This feature can be purchased as an add-on for Essentials, Plus, Professional or Growth pricing packages. If you are interested in Self-Service API, follow the guide below.
What is the Self-Service API?
Getting API access allows you to access your account's data programmatically and integrate with your local systems or build extended functionality to advance the guest experience.
API is primarily a self-service feature. It is required that you work with highly experienced developers. If you still need guidance or support after your developer has reviewed and analyzed the documentation here: Property and Group Account API Access you can email us: email@example.com.
