Definition of Realtyna’s Organic IDX Integration

Organically integrating IDX into a real estate website: The listings on the MLS will be imported to Realtyna Servers, and from Realtyna servers to the destination website.

If you have any different requirements, please feel free to contact us.


Organic IDX Integration

Internet Data Exchange (IDX) is a method of accessing listings data. Organic IDX Integration allows members to import and display the MLS properties/ listings on their website. This will be done through Realtyna servers which are importing data from MLS through RETS, which is approved by the National Associations of Realtors (NAR) in the United States.

Procedure - Realtyna’s Organic IDX Integration:

Setup of Organic IDX

Organic IDX is available on WPL Basic and also WPL Pro menus. Clients can simply sign up through the IDX wizard, choose the MLS and sign up for the Organic IDX integration service through the admin area of their Wordpress site. The following article explains the steps of Organic IDX wizard:

In case the client prefers Realtyna to do the setup for them, it’s best to contact us at info@realtyna.com or 650-336-0000, connect to sales line and one of our staff will walk you through.

You will be able to choose one MLS for a website, with the filter of the following parameters:

  • Whether you would like to import all listings or only agent/your office’s listings
  • Filter listings based on range of number of bedrooms (define minimum/maximum)
  • Filter listings based on range of number of bathrooms (define minimum/maximum)
  • Filter listings based on price range (define minimum/maximum)
  • Filter listings based on SqFt range (define minimum/maximum)
  • Choose listings of only one zip code to be imported.
  • Check if you would like to import the sold listings as well *

* Some MLS (like CRMLS) include over 1 Million of sold listings. This would take a considerable time for the import to finish.

MLS Approval

After the IDX Wizard is done, the chosen MLS board should approve and permit to show the listings on the client’s website, for which some paperwork might or might not be required (Depends on the MLS procedure) This process might take a few days depending on how fast the MLS responds.

Average ETA for this step: 2-3 days


Import Process

After MLS provides the approval, Realtyna can start the import process. To run the import process, Realtyna would require the Wordpress (And in rare cases cPanel) access.

The import process time frame depends on the number of listings that fit in the criteria of search you setup in the Wizard step.

By average, it’s expected to import around 1000 (minimum) listings per day.
