Tokeet booking engines can power a booking widget you implement on your non-Tokeet website, or you can link directly to booking engine pages from your site.  

You can utilize Tokeet's booking engine domains like booksafely.com, or utilize your own domain by following a few simple configuration changes in the second part of this article.  

Before you create a booking engine, make sure to add the Stripe Payment Gateway.

Create Booking Engine with Tokeet domains

  • Navigate to Websites > “Create New” and select “Booking Engine”

Complete required info:

  • Booking Engine Title (name)
  • Subdomain
  • Select Tokeet domain 
  • Select Tokeet Rental(s)
  • Select Template (any)
  • Click "Save"

On the subsequent Booking Engine Details page, select the Rate Category used by your Booking Engine.

  • Click "Save" and "Publish"
  • That's it!  Your booking engine is now live and can be used in a Tokeet booking widget.

Tip: You can link directly to booking engine pages by clicking the orange "Download Links" button.  This is an alternative to utilizing Tokeet booking widgets.  Here's a sample booking engine URL:
https://secure.booksafely.com/checkout?rental_id=540e59fb-2c90-4124-8dba-90693162ecd2&website=aab21a1f-5f56-43cc-bdb2-6c0a7b5150e9

Create Booking Engine with your own domain

  • Navigate to Websites > “Create New” and select “Booking Engine”

Complete required info:

  • Booking Engine Title (name)
  • Subdomain (placeholder, since you'll be using your own custom domain)
  • Select Tokeet domain (placeholder, since you'll be using your own custom domain)
  • Select Tokeet Rental(s)
  • Select Template (any)
  • Click "Save"

Now, click "Configure" to enter in your custom booking engine domain.

On the subsequent page, delete the Tokeet subdomain and enter in your custom domain name.

  • Click "Save"

On the subsequent Booking Engine Details page, select the Rate Category used by your Booking Engine.

  • Click "Save" and "Publish"

You must now make a few DNS changes to point your website to the Tokeet booking engine.

  • Log into your domain registrar's website and locate the DNS (Domain Name System) settings for your domain.
  • Create a new CNAME record pointing www.your-domain.com to engines.tokeet.com
  • Create or update your A record to point to 34.207.48.246 . Note that Tokeet will redirect any request for your-domain.com to www.your-domain.com.
  • If you're using a subdomain, e.g. something.your-domain.com, and not a top level domain, then you can skip the A record configuration.
  • Tokeet must now issue you an SSL certificate.  Please contact us through chat or at support@tokeet.com and request the SSL certificate for your custom domain booking engine.  You will receive an email from Amazon with a request to approve secure certificates for your domain.
