Before starting this tutorial, make sure you understand the following topics from the Quick start section:

Merchants in the lodging industry can pass certain parameters.

Only card-based requests are allowed, but you can use both the ecommerce or retail flows for terminal or remote.

The entire lodging object is optional. However, the following are all the supported parameters:

  • Advanced Deposit (lodging.advanceDeposit)
  • Check-in Date (lodging.checkInDate)
  • Check-out Date (lodging.checkOutDate)
  • No Show (lodging.noShow)
  • Room Number (lodging.roomNumber)
  • Room Rate (lodging.roomRate)
  • Folio Number (customer.orderNumber)
  1. Post Card Inforation to Nexio

    Send a POST request to the Run card transaction endpoint.
    Include the lodging object and the folio number in the body of your request.



    Folio number must be sent in the customer object, labeled orderNumber.
