We understand that as a service providers, you want to make sure your clients are having an easy and seamless experience booking you online. If you have not set up your services or items you want your clients to book you for, please check out the Online Booking - Setup first.
Once you have set up what you would like clients to schedule you for, make sure to share your booking link on social media or any business sites where you wants clients to book you. You can find your online booking link by tapping on settings > online booking > share and copy. Your booking link will always be pocketsuite.io/book/username (which you can find in your profile under settings).
Use our Suite Link feature (settings > features > suite link > toggle on) and add all your business pages to one link. Within those business pages, be sure to add your online booking link so clients can easily schedule you.
Whether on mobile or on desktop, your clients will experience a similar client experience.
If you have categories on, this will appear on your main online booking page. If you have categories off, then your list of services and other items will appear in a list form on your main booking page. Each online booking may be slightly different if you don't require credit card, have team members, have attached forms or contracts, etc. You can always preview the online booking before providing the live link to your clients. If you do want to test the online booking experience, we recommend trying it with a friend or family member. We do not recommend testing this on the same account as your business.
