only.
For iOS users, once you set the filter, tap Filter again or tap outside the filter box to view the results. If you have more than one property, you can also filter by each property.
For Android users, once you set the filter, tap the back arrow to view the results. If you have more than one property, you can also filter by each property.

You’ll be able to mark a single night or multiple night stay; check-in and check-out days will display as half days. The blue arrows at the top of the screen allow you to switch the month. Find the month you’d like to mark and tap the blue Edit button on the top. Tap each date to change its availability, and tap Save when you are finished.
