The first thing you need to do is to contact Realex and make an agreement with them to be your payment processor:

When you have a contract in place with Realex you can connect Realex and Bókun.

To connect Realex and Bókun select the "Cog wheel in top right corner" then you select “Payment Providers” from the side bar:

Select "Connect a provider" to add a new payment provider. If you select "Supported Providers" you will see a list of available options that will take you directly to the payment provider's signup page. 

Select the right Logo to add your payment option: 

Select the name of your integration to continue: 

Fill in the following form according to the integration information you get in the Realex Admin interface.

Title The name you want to give the connection. A common Title is Realex Payments
Information provided by Realex
Account:  Information provided by Realex
SharedSecret:  Information provided by Realex
RebatePassword: Information provided by Realex

Make sure that there are no spaces in the fields, neither before or behind the numbers. If there are spaces you will get an error message when you try to continue to payment in the booking process. 

What next? How to activate my payment option

The next step is to activate the payment provider on your booking channel. Booking channel is what links bookings and payments from your website to Bókun. The reason for why you have to select the payment provider is that you can have more than one contract with payment providers. E.g. you can have one contract with Stripe in EUR for your European market and another one in USD for your American website. In that case you would have to select the EUR contract for your European booking channel.

To add the right payment provider to your booking channel, select "the menu icon in the top left corner", then select "Booking Channels" from the sidebar:

Select the booking channel you intend to add the payment provider to from your list of channels. You probably just have one channel. 

Select from the "Payment Provider" drop down list, the correct payment provider for this Booking channel. Remember to save when you are done. When you save this is set up and you can receive payments online.

Now you are set and ready to accept payments on your website 

Contact Realex and get IP addresses White Listed: 

Each and everyone of our customers that are using Realex as their payment provider have to contact their contact person and ask to have the following IP addresses white listed:

The last step: Test your payment process

After you add the booking engine to your website, a good rule is to create one booking and pay for it. This is to test both the booking process as it turns to your customer and to double check that your payment option is functioning as it should. Here are information on how you can add a booking engine to your website and test the whole booking process.
