There are two ways to get your Listings to be controlled via the API.

1. Adding existing Listings that are on the Plum Guide.

All hosts have access to their credentials which consist of a Client ID and Client Secret (note these are different from credentials used to login to www.plumguide.com). Each set of credentials gives access to all the Listings belonging to the host.

These credentials can then be entered into a Property Management System or Channel Manager to gain access to all the listings. Once credentials are entered typically a matching process will being whereby the host will identity the Plum Guides Listing and match it against the property in their software.

We surface a number of data points to help the host with the matching process. However, it's up to the Property Management System or Channel Managers discretion on what information to surface on their software to aid in this process.

2. Adding new Listings that aren't on the Plum Guide.

If the host or property manager is not listing on the Plum Guide they will need to begin by applying. An application can be made on our apply page here or alternatively please email [email protected].

If the application is successful we will create the Listings after which Host Onboarding will move them into a published state. Once the listings are published hosts can gain access to their credentials. These credentials can be passed into a Property Management System or Channel Manager.
