Xola and Groupon have a working integration that allows your customer to create a booking from Groupon's website, and push that booking and its relevant information straight into you Xola account automatically. This is a great way to increase revenue by selling your tours on a major distribution channel, while still viewing the bookings and reflecting accurate availability within Xola.
To set this up you will need a Groupon account, which you can sign up for here: https://join.localexpertpartnercentral.com/
After your Groupon account is up and running, you can have it integrate it with your Xola account by following these steps:
- Locate Groupon in the Xola App Store and select it.
- Click INSTALL and agree to the terms of service.
- Click Visit Settings Page or navigate to Settings > Apps > Groupon > Configure and select which listings you would like to allow Groupon access to. Selecting listings from this page only allows you to connect your Xola listing to your Groupon campaign. Your Xola and Groupon accounts will still have to be mapped to each other with the help of Xola and your Groupon representative.
- Once you have selected the listings you want to integrate with Groupon your campaign, reach out to your assigned Groupon Sales Representative to begin the mapping process.
Note: It is important to note that all Groupon bookings are auto-accepted in your Xola account, and you cannot modify or cancel them from within Xola. You will have to log in to your Groupon account to do so.
