How does it work?

Booking.com tailors opportunities specifically for a property. The API allows STAAH to retrieve data and provide an option for property to action them quickly in a few simple clicks/ steps via channel manager extranet.

Example:




‘Take Me There’ Button
  1. If it is something you can action/ setup via channel manager, on clicking button you will be diverted to module in channel manager. Example creating a business rate via OTA Promotions module.
  2. If it is something that you need to action via extranet, you will be diverted to booking.com login page


‘Maybe Later’ Button
  1. You are not interested in the opportunity
  2. Click on button to remove from list
