Meet your Booking Page.

Your Setmore account comes with a free customer-facing Booking Page that displays your services, staff and availability online. Customers can self-schedule appointments 24/7 without needing to contact you.

When an appointment is booked, the details automatically appear in your Setmore calendar. Your customers also receive personalized email reminders to help reduce no-shows.

The magic of automation.

Answering calls and emails takes up valuable time. Your bookable hours should be spent sharing your skills, not manually confirming appointments.

An online Booking Page eliminates the back-and-forth. Set yours up to accept appointments while you work, after hours and on-the-go.

On the agenda:

  • Elements of your Booking Page
  • Customizing you Booking Page
  • Understanding back-end configurations
  • Taking payments from your Booking Page
  • Turning online traffic into new customers

Booking Page elements.

Let’s start with the essentials. Here’s what your Booking Page features.

Show local time

Cater to customers from all over the world by converting your availability to individual time zones. This feature is ideal for those who offer video services. You can also share your Booking Page in different languages.

Customer logins

Prompt each customer to create a username and password before confirming their appointment. This feature helps prevent duplicate bookings from taking space in your calendar.

customer login setmore
  • With unique logins, customer details update in the background. When an appointment is scheduled, contact information syncs to profiles automatically. Additionally, profiles centralize appointment history and payment data.
  • Switching logins on or making them optional is ideal if you have a regular inflow of customers (e.g. salons)
  • Switching logins off works better for one-time services (e.g. scheduling a job interview)

Visit the Booking Policies menu to discover more options to personalize client scheduling.
