Before activating the channel, please read the following article, where preliminary operations and important warnings are explained:

☞ Docs: Tips for Channel Manager activation

To know before proceeding

  • The restrictions that ZaK updates for Agoda are: closure, no check-in/out, min/max stay, min stay arrival, ota limit, availability modifier
  • Min and max advance must be set on Agoda Extranet
  • If you have rates/promo managed with Agoda (not xml), you will still find in ZaK their reservations. But please make sure that the room assigned by ZaK is correct.
  • Cancellation policy: ZaK shows the policy sent by Agoda.
  • Board: ZaK detect the board set at Agoda product level.

Web: Extranet

4. Mapping rooms and rates

Now go back into the Agoda channel on ZaK and refresh the page. You may have to wait a few minutes. In the "PRODUCTS" section you will now find the rooms already created with Agoda, with the various rates to sell them:

The sale on Agoda is initially closed for security reasons. You must now associate each Agoda room/rate with the specific Zak product/rate. The products in purple are the unmapped and closed products. As you associate them, they will turn blue, which means that they are on sale, managed by ZaK.

To associate a product, click on the white icon next to it:

Now choose the ZaK product and rate to be associated with that Agoda product/rate.

- In the "Extra bed price" field, you can define the cost for each additional guest. So we are talking about occupations above the basic one, not below. You must first enable these occupancy directly with Agoda.

- In the "Occupancy variations" section, you can define further occupancy, included lower occupancy (e.g. single use).

Then by clicking on the MAP button, ZaK will start updating that room/rate: the prices, restrictions and availability you've set on Tabla will be sent to Agoda.

At any time, you can quickly close the sale of the room with one click. For products that are already associated (blue), just click on the white icon with the red x. This will cancel the association and the Agoda room/rate will return to purple. You can re-join it at any time:

Can I manage from ZaK additional occupancy for my rooms?

- If you want to set a higher the occupancy of a room, you must proceed as indicated above (in point 5), setting the amount for each extra guest in the "Extra bed price" field.

- If instead you want to set a lower occupancy than the standard one, you just need to enable this option with Agoda, and then manage it from ZaK. For example, If you have a double for 2 adults by default and you want to sell it for 1 person too, just contact Agoda to enable the single use. Once enabled with Agoda, inside the ZaK channel you can set the single-use price in the "Occupancy Variations" field.
