If you have listings present on BookingSync that are not yet on Expedia, you can automatically create them on Expedia by pushing your properties via the Expedia app of your BookingSync account, allowing you to save time by not having to create your listings twice.

When you push a new rental to Expedia, it creates a new property with a new room (listing). You cannot push a new rental as a new room under the same property via our UI. This feature will be available soon. If you need to push several rentals as rooms under the same property, please create the first rental and contact our customer care team via a ticket (Subject: Channels > Expedia > New connection), with the list of BookingSync ID you want to push and the Expedia ID of the first rental pushed.
