One way to implement your price feed is to use Changed Pricing (formerly Pull with Hints).
The flow for this method is as follows:
Google sends a Hint Request message from the root element
<HintRequest>that contains time information from your most recent server update.
For an overview of repricing, see Repricing process.
Google sends a Hint Request message to your server at 5-minute intervals by default. This frequency can be adjusted by setting contact us.
The request message is sent using an HTTP
POST method with the
header set to
application/xml and the
User-Agent header set to
Google-HotelAdsPrices. Ensure the endpoint status that Google sends back is
contacting your Technical Account Manager (TAM). You should have configured this setting during your
Hotel Prices initial setup.
Hint Request example
Hint Request messages have a root element of
<HintRequest> and a single child element,
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?> <HintRequest id="request" timestamp="2023-06-03T22:59:48Z"> <LastFetchTime>2023-06-03T22:54:40Z</LastFetchTime> </HintRequest>
