Payment Matching

General information

HORES Payment Matching API is designed to process individual payments from bank account statements or similar sources, record them and automatically or manually match them to reservations or invoices in HORES.

API is designed as simple HTTP API using JSON data format, see available endpoints.

Using SSL encryption (HTTPS) is mandatory.


Authentication is done via HTTP Authorization header using permanent token.

Token can be defined for each user in HORES and allows for non-interactive authentication of API operations in the name of that user. Use „Authorization“ header with „Token“ keyword such as:

POST /payment_matching/match_payments HTTP/1.1
Accept: application/json

API Endpoints

GET /payment_matching/hores_info

Version and build info about running HORES instance. You can use this endpoint to check if server is running and validate your token.

POST /payment_matching/match_payments

Post one or more transactions to process.

„amount“, „transaction_id“, „currency_code“ and „date_of_payment“ fields are mandatory.

„transaction_id“ must be unique for every transaction for particular client across all accounts. Repeated requests with same transaction_id will result in warning „transaction already exists“ for given transaction. Transaction with duplicated „transaction_id“ is not updated, duplicated data are ignored!

Single request may contain multiple transactions. Transactions are processed individually.

If all transactions within request are processed without error, return code is 0. Otherwise return code is 1 and list of „errors“ is provided.

Any other return code beside 0 and 1 means complete failure to process request.
