About the Checkfront API
The Checkfront API (Application Programming Interface) allows developers to expand and build on the Checkfront Booking Platform, making it easy to create web, desktop & mobile applications that directly integrate and interact with your Checkfront account.
Public API and Authenticated API access
We provide two levels of access to our API, Public API access and authenticated API access.
Checkfront provides a Public API feature that allows unauthenticated Users to pull information about items/products and availability. This data is an alternate version of what you can obtain using the authenticated API and only provides already public information that could otherwise be accessed from the Customer Booking Page.
In addition to our Public API, Checkfront provides authenticated access to additional information for verified accounts on the legacy plans and new Growth (Per Booking) and Managed plans.
