Connect PMS with API
This page explains how to connect a PMS to Beds24 for Channel Management
1 API setup
Create an API Key for your Beds24 account at Settings > Account > Account Access
For extra security also whitelabel your IP address to prevent access from unauthorized IP addresses.
Access to most API functions will require the API Key and the PROP Key for the property being accessed.
There are usage limits on the API so design your system to avoid unnecessary and minimize the frequency of API calls.
2 Create Properties
Properties can be created manually within your Beds24 account or via API
Use JSON createProperties to create properties via API.
Set a PROP Key for the property when creating it so it can be accessed later via API.
3 Setup Price and Channel Mapping
Prices are defined in up to 16 daily price rows per room type.
Each row can be defined with an occupancy and minimum stay and sent to any combination of channels.
This means for each date can have up to 16 different prices for combinations of occupancy, minimum stay and channel.
Use JSON setDailyPriceSetup to create the daily price rows and map them to channels, including any rate codes.
