[Video] Requesting an IDX Integration
The video and article below will walk you through how to request IDX integration. Agent/Broker Pro users have the ability to add more than one IDX feed to their sites, to find out more read our article on Integrating Multiple IDX feeds. Note: IDX integration typically takes up to 10 business days but speed can be impacted by delays in receiving signatures from the agent and broker, as well as delays in response from your MLS.
Accessing IDX Integration
You can access your IDX integration in two ways. The quickest way is from your Dashboard's "Getting Started With Placester" menu.
From the Site Settings menu select IDX Integration under Listings
Step 1: Select State and MLS
Find your state and MLS name, then click Next.
Step 2: Enter Contact Info
Enter your agent email address, phone number and office name that will be used for contacting the agent to sign the documents. Click Next.
Step 3: Submit Request
Depending on your MLS requirements, this step will prompt you for more information, such as the Agent ID and broker's email address. We'll only use the broker's email address to send the IDX documents to. It is a good idea to let him or her know to look out for documents to sign so that you can have listings on your site as soon as possible.
Click Send Request when all of the information is filled out.
General IDX Approval Process
The approval process most often involves sending electronic forms to the agent and broker to sign. We use an online document signing service called RightSignature to request the signatures. Once we receive those, we’ll automatically contact your MLS for their approval. After receiving approval, we’ll make your listings live on your new site!
Different Approval Processes
Some MLSs have slightly different processes that require the agent to reach out to the MLS directly or log in to an online portal to start the approval process. If this is the case, you will receive instructions to get started.
How Long Does it Take?
IDX integration typically takes 10 business days but speed can be impacted by delays in receiving signatures from the agent and broker, as well as delays in response from your MLS.
