Wix.com, the web development platform of choice for over 67 million users worldwide, launched a tailored solution for property owners last August. WixHotels is a code-free booking engine that can be fully integrated into the Wix websites of hotels, B&Bs, hostels and vacation rentals. The integration between myallocator by Cloudbeds and WixHotels will allow hoteliers to market their vacant inventory on thousands of new online marketplaces.
With over 300 integrated marketing channels, myallocator by Cloudbeds is the leading channel manager in the market, giving hoteliers accessibility to an unmatched catalogue of online marketplaces. Myallocator by Cloudbeds powers inventory deliverability for thousands of hotels, hostels and B&Bs in over 100 countries.
Until myallocator by Cloudbeds, listing vacant inventory with OTAs has been a challenge for independent hoteliers. Each OTA has its own set of requirements in order to get listed, creating an environment where OTA listings are dominated by franchises and large groups.
“The last thing any property owner wants is a room to sit empty. Myallocator makes for a powerful integration with WixHotels that seamlessly adds easy-to-use channel management to its existing native booking engine functionality,” said Adi Zellner, product lead for WixHotels. “Through the WixHotels application, property owners can accept and manage room bookings from their own site as well as bookings through major sites like AirBnB, Expedia, Booking.com, Travelocity and many others.”
Cloudbeds created the myallocator channel manager in order to save hoteliers time and money by eliminating the need for technical know-how, making it easier to connect to online marketplaces. Now hoteliers can list their rooms on as many OTAs as they wish with the push of a button. Through myallocator by Cloudbeds, independent hoteliers market their properties through new marketplaces they may not have previously been aware of.
“WixHotels was a brilliant move by Wix.com,” said Adam Harris, CEO of Cloudbeds. “With thousands of hotel customers using their intuitive online marketing platform, Wix was smart to provide a direct booking solution for property owners. We’re thrilled to partner with WixHotels through this integration.”
