In order to use your Bambora account with OwnerRez, there are a set of API credentials that you will need to retrieve from Bambora and store in OwnerRez.
Once you've added the Beanstream/Bambora payment method in OwnerRez, you will notice that we ask you for a set of four fields at the top of the page:
- Merchant ID
These items are provided to you by Beanstream/Bambora and can be found in the Beanstream/Bambora gateway terminal under Order Settings.
However, you have to select the Use Username option under API access passcode. Login to the Beanstream/Bambora terminal and go to Order Settings.
Select the "Use username/password validation against transaction" option.
Once you've selected this option, the User Name and Password fields may autocomplete. If so, use them.
If not, make up a new User Name and Password, and enter them in the fields. Do not use the same username or password as you use for the Beanstream/Bambora gateway terminal, or OwnerRez!
You now have your Credentials which can be used in OwnerRez to finish filling out the payment method. Make sure to save changes, both in the Beanstream/Bambora gateway terminal and in OwnerRez.
Test, Test, Test
After creating the payment method in OwnerRez, do a test transaction using a real credit card. There is no better way of testing your API Credentials then running a real credit card. To do that, create a manual booking, collect a payment using your personal credit and a small amount (say $5). Once it goes through, use the Void & Delete option on the payment to void the credit card payment. Then cancel or delete the booking. That will tell you definitively that everything is good to go.
