Partner Integrations - Booking WidgetBack to top
Once commission rates are configured, the next step is setting up a Partner to make bookings attributed to their Partner account.
If the Partner has their website, they can embed our Booking Widget directly into their page, just like you have probably done with your website.
From within the Partner's account, go to the Integration menu. Partners can generate the code from here to add to any website platform.
If the Partner is using a specific platform, such as WordPress, then they can choose this from the left sidebar to produce the appropriate code.
After customizing the booking portal’s features and appearance, click Generate Code.
This code should be copied and pasted into the relevant web page where your Partner wants the booking portal to appear.
The system assigns each vendor a unique Partner ID when their account is first created. This displays as part of the embed code once the system has generated it. The Partner ID ensures Commissions are applied to the appropriate vendor. This number is the same as the Account ID displayed to Admins within the Partner Accounts list (Manage > User Accounts).

Hosted Booking Page with Partner IDBack to top
In addition to the Booking Widget, Partners can also use the Hosted Booking Page to make a reservation.
To do this, append your hosted booking URL with
/?partner_id= and then the Partner ID as shown above. The link can then be added to the Partner's website or communications so bookings can be made directly through that extended URL.
This Partner ID is the same as the Account ID displayed to Admins within the Partner Accounts list (Manage > User Accounts).
