Here’s a bit more details in case you got lost along the way!
To be able to publish your own virtual tour to Idealista you need 2 things:
First, you need to make sure your account with Idealista is upgraded to accept virtual tours – if you’re not sure, please ask your Idealista agent for more info on how to upgrade your account.
The cost for this is €29 per month for unlimited tours (at the time of writing)
Once you have confirmed you have the account upgrade with idealista, go into your My360 platform and click on the profile of the property you created the virtual tour for.
Under the tab “virtual tours” you will see 3 small cogs on the right. Click on them like so:
On the pop-up that opens, you will be able to check the box “Idealista” and the code on the right will change to reflect the tours with the configuration especially for Idealista.
All you have to do now is copy this code (embed code & link) and send it to your Idealista Agent. They will add the tour to your listing manually.
Easy right?? – we thought so too! But now we hear you ask….
Why do I have to use this code, can’t I just use my normal code?
We hear ya! 🙂 The answer is simple.
Idealista wants their platform to look sleek, modern and easy to navigate. And if you create a tour with lots of bells and whistles, Idealista might not approve. So we asked them what they needed so that every tour published with our software gets accepted, and they gave us a loooooong list of requirements.
All of these requirements will be added to your tour automatically when you use the codes as provided.
So this means, you can have your own private tour with lots of additional features such as GIF images, logos, descriptions, clickable links, images email addresses and contact forms, and you don’t have to re-do the entire tour again just to be able to publish it on Idealista! You can just create this new code and we will do all the hard work for you. Free of charge… because we’re nice like that 🙂
If you have any questions, or would like to, apart from publishing your own tour to Idealista, be able to publish your tour to a different platform, then get in touch. We will configure our platform to suit your portal too, at no extra cost, coz we’re awesome 🙂
