White Label App Setup Guide

White Label App by Travelpayouts is a template for creating a mobile app with functionality to search for airline tickets, hotels, and other travel services for iOS and Android. 

With White Label App, you can easily make your own app, just configure the main elements (name, color scheme, icon, etc.), and publish it on Google Play or App Store with your name and logo.

Users will be able to download your app and make bookings from their mobile devices. For each purchase made via your app, you will receive rewards to your Travelpayouts account balance. When the minimum amount on your balance is reached, the earnings are automatically paid out to the account specified in your payout methods.
