|connection_permission||The permissions granted by the channel owner when the connection was made, of most interest to Marketplace Agents (Tour Operators have full - 3 - permission on their own channels)|
1 Sell only (No booking access)
Able to sell products but they won't see how successful they are.
Ideal for advertisers earning a fixed fee per year (rather than on success)
2 Summary statistics (For affiliates)
Can sell your product and see a top level summary of click/booking success and some basic booking information: dates, lead customer name, sale value, commission earned etc.
This level is designed for website affiliates who need to know how they are doing but are not part of the bookings transaction
hence you don't want to over disclose personal consumer information to them
3 Full booking details (Just on own bookings)
Full access to booking and customer records for bookings they have generated.
However Marketplace Agents have no access to internal information such as profit margin nor suppliers used.
Designed for travel agents who probably have the customer information already as they gave you the booking in the first place
||The legal company name the channel belongs to. Not intended for general marketing/public display. Instead use <channel_name>

||Staff entered name for the gateway, freetext
|A field for each possible supported credit/debit card type (MasterCard, Diners Club, Discover, American Express, UnionPay).
Will be "1" if card type is accepted, "0" if it isn't
Useful to display an indication of which card types are accepted when booking, perhaps using icons like these.
||Indicates the type of gateway used, if "SPRE" then the operator is using Spreedly which allows agents websites/apps to offer payments direct to the operator.
Other values include "PAYP" for PayPal, "AUN" for Authorize.net
|If operator using Spreedly (gateway_type "SPRE")|
|spreedly_environment_key||Required for taking credit card payments via Spreedly payment solution powered companies. This is open for travel agent use as well as supplier. More details|
|If accessing as a tour operator (not agent)|
|Configuration settings for the payment gateway, useful if building a custom booking engine, allows gateway details to be stored once - in TourCMS.
10 fields, not all are used for all gateways (so some may be blank). The data stored in each numbered field varies by gateway, see the gateway settings page in TourCMS to match up the correct fields.
