Set your retail store up for success with online booking

retail stores

Whether you need a quick 10-minute pickup option, an hour-long general shopping option, both, or more, we’ve got you covered. Need to only allow 5 people in the store at any given time? We can do that too! We can even seamlessly remind your clients of their scheduled shopping times to ensure they come in at the time they planned for. Read on for more information on how you can configure an Online Booking Page for your business and start getting customers back through your doors safely and efficiently!

Create a booking page

First, you’ll need to set up a booking page in Apptoto if you aren’t already using one. Click here or watch this video for more info on creating a booking page, then continue below when that’s established!

Set up multiple service options

To ensure your clients know what kind of shopping is available, you can set up multiple Appointment Types via the Appt Types page of your booking page settings. Each option will offer a custom description and duration to allow your clients to select their needs, whether that be a quick stop-in or an extended browse through your store. This feature can help maximize the number of appointments booked on your calendar, and thus maximize your business!

Set the max occupancy

Live in a state that only allows groups of 5 people or less in public? No problem! On the Availability tab of the booking page settings, you can control exactly how many events can take place at once, and Apptoto will ensure that you don’t have a dozen shoppers roaming your aisles.


Don’t let them forget!

Other than automating the back-and-forth of appointment scheduling, Apptoto booking pages offer seamless integration with our Auto Messages feature, ensuring that your clients are automatically reminded of their scheduled shopping times – we’ll even ask them if they need to cancel or reschedule to allow someone else to fill their empty slot!
