What is synchronized?

Our integration pushes listing content, rates, availability, and rules to bnbfinder. bnbfinder will send booking data and credit card information to OwnerRez.

Setup

To get the integration process started:

  1. Log in to OwnerRez, go to Settings > API Integrations > Connect a Channel, then select Connect bnbfinder API.
  2. Make sure to configure the channel settings and save.
  3. Once you save, find your Account ID on the Instructions tab, and complete the following steps.
  4. Log in to your bnbfinder Property Manager Account by navigating to: bnbfinder.com - click on the user icon in the top right corner, where you'll see the option to 'Login.'
  5. Click on 'Manage Your Properties' (located in the top-right corner of the page) to access your properties dashboard.
  6. Click on the 'Connect PMS button' in the page's top-right corner.
  7. Select OwnerRez from the available options and click Continue.
  8. You will be prompted to enter your OwnerRez Account ID shown in step 3, then click Connect.
  9. After the connection is established, the import will start, and you’ll be redirected to the properties page to view your listings. Now that your listings are created, the last step is to choose a subscription level for each listing and publish to go live. Once a listing is published, it will be visible for travelers on bnbfinder.
  10. Use the Change Property Mappings button on the Properties tab and enter the bnbfinder Slug for each OwnerRez property.

 Change Property Mappings

bnbfinder does not use property listing numbers, rather they use "slugs" generated from the bnbfinder URL address.

For example, if the bnbfinder URL address is https://www.bnbfinder.com/listings/fancy-rental-florida-z4FV, the bnbfinder "slug" is the last part of the link after /listing, in this case fancy-rental-florida-z4FV

Users should enter their bnbfinder "slug" into the bnbfinder Slug field and hit Save.
