Widgets

The TourCMS Marketplace widget system enables you to put your tours on a partner website with a single line of code. No complicated API integrations yet you can control the content on your own account and ensure that partner websites present current content.

The widgets drive traffic to your website (for you to deal directly with the consumer) via the 365 day cookie based tracking system built into TourCMS. You can create affiliate or agent commission based relationships powered by this functionality.

Capabilities Your partner will need a (free) TourCMS Marketplace partner account to use this functionality (sign up)

How many tours can you put in a single widget?
Normally we suggest you limit to 10 tours in a widget (on a single screen). The limit is defined by the API call (limited to 200 per screen). A really silly example showing you a widget with 200 tours in!

Can we put a widget on your own website? (A TourCMS supplier)
Widgets are primarily designed to go on agent / affiliate websites, however you can place them on your own website. Just make sure that (for any widgets going on your own website) when you generate the widget you set the "TourCMS Marketplace partner" to "None (use on your own website)".

Steps to getting started - supplier side
  1. Set up your company information (In your main login - go to TourCMS Marketplace - configure channel)
  2. Ensure some of your tour products have tour descriptions (Marketplace fields). At least 1 product image is required as well. If you go into the TourCMS Marketplace you will see at the top a notification for which tours have complete / incomplete data
  3. Upgrade to a paying TourCMS account :)
  4. Sign up your agents / affiliates - sign up form.
  5. Find your agents / affiliates in the TourCMS Marketplace and create a connection to the ones you want to work with. You can associate them with an existing agent record or create a new agent record
