How does it Work
- Listing shared inventory on OTAs maximize revenue potential, but it does carry some risk since you are offering the same physical room multiple times;

- If two linked rooms are booked at the same time or in the same reservation, we are unable to adjust availability since we have not received an update from the channel.
