We released the Travelpayouts Money Script — a much-awaited tool that will help you to automatically turn all website links into affiliate links. Just add the Money Script to the site, and any links to brands websites, such as Booking.com or GetYourGuide, that are available in our partnership platform, will become affiliate links and bring you income for every purchase.

How Travelpayouts Money Script Works

In order to use the script, you need to be registered in Travelpayouts first (if you do not already have an account) and join the programs with which you want to earn.

Once registered, add the script to your site. Below you will find a step-by-step guide on how to run a script. After you add the script, when a user clicks on a link on your website’s page, your Travelpayouts partner ID is automatically affixed to it. That is, the link becomes an affiliate and all clicks/reservations are taken into account — a reward is charged to you.

The script can handle both unlabeled links like http://kiwi.com/, and affiliate links, such as https://booking.com/?aid=1792345.

Using the additional parameters, Include and Exclude, you can add rules and exceptions, such as which links the script will convert and ignore.

Who Can Use Travelpayouts Money Script?

Travelpayouts Money Script is a tool for website owners. If you can change the code of your website, you can use the script. It’s useful in many cases, for example:

  • You have been blogging about travel for a long time, and you’ve tried different services and have recommended them to readers. You have good traffic, but you never thought about monetizing by the CPA model. Instead of manually wrapping links to the old articles, install Travelpayouts Money Script. It takes no more than half an hour and all old links will become the affiliate link.
  • You have been creating a blog or website for a long time and even work on the CPA model, but have used only one to two programs. The other services were given direct links. More than 100 brands are now available via Travelpayouts, and we regularly add new ones. During 2022, we’ve connected many well-known and trusted brands, such as Trivago, Tiqets, Snaptravel, and many others.
  • Your site has a lot of UGC content. For example, you have a blog where travelers share their travel reviews. You can monetize any link in their content using Money Script.

How to Run a Script

  1. Sign up for Travelpayouts (if you do not yet have an account).
  2. In your Travelpayouts account, find out your unique ID. It is located in the upper right corner.

How to find your affiliate ID in the Travelpayouts personal account
  1. Add the script on the site between the <head> and </head> tags. If you have any other scripts installed, it is better to put Money Script last.
<script async="" 
src="https://www.travelpayouts.com/money_script/money_script.js?marker=ххххх
&exclude=yyy,zzz" type="text/javascript"></script>
  1. Add your ID from the Travelpayouts account for the “marker” parameter.
  2. After a few days, you can check the statistics in the “Reports” section. If users interacted with the affiliate tools, then you will see it in the statistics.

IMPORTANT: During the pages load, the script receives a list of brands you are subscribed to in Travelpayouts. We only process links to the programs with which you subscribed. The more programs you subscribe to in Travelpayouts, the more opportunities you have to earn.

How to Check a Script

You can check the script before installation by executing the command indicated below once in the browser console. After reloading the page, everything will return as it was.

var script = document.createElement('script');
script.onload = function() {
  alert("Script loaded and ready");
};
script.src = 
"https://www.travelpayouts.com/money_script/money_script.js?marker=ххххх";

document.getElementsByTagName('head')[0].appendChild(script);

Optional Parameters

  • Exclude — if you want to exclude some programs, add their IDs to the “exclude” parameter. Each ID should be separated by commas. You can find the program’s ID in the link to the program in the dashboard. For example, link to the Aviasales affiliate program: travelpayouts.com/programs/100. The Aviasales program ID is 100. If you do not want to exclude programs, simply remove this parameter from the script code.
  • Include — if you want to include some programs, add their IDs to the “include” parameter. Each ID should be separated by commas.
