How do I add the booking calendar to my website?

    Follow

    Once you have set up your inventory, pricing, and reservation rules to your account.  You're now ready to integrate the booking calendar into your website. This is a simple process that doesn't involve a technical background to achieve.  We will discuss how below. 

    Access the Booking Calendar Code

    The booking calendar is an HTML code within an iFrame.  This technology allows you to embed the booking calendar into your own website to make for a seamless booking process for your customers.  You'll find the code in your account by clicking on the Website tab. 

    Website tab

    On this page, you can access the link to your listing on WebReserv.com as well as customize, preview, and access the HTML code needed to add the calendar to your site. 

    WebReserv.com Listing

    You can find the link to your WebReserv.com listing here.  Having an account with WebReserv comes with a listing on our website.  This listing allows customers to find and book with you directly from our site. It's fully integrated into your system, so when you get a booking, you'll enjoy the benefits of real time availability and automatic notifications.

    Customize

     The calendar options in this section allows you to customize the look of the booking calendar. You're able to customize easily in the following way:

    • Version - Choose from our 2 versions of the booking calendar.  Note that Version 2.0 is our most updated version, and the recommended one.  
    • Style - Choose Embedded here to add directly to your website
    • Search - Can select a search option here, or select non to show all products listed for booking
    • Availability Grid - Select yes to have an Availability Grid option.  This will create a button at the top of the booking calendar where a customer can get an At-a-glance view of your inventories availabilities.  This is ideal for Rentals and Campgrounds.
    • Appearance - Choose from the many options for color themes or create your own using our easy to use color grid.

    Product Listing

    Booking calendar Version 2.0 and the Embedded style option are the most popular choices and the default options.  When the user views the calendar, they will stay on your website, and will see the booking calendar inside your website. 

    An example of what the Product Listing view is shown below.

    Availability/Rate Grid

    This option, if set to yes, will allow customers to see a view of all your inventory and rates for a week at a time.  On the first page of the booking calendar, your customers can click on "View Availability and Rates" button to see the grid view.  Customers can also choose a date and see availability for that week.
