How do I connect to Tripadvisor's Tripconnect Cost Per Click?
Myallocator currently connects to Tripadvisor via the "Cost Per Click" integration. This integration allows your property's booking page to be displayed to customers when they are shopping for rates, and directs them to your booking engine directly when they click your page on their results. Tripadvisor charges your property a "cost per lick" fee whenever this link is clicked by the customer.
In order to connect myallocator to Tripadvisor's Cost Per Click campaign, please follow the steps below.

If your property is not listed after 48 hours
In some cases, there may be an integration issue that prevents your property from being listed on the Cost Per Click Campaign.
If your property does not show up after 48 hours, please create a ticket with the following information:
- Your property name
- Your myallocator username
- Your Tripadvisor Property ID
- What date you updated the General Details in myallocator
We will then escalate the problem directly to Tripadvisor on your behalf.
Note: TripConnect downloads a list from us once a day with all properties that have BookNow enabled. They then use the details we transmit to them to match them to their own list of properties. If the details do not match, that could be the cause of the property not being listed.
