RMS Online API
Information on the RMS Online API.
The RMS Online API is an open source developer's kit offered at no additional charge providing qualified web developers a rich two-way data feed that can be used to integrate into the property's website with the full range of functionality of the RMS Internet Booking Engine.
Purchase of the RMS Online Module is required to utilise the Online API.
The RMS Online API includes sufficient information to allow an experienced developer to integrate a property's website with the full range of functionality of the RMS Online Booking System.
If the booking website requires the guest to make a payment during the booking process, the website developer must integrate with a payment gateway to facilitate online payments. The RMS Online API will accept a payment amount and token but will not accept raw credit card information or process payments on behalf of a website.
If a payment token is required for further processing the website and RMS must be configured to use the same Payment Gateway account and the developer must pass the token information in the RMSBookingRQ.
