<div class="heading">API: Connect PMS or OTA</div> ''This page explains how to connect a PMS or OTA to the Beds24 API for Channel Management''
== Introduction ==
== API setup ==
Create an API Key for your Beds24 account at Settings > Account > Account Access
The JSON API functions are recommended
== Create Properties ==
Use JSON createProperties to create properties and their rooms via API.
Descriptive content can optionally be added to a property and it's rooms with JSON setPropertyContent
== Setup Price and Channel Mapping ==
Prices are defined in up to 16 daily price rows per room type.
Use JSON setDailyPriceSetup to create the daily price rows and map them to channels, including any rate codes.
We recommend using only daily prices instead of rates for this type of connection and for simplicity not using both daily prices and rates.
== Send Price and Availability ==
Price and availability can be set per room type with JSON setRoomDates
For each date, up to 16 prices, the number of rooms available, minimum stay (room level), maximum stay (room level) and check-in check-out restrictions can be sent.
== Bookings ==
There is no need to send bookings to Beds24, it is better to manage inventory by setting number of rooms available with JSON setRoomDates
Make sure to adjust your inventory levels to account for the channel booking in Beds24.
== Booking Notification ==
When a booking is created, modified or cancelled by a channel, we will send a notification push to a URL specified by you.
The notify push expects an HTTP 200 response and will retry after a delay if this is not received.
== Booking Detail ==
Booking can be read with JSON getBookings by specifying the booking number from the notify push.
This will allow you to check for any bookings which are new or modified where the notify push was missed.
== Booking Modification ==
If a booking is modified by a channel, you will receive a notify push and you can read the new booking detail.
It is up to your system to compare the new booking detail with the original and determine what actually changed.
==Retrieve Content==
Use JSON getProperties to retrieve properties and their rooms via API.
