Pushing pricing out to listing sites???

Is there anyway to push pricing to VRBO/Homeaway, AirBnb, and Bookings.com. I would like to push the pricing out to these sites across multiple properties(location based) and be able to adjust pricing from the OwnerRez interface vs. having to go to each site (3x25 properties = 75 times). Any suggestions?

Yep, that's our main focus right now! Pushing rates by hand sucks, to push it mildly. We have been turning on direct connections to sites all year.

We're already connected with booking.com (https://www.ownerreservations.com/support/articles/connect-ownerrez-t-booking-com) and TripAdvisor. For either of those, you can go into OwnerRez and create a channel and push out the rates directly to the site automatically from OwnerRez. For booking.com, you can accept bookings directly right into OwnerRez. For TripAdvisor, it's still importing bookings via iCal but we're about to release a direct connection for that as well (ETA a couple of weeks).

We're also almost done with Airbnb rate push via our channel bridge tool -- that'll be out in a couple of weeks too.

For HomeAway and VRBO, we're working with them on a direct integration as we speak. That should be available early in the new year.

Question, how will that work together with PriceLabs or other dynamic pricers? Part of the appeal of these to me, is to let them constantly determine all the best prices for the next few months and have the PMS (OR) push it to all channels. So I don't have to touch them if I don't want.

Dynamic pricers like PriceLabs push their rates into OwnerRez as spot rates, which override any seasonal rates in the system.

All of our channel integrations that push rates use those rates as they push out (optionally with a per-channel percentage adjustment).
