Expedia Local Expert is currently in beta, but starting April 4th, 2017, you may access this add-on from the main menu at Manage > Add-ons > Service Add-ons. The Expedia Local Expert tile is located under the Channel Management section.
Expedia Configuration in Checkfront
Local Expert, by Expedia, enables your customers to plan, reserve and book activities using the inventory in your Checkfront account. Bookings made through Expedia are updated in your Checkfront system, keeping your inventory in sync and up-to-date.
Setup In Checkfront
To configure the add-on in your Checkfront account, navigate to Manage > Add-ons > Service Add-ons, hover over the Expedia tile in the Channel Management section and click on the SETUP link.
Please note: An Expedia Local Expert account is required to activate this add-on, so if you do not currently have an account, visit https://join.localexpertpartnercentral.com to apply for one. Your application will then be reviewed by a member of the Expedia team to assess your company’s eligibility for Local Expert. Once approved by Expedia, you may return to enable the add-on within Checkfront.
If you already have an Expedia Local Expert account, when the activation window pops up, go ahead and click on the blue Activate button, as seen in the screenshot below.
We’ll then inform Expedia of your interest in linking your Local Expert account with your Checkfront account. An Expedia representative will reach out to discuss the integration and let you know if any further information is required.
From a Checkfront standpoint, your work is now done. The rest of the activation will be completed on the Expedia end.
