- Onboarding - Step 2 - Choose your channel manager

Already have an account? if yes, follow the steps here to choose Nextpax as your connectivity provider

The first thing you need to do is authorize NextPax to be your channel manager. If your units are  already listed on, you need to decide if you want to keep your current content, or if you  want to synchronize your content with your PMS. If you choose to do this, your current content will be  replaced with that in the PMS. We recommend managing all your accounts in the PMS in order for  NextPax to keep it synchronized on all channels. Think of your PMS as the ‘master source’. Once  NextPax is enabled to be channel manager, this will allow synchronization of content, prices and  availability from NextPax to the channel.  

1.Activation via IDs
NextPax can activate the connection via the ‘Legal Entity ID’. When you choose to connect via this option, all current data and content from the extranet will be overwritten with the data and settings from HAS. Would you like to keep the content, pictures and descriptions you currently use on, then you should provide NextPax with the Room ID, Standard Rate ID and Property ID.

You can find these IDs on the ‘Rates & Availability’ tab in the LOS Price Table. All prices and
availability will now be synchronized between HAS and The current content on will be kept when the connection has been enabled via these IDs.
