All about certifying Hotel Pull Sellers API
Ensuring that our Partners fully understand our API, can make good use of it and that the information transmitted is correct is essential for a successful collaboration. That's why all the Partners connecting to our platform are required to pass a certification process, whether they are buying or selling in our marketplace.
When to apply?
You should apply once you've finished the Hotel Pull Sellers API development.

Here you will find the excel file we are going to use for the certification. The file is divided in 6 different sheets:

We will need you to fill the green cells with the following information:

You should also fill the green cells from the Static Data sheet, specifying which methods have been implemented.
*No need to fill the rest of cells or sheets, just the availability one.
In order for us to be able to interact with your API, we will need you to provide the credentials, urls and parameters needed to be sent in the configuration.
