Connecting to Property Drive API

If you wish to use this plugin to connect to your Property Drive account, please enter your API Key into the Importer Settings and turn Auto Sync on.

Property Drive is a portal that enables you to connect your Estate Agency software to the cloud and sync your properties in real time to a host of 3rd party property listing platforms around the globe. The importer functionality included in this plugin, does not send any information, save for your unique API Key, to the Property Drive servers or any 3rd party services. It is merely an import functionality that pulls an XML feed directly from your Property Drive account, this is then read by the plugin, sorted, compared with current listings and then stored, updated or removed, depending on the settings you choose. No private information is disclosed or stored that has not been provided by yourself & explicitly made public from within your Property Drive account.

If you have any questions relating to the use of data, the information, sent or received, please direct your queries to

To view information relating to the Property Drive API please visit – incidentally this is also the server used to fetch the Propery Drive feed.

If you discover that your properties are not importing at the selected, scheduled time, please ensure you have a Cron job correctly running on the wp-cron.php – Ideally for low traffic websites, this should be set to run between every 5 and 30 minutes.
