From Effective Tours Documentation
Jump to navigation Jump to search

By now your property must be set and ready to connect with a Channel Manager.
Channel Manager takes all the data entered in to the Effective Tours and distributes it across the platforms you are connected with.
It is extremely important to enter ALL the bookings(bookings from and Agoda will be entered automatically when connected) in to the Effective Tours agenda.
Currently we support full two-way integration (rate and availability control) with:
- Airbnb (two ways inventory only)

Channel Manager is active by default, simply read the next article Activating_Channel_Manager to continue.
