What is a booking engine? Is it the same thing as a widget? 

A booking engine is an application used to accept online reservation on your website. At Bokun, we use the term "widgets"  to refer to any of the online booking engines or other appliations that help make your online booking experience better.

Why do I need a booking engine?

You need a booking engine if you want to accept online bookings in your website or if you are reselling your suppliers' products on your own website.

How do I add a widget to my website?

You need to add a website in Bokun as a booking channel before being able to embed a widget. Learn more about Booking Channels here.
Then, widgets are uploaded to a website using an embed code that is generated directly on the Bokun platform.
