Connection Instructions

There are 2 steps to connect your iBex account with My Bookings (Entertainment Book)

  1. Sign up for the connection directly with My Bookings

  2. Register My Bookings in your iBex Channel Manager account and set which rates and availability should be sent to them (illustrated from Step 7 below).

The property will have to form a relationship with MyBookings and obtain the credentials below.
  • Username
  • Password
The property, room and rate details have to be created and set up in MyBookings’ extranet before the connection in iBex can be done. The status of each room has to be set to live so that they will appear in the mapping page in iBex.
The Standard Occupancy and Additional Occupancy of each room in MyBookings have to be set to match iBex.

MyBookings only displays base rates for rooms and bookings so iBex is set to send base rate to rooms / rates in MyBookings. Properties will need to state the rate for extra pax on their listing in their MyBooking site.
Once the rooms and rates in the extranet have been set up, mapping in iBex can be done.  
Room and rate mappings are straight forward, no multiple rate is accepted.
