Previously we've discussed the main differences between RETS and RESO Web API technology. The shift to RESO Web API is imminent and we are ready for it! Estatik Premium 3.9.7 and higher is RESO Web API compliant. So let's dig into this release and figure out what has changed.
All our Estatik Premium customers get free Setup Service no matter if we need to connect to MLS server via RETS or RESO Web API. However if you have several websites and need to do it on your own, there are a few things you should know. The new Estatik RETS & Web API version offers you to select what kind of technology you can use. RESO Web API is quite different than the classic RETS feed. Make sure that your MLS doesn't confuse and provides exactly what we need, namely: Client ID, Client Secret, Token URL, or Access Token.
Apart from Web API support, we have also improved our latest Estatik Premium plugin and implemented several fixes from its prior release:
* NEW: warning popup message added when deleting RETS profile
* NEW: map marker popup for multiple listings (units) with same lat & long implemented
* NEW: updates queue details & reset options in Synchronization added
* NEW: extra import tools added (pause, editing, one-time import)
* NEW: date selection for updates check added
* NEW: extra filters for synchronization added
* FIX: PDF flyer bug for PHP 7 fixed
* FIX: CSS class for html body in Agents (admin area) fixed
* FIX: address skipping in RETS synchronizer fixed
* FIX: MLS properties cache issue fixed
Let us remind you about some other important facts you should keep in mind:
1. Neither RESO nor Estatik provides MLS real estate data. Agents should contact brokers or MLS providers directly to obtain those data. Please read here how you can do that.
2. RETS is an older standard for real estate industry. More and more MLSs switch to RESO Web API but there are still a few that work via RETS and for us it is ok, Estatik Premium support them as well.
3. Estatik Premium works with both RETS and RESO Web API but it doesn't support MLS providers that work via MLS Grid.
4. RESO Web API is the same organic import not iframe and it requires the same server configuration and capacities.
