Channel Manager Activation Procedure

Once the agreement of the Channel Manager has been actived,the technical contacts of Netstorming will be share to guarantee the necessary assistance for the development of the connection. The email address provided is channel.managers@netstorming.net.

If the hotel has a channel manager, it is assumed that the collaboration is in Free Sale, therefore in the Category of the room contract, select FLEX. If instead, the collaboration with the hotel is on an Allotment basis, it must be selected FIT (in this case the Channel manager will be able to enter and modify Extrallotment and Extra Rates, but will not be able to modify the Allotment and Tariffs sections).
