In Kigo we keep working to improve your amenities and the way they sync to our channel partners. This allows you to optimize your listings, maximize your listings’ visibility and increase your conversion.
New Amenities Added and synced with channels:
We have added new amenities to your Kigo solution. Most of them are amenities that Airbnb offers, and by selecting them you will improve your Airbnb listings’ visibility.
Please NOTE! We have included the amenity “kitchen”.
If you are synced to Airbnb, we have automatically selected for you the “kitchen” amenity for those properties that had 2 or more kitchen-related amenities so your Airbnb profile keeps showing “kitchen” as an amenity for those properties. From now on, the amenity “kitchen” will be synced only if ”kitchen” is selected in the amenities for each of the properties of your solution instead of being synced when 2 kitchen-related amenities were selected.
The new “kitchen” amenity is also synced with HomeAway and with your Kigo website.
