Connecting to OnceThereBack to top
Once you've created an account with OnceThere, you'll need to send some API credentials from your Checkfront account.
Steps to Connect to OnceThere via the API
If you're in a hurry and don't have time to read this document in depth, here's a quick rundown of the steps required to connect Checkfront to OnceThere via the API:
To locate the API credentials, navigate to Manage > Developer in your Checkfront Booking Manager. Make sure the API tab is selected, which it should be by default.
In the left sidebar, click on the button labeled + New Application.
Next, you'll need to provide a bit of information in order to create your application. Don't worry if this all sounds way too complicated. It's not. Checkfront and OnceThere do most of the work for you, but this application is required to identify your Checkfront account over all the other ones.
You'll need to give the application a name. This can be whatever you want, but it's probably best to keep it simple and name it OnceThere.
The default here is Token and this is the option you need to use.
API Terms of Service
Read through the terms of service if you so wish and then check the box labeled I have read and agree to the API terms of service.
When you're ready, click on the blue Create button to complete the process.
You will now be presented with your application's API credentials. OnceThere needs the API Endpoint, API Key, and API Secret.
Copy these credentials and email them to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Include the following information in your email:
- Your first and last name
- Business name
- City(s) of operation
- API Endpoint, API Key, and API Secret
- Any additional information that may be applicable to your business that you think OnceThere should know
Typically, OnceThere will be in touch within 24 hours of receiving your email.
