We’ve made it easier to customise the way your customers are booking online.

Booking buttons, links and widgets, oh my!

Allowing your customers to book online is a great way to increase your bookings and reduce staff administration time. If you haven’t got these set up yet, check out our guide on how to enable online bookings.

What’s new?

Previously, you could create a booking button, link or widget to add to your website. You could also create “Book now” buttons for individual locations, services, categories and staff.

You asked for more flexibility to be able to create links and widgets for these options too, and we heard ya! From today we’ve made it possible to create buttons, links and widgets for those individual options and all in one place.

You can also create a combination of those options too, so the possibilities are endless! You’ve got more control over what and how your customers are booking.

  2. Pick the form

    Decide whether or not you’d like it to be a button, link or an embedded widget. Pick the form

  3. Give it a go!

    Test it out using the demo button/link/widget to see how it will look on your website.Preview

  4. Add it to your website

    Copy the code that’s generated and paste this in your website editor. Copy the code
    Pssst! You’ll need to have administrative access to your website to do this. So if you don’t have access or aren’t comfortable with html, just pass the code to your website developer/designer to add.
