Partner Network - Publishing & Unpublishing Listings

This article outlines the steps for publishing and unpublishing listings on the Boost Partner Network. Listings must be published to the Partner Network and then added to each Partner Network connected channel/OTA.

Overview

There are 3 main steps to complete when publishing your listings:

  1. Prepare your listing to be published

    1. Does your listing pass validation confirming that it meets the Partner Network minimum content standards?

    2. Do you need to make edits to your property headlines, add a price-adjustment, or any other configuration changes in Boost?

  2. Publish your listing to the Partner Network

  3. Publish your listing to the desired Partner Network Channel (ex: Homes & Villas by Marriott Bonvoy, Hopper, ETC)

Preparing a Listing to be Published

Its important to make sure your listing(s) is meeting the Partner Network requirements. Also, if you need to add some listing configurations in Boost, we suggest you do this before publishing. Please review ALL of your other property settings in Boost BEFORE publishing it.

Minimum Content Requirements:

Common Configurations added in Boost

  • If you need to make any edits/configurations to your listings in Boost, make sure to do that before publishing. Here are some common examples:

    • Cancelation Policy - Can be set for all listings in Partner Network Channel Settings and on the listing level.

    • Price Adjustments - If you have set a mark-up in Boost on rent and/or fees

    • Headlines/Names: If your property name doesn’t meet the character requirements, you may want to edit it in Boost. Important Note: Partner Network Headlines/Names must be no less than 20 characters and no more than 70 characters. If they exceed 70 characters Boost will automatically truncate them which may result in a less than optimal appearance on the live listing.

Publish to the Partner Network

If you have recently added new properties in your PMS, they will flow into Boost, but they will not be automatically published to the Partner Network and its connected channels (Marriott, Hopper, Etc)

Step 1. Log into Boost here: Rezfusion Boost and navigate to the Partner Network Listings Page.

Please note that you will only be able to successfully distribute listings that have an active PMS status. You will not be able to distribute inactive properties.

Step 2. Select Properties: Click the boxes next to the listing(s) you would like to distribute or check the box at the top of top to select all the listings in your current view.
