  1. charges commissions of 15% - 17% and bills the property manager directly each month.

  2. Lodgix will assess an additional 2% commission, which will be billed to the credit card on file at Lodgix, once per month, for all reservations that checked in during the prior month. This commission is calculated off the original invoice generated in Lodgix, and only is assessed against the nightly rate setup in Lodgix. Fees, taxes, etc are not utilized when calculating the 2% fee. Lodgix commissions are not adjusted when an invoice is changed post booking.

  3. will not allow reservation cancellations by the property manager, only the guest can cancel. Canceling a invoice on Lodgix will not cancel that booking on will still bill you for the booking, even though it has been canceled on Lodgix. Only the guest can cancel a reservation and they must do it from within

  4. does not collect guest address data , the guest email or the credit card security code (CVC) by default. You must contact and ask them to make the guest email, the guest address and the guest credit card security code mandatory fields for all bookings. This is an important step. Failure to make those fields mandatory will result in bookings not being transferred to Lodgix which could result in double bookings.

  5. does NOT dynamically query the Lodgix API to generate guest quotes. As a result Lodgix cannot send tax, deposit or fee data to We can only send rate and availability data to them. Therefore it is the responsibility of the property manager to setup the correct taxes and fees for each property on

  6. Guests can change the dates of their stay on   Those dates changes DO NOT flow through to Lodgix.   An email will be sent to you outlining the property, the guest and the date changes.  It is your responsibility to make the changes on the Lodgix invoice.

** Using the two way sync  Lodgix will create an invoice on Lodgix from any bookings that originate on However that invoice will reflect all of the rates, fees, taxes, etc.. that exist on Lodgix and ignore what was quoted on IT IS YOUR RESPONSIBILITY TO ADJUST THE INVOICE TOTALS ON YOUR LODGIX.COM INVOICE TO MATCH THE INVOICE TOTALS FROM BOOKING.COM. **


Lodgix will ONLY build listings on   This means that all of the content for each of your properties on Lodgix will overwrite any data on your current listings.

The sync is a two way sync. Any reservation created on Lodgix will block off those dates on and any bookings created on will create invoices on Lodgix (however as noted in a previous step, the Lodgix invoices will not match up with invoices.)

Here is the url to the extranet:

For vacation rental owners and mangers, it makes the most sense to setup each property as a separate extranet. can consolidate all accounts under one "master login".

Lodgix + NextPax =

Lodgix has partnered with, to liaison with NextPax is a channel manager. 

If you are new to, you can register here: 

Step #1: Enable the Integration Within Lodgix

To enable the integration, please go to Settings > Channel Management > Integrations.

Select the NextPax tab and turn on the feed. Once the feed is enabled, the terms and conditions will be displayed in a separate window.

Click the Settings button...

Configure your Channel Commission and Rates Export Period...

Commission: Enter a commission percentage to pass through to owners for bookings that originate through (optional). More information here.

Step #2: Map Property IDs to Lodgix Property IDs

Enter your property ID. Every property must have a unique ID.

THIS STEP IS VERY IMPORTANT. NextPax will not accept the connection to until the IDs have been setup.

Where are my property IDs?

For those that have each property setup on a separate extranet, the ID will be displayed on the very first page after logging into

Step #3: Enable the NextPax - Lodgix Feed within

The setup documentation from for the Lodgix / NextPax connection is located here:

Once the integration has been enabled and setup on both Lodgix and, NextPax will contact you via email when the connection is live.

NOTE: The connection request will not be accepted by NextPax until you've assigned the property ID's to Lodgix ID's as outlined in the previous step.

Step #4: Confirm the Connection within

SUPER IMPORTANT!!! As soon as the connection is accepted, the rate inputs that you've previously setup in are no longer used and the system will only use the data coming from the Lodgix - NextPax connection. If the connection contains no data (for whatever reason) auto close the property. The auto close script at is run early in the morning and is only done once a day. Thus it can be very frustrating if you confirm the connection before you have correctly mapped your property IDs to your Lodgix property IDs. Your properties will be closed on and won't be open for booking again till the next run, 24 hours later and only if the connection issues have been resolved.

Rate Multipliers

Within Lodgix a default currency must be chosen for all properties. However requires that listings be in the local currency. So if your Lodgix account is set to use the Euro, but requires the Rupee for example, a rate multiplier will need to be set. A rate multiplier of 1.10 for example will result in the rates being sent to increased by 10%. A setting of .90 will decrease the rates by 10%, etc..

NOTE: When a booking is made on and a corresponding invoice created in Lodgix, the invoice will not reflect the rate multiplier, the invoice will need to be manually edited to match the rates / fees on the invoice.

Per Person Rates

The integration will ignore any per person rates which are setup for that property in Lodgix. You will need to set the "Base Guests" and then the additional guest rate you wish to charge after the "Base".

Managing Expectations: Connection Timelines

From the time the connection has been properly configured on both Lodgix and, a most probable expectation would be a 2 to 5 business day time to completion. is a large organization and your extranet may require some backend modifications to work with the NextPax - Lodgix feed. At times, this can take a few days for to make those changes. Please be patient.

Cancellations will not allow reservation cancellations by the property manager, only the guest can cancel. Canceling a invoice on Lodgix will not cancel that booking on will still bill you for the booking, even though it has been canceled on Lodgix. Only the guest can cancel a reservation and they must do it from within

Calendar Availability calendars are synced continually with your Lodgix calendar. Updates are pushed to every 3-5 minutes, with a full calendar update occurring every 6 hours.

Collecting Guest Payments via

Subscribers are strongly encouraged to use the model where credit card data is passed to Lodgix and payment is then processed through the payment gateway configured within Lodgix.

However, subscribers in some countries may not have access to a payment gateway supported by Lodgix. In these instances Lodgix does support the model where payments are collected directly by

If using this model, no payment information is passed between Lodgix and Invoices are automatically created in Lodgix for new reservations from, but payment must be applied to those invoices manually in Lodgix once payment is received through
