Before integrating with a channel, you must have your properties setup in Lodgix. Your listings should include descriptions, rates, and images. Your reservation and security deposits need to be configured, as well as your taxes, fees, and services. Finally, you must have a payment gateway setup to accept payments online for vrbo and booking.com / expedia. If you have not yet completed these steps please reference the Getting Started section of the user manual before proceeding.
Channel integrations can be managed from Settings > Integrations within Lodgix. Each channel that we offer an integration with functions differently. Below you will find a brief description of the process for each, as well as links to more detailed integration instructions.
There are many benefits when integrating directly to VRBO. Our full VRBO documentation can be viewed here: VRBO Integration
No dual entry. Property setup data entered into Lodgix is used to create listings on VRBO and all domestic and international listing portals owned by VRBO.
Easy calendar sync. Calendar data can be sync'd two ways, from Lodgix to VRBO and by using the Book it Now feature on VRBO, reservations can be made on VRBO and transferred into Lodgix.
Automated updating. Every time you update your property on Lodgix with new rates, images, marketing data, etc. that data is sync'd with your VRBO listing automatically once per day (2am EST)
Instant Book. Bookings made on VRBO will transfer seamlessly into Lodgix.
Our integration with Airbnb will sync bookings, calendars, rates, property data, and inquiries.

Booking.com / Expedia / NextPax Channels
Our Booking.coma and Expedia integrations are a bit more complex than the integrations with Airbnb and VRBO. It is imperative that you have your properties and inventory settings configured correctly. You must also have a thorough understanding of how invoicing works within Lodgix. It is recommended that you have some experience working with reservations within Lodgix prior to integrating with either of these channels.
