Saving time and energy by managing your products in one place

Bókun is a booking management software owned by Tripadvisor that helps you sell your products and experiences online across a wide selection of distribution channels. Did you know that as a Tripadvisor company, Bókun is both a Tripadvisor and Viator Preferred Partner, allowing you to fully integrate with Viator and Tripadvisor? Keep reading to find out more…

What is a connection and how does it work?

By integrating with an OTA, in this case Viator, you’re creating a direct connection between Bókun and Viator. This means that you can manage your products, availability, pricing and so much more, all in one place — Bókun. Bókun then feeds this information to the OTAs in real-time, saving you the tedious (and sometimes error-prone) task of manually updating your products across several platforms.

Why should you connect your products today?

Connecting your products means that you can:

  • Centralize your pricing, inventory, and availability all in one place.
  • Increase efficiency and cut down on manual tasks for you and your employees.
  • … and because it’s easy to manage multiple platforms at once, you can maximize your exposure by selling and advertising your products across even more distribution partners.

And this includes Tripadvisor!

When connecting with Viator, you won’t only be selling your products on Viator.com and the Viator mobile app, but also automatically get a free Tripadvisor listing. This way you’ll be able to reach customers via Tripadvisor.com, the Tripadvisor app, Viator.com and their thousands of partner sites , while only having to manage your products in one place, your Bókun account.

Ready to get started? … Let’s go!

Head over to Viator to create an account and add your products (if you haven’t already!). The Bókun support team can do the rest and import your products into Bókun and connect them for you automatically. Simply get in touch with us via our help centre live chat (bottom right blue icon) — all we’ll need is your Viator Supplier ID.

Once you’re connected, you can make changes to your products all in one place — your Bókun account. When you’re up and running, be sure to read of our tips and guidance for making changes to your connected products .

Stay tuned for more…
