Main things to consider before starting the connection
The synchronization with Expedia is only of availability, rates (including mandatory fees and taxes) and bookings. A complete synchronization is currently in development.
Properties are required to already exist on Expedia in order to be synchronized with BookingSync.
There is a delay of +/- 15 days between the connection request and the connection. We recommend that you make the request well in advance.
During the connection, properties need to be placed on stop-sale by Expedia, because any bookings will not be entered onto the calendar on BookingSync. This closed period can last 1-2 days.
We do not manage multiple units, each property on BookingSync must have a counterpart on Expedia with a dedicated line for the rates
Expedia proposes several options for payments: Expedia Collects with virtual credit card (EVC), Expedia Collects with bank transfer (Expedia Pay), Hotel Collects and Expedia Traveler Preference (the guest can choose between Expedia Collects and Hotel Collects). We support all of these payment options.
Payments by credit card, both virtual and real, are processed through the BookingSync payment gateway. It is only possible to process these transactions using the following gateways: Stripe and Ingenico.
Rentals must appear as published in BookingSync.
Prices must be synchronized with Expedia. However, BookingSync can only synchronize 1 rate plan. It means that you can only have 1 rate plan available for connected properties.
The link between the listings must be made in the Expedia application on BookingSync in order to activate the connection with Expedia.
