The first thing you need to do is to contact Realex, make a contract for them to become your payment provider and apply for a Payment Gateway.

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

How do I add Realex as a payment provider?

Click Widgets in the top menu and click Payment Providers from the drop-down.

Click on the blue Yes button in order to configure Realex as your payment provider.

Click the Realex logo to add them as your payment provider. 

Click Realex payment gateway.

Fill in the following form according to the integration information you get from Realex. You choose the name yourself but Realex provides you with all the other information. Please note the currency has to be the same as your contract with Realex specifies. If your contract is in USD, you have to add USD here.

Please make sure you copy the whole code and that there are no spaces in the fields. You will otherwise get an error message when you try to continue to payment in the booking process.

What next? How do I start accepting payments via Realex payment gateway?

You need to add the payment provider to your Booking Channel. A booking channel is an online sales channel that tracks where your online bookings are coming from. Usually, it will be your company's website. Learn more about Booking Channels.

You can sign up for more than one payment providers, that's why you need to select the correct one. You can for example use one payment provider for your European travelers, and another one for your US travelers.

Click on Widgets in the top bar and click Booking Channels from the drop-down.

Select the booking channel you want to add the payment provider to.

Navigate to Pricing and Payments in the left-hand side menu. Select your payment provider for this Booking channel from the drop-down menu and click Continue.

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

The last step: Test your payment process

This is to test both the booking process and to double check that your payment option is functioning as it should.
