Support for Importing Properties via Version 2 of the Loop Software API

27th October 2022

We added support for importing properties from estate agency CRM Loop Software back in 2019, and as they’ve continued to grow and develop, so has their API.

As always we’re keen to ensure our add ons are always integrating with the latest technologies and that our mutual clients can take advantage from the benefits that come with the newer, improved APIs.

As a result, we’re pleased to announce that as of version 1.3.03 of our Property Import add on we now fully support V2 of the Loop API. This updated API comes with a number of benefits over it’s predecessor, including:

  • Faster, and more robust
  • Actively maintained by Loop
  • Fully supports Sales and Lettings portfolios
  • Receives regular updates from Loop
  • Custom fields (i.e. property types and statuses) are sent as textual values instead of IDs making it easier to map them to the equivalent value in Property Hive
  • With more to come in the near future…

The existing V1 Loop API will be decommissioned on 1st Feb 2023 so be sure to update to the latest version of our Property Import add on prior to this. Users with a license key will have the ability to update to the latest version through WordPress right away.

Once updated to the latest version you’ll have the ability to choose the new version of the API from the list of formats:
