The steps taken between yourself and SuperControl
You can start the activation process via the Booking.com extranet by clicking on the Channel Manager link, under the Property Info tab.
If you already know who you are connecting with, start the procedure by clicking directly on the Start button and search for their name. Otherwise, you can check our preferred partners beforehand.
Once you have selected the Channel Manager, choose between the types of connection needed.
To complete your connection, complete all fields and accept and agree to the Terms and Conditions by clicking on Accept. You will receive a notification in your extranet Inbox along with a PDF copy of your XML Service Agreement
