Channel Manager Overview

We work really hard to provide the most suitable, simple and trusted channel integrations for SuperControllers - just one of the many ways we help self-caterers thrive. Each channel is different, and with that the integrations vary.  We are constantly upgrading the integrations we have with channels, use this page to quickly compare and see, at a glance, the type of connections we have with all of our channels.

Definitions

 

 'Availability Only' Integrations

SuperControl sends availability to a channel, but not prices or content. These integrations are typically set-up using iCal links

'One-Way' integrations
SuperControl sends availability to a channel and the channel sends nothing back. A 'one-way' integration can be made to work both ways through the use of an iCal link.
'Rates & Availability' Integrations
SuperControl sends (at a minimum) pricing and availability to the channel. These integrations can be either 'one-way' or 'two-way' (see above).

 'Full'  Integrations

SuperControl sends listing content, pricing and availability to the channel, and channel sends bookings back with (at a minimum) prices and guest details.

Default booking extras

These are booking extras added automatically to a booking, that guests can’t opt out of (e.g. cleaning fee, pool fee, fuel allowance)

Maximum capacity pricing

Some sites do not accept per person pricing, your pricing will default to the maximum price you would charge. For example, you normally charge £100pn for 2 people, £150pn for 4 people and £200pn for 6 people, maximum capacity pricing will use the £200pn pricing regardless of the amount of people booking. 

In the table below, those channels that have a help centre article about the integration have a clickable 'YES' in the right-hand column.

If there is a NO in the column, the set-up instructions can be found directly on the integration page in your SuperControl account.

This list is a guide to all the channels with which we have specific integration arrangements. If you are interested in listing on a site not covered in the table above, you can still do so using an iCal link to share availability only. This guide will explain how to do this.
