Rates for CRS and OTA
To create a new rate for a Channel Manager in Rover, please follow the steps below.
1. BUILD THE RATE.
In the article "How to Create a Base Rate," skip the first section where it talks about creating a rate type; however, you can start from the section "Create New Rate" to guide you through the rest of the process for building a rate. Make sure to leave the "End Date" field blank unless you know for sure the rate should no longer be available after a specific date.
2. BUILD THE RATE IN YOUR CHANNEL MANAGER WITH EXACTLY THE SAME RATE CODE YOU BUILT IN ROVER.
As you can see in the example below, the Channel Manager uses this value (boxed off and labeled 2) to link Rover messages with pricing and restrictions to the rate in the Channel Manager.
3. CREATE RULES FOR YOUR NEW RATE CODE.
After you have created the rate in Rover AND your Channel Manager, navigate to Settings > Rates > Channel Managers > Select a Channel Manager > Add the new rate code > Choose only the room types you added in your Channel Manager > Add Rule. Rover should then start communicating rate information to your Channel Manager.
