New Payment Methods for IWB Payments and Affiliate Programs

If you use Instant World Booking’s excellent IWB Payments service, or are an affiliated hotel, take advantage of our most efficient payment option: Delivery by EFT Electronic Funds Transfer (ACH)

Choosing this delivery option directs us to automatically deposit the funds to a specified bank account.   Receiving funds by EFT is free, and is relatively fast, although not as fast as a Wire Transfer.   So if you are currently receiving funds by Bank Wire Transfer, and wish to save the fee associated with that method, choose EFT.  Free delivery via EFT is currently available for the following currencies and countries:

AUD to Australia.

CAD to Canada.

EUR to France, Germany, Italy, Netherlands and Spain.

GBP to The United Kingdom.

NZD to New Zealand.

New XML Guide for Affiliate Programs

New for 2011, we are proud to announce the release of version 3.0 of Instant World Booking’s XML API Guide.  This is a major release, now featuring full XML support for white-label affiliate programs.

Instant World Booking’s affiliate programs are suitable for any website where travel and accommodation content is desired, including the ability to host a full-fledged online booking service. For example, members of our affiliate program can access almost unlimited data pertaining to accommodations, their amenities, and availability. Developers can therefore integrate this data into their websites to completely control their users’ experience. In other words, a white-label travel information and booking service can be achieved using the XML API.

See Affiliate XML API Guide

Our XML API continues to support full 2-way automatic update of availability calendars.  This functionality is suitable for individual property managers, accommodation chains, consolidators, channel managers, front desk systems, property management systems (PMS), and even other booking engines. In fact, anyone who is tired of managing their calendar manually, or updating multiple booking systems, can use our XML API to achieve perfect synchronization automatically.
