How do I activate Viator in bookingkit?
With an account at both Viator and bookingkit you can get the "book now" button at TripAdvisor. All orders that are placed via Viator or TripAdvisor can be easily entered by bookingkit. To create the interface to Viator and TripAdvisor, first click on "Activate" in your bookingkit app under the tab Marketing at Viator:
To link to bookingkit, you need a Viator account. Here you can register with Viator. If you need help with registration, please see our article "Register as a supplier with Viator".
Note: Most customers use TripAdvisor to book on Viator. To get the widest possible reach and speed up the Viator connection, register with TripAdvisor here.
Once you've registered with Viator as a provider, you can create your experiences in Viator. Since the link between Viator and bookingkit is a partial integration, each experience has to be created individually, you cannot transfer the experiences from the bookingkit app.
>>IMPORTANT: Your experiences in Viator must be clearly assignable to your experiences in bookingkit! So it's best to use the same name and the same picture.
The descriptions of the experiences will be reviewed by Viator editors. For marketing purposes, slight changes may be made. After about 7 days the experiences should be "live".
Your event definitions created in bookingkit will then be easily adopted and all orders received by Viator will be managed directly by bookingkit.
The link with Viator is a partial integration. This means that your bookingkit appointments are transferred to Viator and automatically synchronized. So you only need to maintain the availabilities in bookingkit. All bookings made via Viator are transferred to your bookingkit account and displayed.
You can market a limited number of seats via Viator using the Quota module. Here is a guide.
Note: The final decision on which experiences are published is made by Viator. In general, all providers are accepted.
Whom should I approach?
You can reach Viator colleagues on their customer hotline +49800 184 4973 or via the Viator contact form.
