Applying additional fees to a Booking Engine API reservation

The information in this article is relevant only for Pro users at this time.

Once you create a Booking Engine API instance and an inventory of additional fees for your account or an individual listing, you can choose which fees to apply by default to your Booking Engine API. These fees will be visible to potential guests when confirming their reservation. If you have more than one Booking Engine API instance set up, the fees will apply to all of them.

Important:

In order for the Booking Engine website, and the Booking Engine API options to appear in the "Manual sources" drop-down, you must first create a reservation via these sources. Following the first reservation from the respective source, a "website" source will appear for the Booking Engine website, and a "BE API" source for the Booking Engine API.
