Wotif Information

Overview

Whether you are an existing Wotif customer or you wish to sign up with them, this article will take you through the steps to make the process of using the RMSOnline interface with Wotif easy!

Wotif Virtual Credit Cards

Wotif now have the ability to attach a Wotif Virtual Credit Card to a reservation in your system.

The Virtual Credit Card and Card Expiry will be primed in the Reservation Notes field.  The credit card number will still be encrypted in your actual database even though it is shown in this field.

Information on the payment terms and when the card can be processed will also be primed in the RMS Reservation Notes field.

 

NOTE: If you are using a payment gateway, the Virtual Card cannot be tokenized.  Instead you must enter the CC information into the receipt screen between the dates specified by Wotif and for the amount specified by Wotif.

Wotif Inclusions

For RMS Cloud customers, RMS is able to update the Wotif Inclusions for each of the Room Type/Rate entries that you have setup in your Wotif account.

To do this go to Setup > Online Bookings > Channel Management.  Edit your Wotif channel, select the Inclusions button at the bottom of the screen.

NOTE: As RMS does not contain spell check, we suggest that you type out your inclusion text in Word then copy and paste into RMS.
