What is Hopper
Hopper is a mobile app that sells flights and hotels via a mobile app, mostly popular in the USA but expanding globally.
How do we sign up?
You can visit their website here to see more information: https://hotelpartners.hopper.com/
Email them directly here: [email protected]
You will need to sign an agreement direct with Hopper before your hotel is ready to be sold online
How do I get Paid?
Hopper works by paying you all bookings via a Virtual Credit Card. This means you are guaranteed payments for all bookings generated via Hopper. The commission amount will be negotiated direct but it will be the industry standard amount that you use with other OTA's.
Hotels and Resorts Only
This connection is only for Hopper Hotels. If you have vacation rentals like Apartments or Villas then you cannot use this connection.
How do I Connect my Hotel to Hopper?
First you need to go to your channels page and create a new channel and search for "Hopper"
Once selected you should go to the mapping page and select which rate plans Hopper can sell.
Once you have mapped then you can activate the channel.
Net or Gross Model
When you agree to the contract directly with Hopper they will ask you what model you would like to use
Net: You send your prices without commission
Example: If you have a price of $100 to booking and Expedia, you need to give a price to hopper less commission of 15% which is $85 per night.
You can do that easily by putting a discount on the channel i nthe channel settigns and select to decrease by percent and the value of 15.
If you dont give a discount your prices will be too high and you will be unlikely get any bookings.
Gross: You send your commissionable price (This is normal with OTA such as booking and Expedia)
This model you just map your prices and you dont need any discounts.
Email Hopper at [email protected] if you have not been in touch with them first.
The property will not be sold until they have contacted you and the agreements have been signed.
