Why do I need a Channel Manager?
When you rent your accommodation to guests, it’s hard to keep up with all your calendars and prices on the many websites that you're advertising on. So that's where iPRO’s Channel Manager kicks in. You save your short-term rental information in iPRO and you choose which websites you want to advertise on. iPRO will update your calendars, prices, photos and content on all of these websites, automatically. No more double bookings. No more manual updates.
With our channel manager, you upload your property information ONCE and the information is synchronised automatically with all your chosen sales channels.
A huge time saver!
How does the Channel Manager work?
iPRO is partnered with Rentals United, the leading channel manager on the market. When you save your property information, availability and prices in iPRO, the information is automatically sent to Rentals United and distributed to all your OTAs and listing websites.
When bookings are received on another sales channel, Rentals United will update the other channels and iPRO automatically. Everything stays in sync while you sit back and relax.
With iPRO and Rentals United, you can advertise on many OTAs (such as booking.com and Expedia) to holiday rental websites like Airbnb, HomeAway and even meta searches wholesalers and niche listing websites. Our connections have been awarded as the best-in-class by booking.com (we’re a premier partner) and also by HomeAway and Agoda.
How much does the Channel Manager cost?
The cost of the channel manager varies depending on the number of properties you want to advertise. Prices start from £7.00 per property. This is an extra cost over and above the iPRO booking system subscription. Also, you can connect a smaller number of properties to the channel manager. Or in other words, if you have 50 active properties in your booking system, you could decide to advertise just 30 through the channel manager.
