What is a channel manager, and how does it help with my pricing?

Find out how a channel manager can save you time and help you manage your pricing and availability more efficiently on multiple channels.

A channel manager is a service provider that links the property management system (PMS) you use to manage your rooms and prices, with online platforms like Booking.com.

It lets you automatically update your rates, availability and reservations on several platforms all at once. If you don’t have a PMS, certain channel managers can provide you with one.

How can a channel manager help you?

If you’re selling rooms on more than one online platform, a channel manager will save you time and effort. It offers a fast, easy way to update your prices across all online channels.

You are also far less likely to get overbookings because once a room is sold, it will automatically be removed from all other online channels.

If you're offering availability across various platforms via a channel manager, you are more likely to sell your rooms for a good price during low season.
