Note: If you use check-in restrictions in Avantio, at this time we don't recommend using PriceLabs. We're working on making sure that your check-in restrictions are not overwritten by PriceLabs when we update rates back to Avantio.
We're excited to announce our integration with Avantio VRMS - Avantio provides a comprehensive PMS, in-built Channel Manager with connections to world leading portals, & state-of-the-art, mobile-friendly Vacation Rental Websites. If you are new to Avantio and want to learn more, you can read more on their website or reach out to them here .
To get started with using PriceLabs and Avantio, you'll need to get the following from Avantio support: username, password, API key. Once you have these, you can use the getting started instructions to connect your Avantio account with PriceLabs to start your one month free trial.
Note that unless you choose to sync prices by turning on the sync switch, we will not update anything on Avantio. With this in mind, we then recommend you to get familiar with your dashboard, review prices for your listings, play around with the various customizations, dynamic min-night settings, group level settings to get an understanding of how everything works.
Once you're comfortable and are ready to go live, we recommend that you start with turning on the sync switch for one of your listings, and then click sync now (takes a few minutes) to see how the prices and min-stay will show on Avantio. Note that at this time, any special settings like check-in restrictions might be overwritten by our rates (we're making changes to keep them in place). The rates and min-stay updated by PriceLabs will look like as follows (they'll have a tag from PriceLabs next to the name):
After testing things with the first listing, most users run a small test for some weeks during their free trial with 4-5 listings to better evaluate how everything works before turning on pricing for their entire portfolio. As you setup your portfolio, do keep in mind the capabilities to create and manage customizations and overrides with groups.
Of course, at any point of time, feel free to email firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions, or if you need a quick call or demo to clarify how everything works. You can also reach out to Avantio support with any questions.
