SalonBiz - Creating "Web" Versions of Services.

We recommend creating duplicate “WEB” versions of your services in SalonBiz, so you can set the SalonBiz service price to the price you sell the appointment for on WebOpenings. This will allow for a seamless checkout process. If you choose to use your existing SalonBiz services there may be a discrepancy between the amount of money WebOpenings collects, and the amount of money being sold by WebOpenings in SalonBiz. If you do not choose to create “WEB” services, you can prevent a discrepancy by manually adjusting each WebOpenings booking according to the discount used when the appointment was booked.

To create a “WEB” version of your service simply add the word “WEB” to the beginning of the service in SalonBiz i.e., “Web Women’s Haircut”

You should price the service in SalonBiz service to match what you intend on selling it for on WebOpenings. To start, we generally recommend a 15-20% price reduction, as these incentives will only be made available if the appointment is unfilled close to its start time, and if it doesn’t occur during a day you consider a peak time.

If you have a level system, a service will most likely vary between providers. You can treat your WebOpenings services just like your standard SalonBiz services by assigning provider specific pricing.

We recommend offering a slimmed down version of your suite of services. WebOpenings isn’t a replacement for your online booking system so there is no need to include a comprehensive list of all your service.

 

Once your services have been created, you’ll need to enable them in SalonBiz Central. See Below for a step by step guide to enabling services for WebOpenings
