BookThatApp can be used to take appointments for people who are offering a service on their Shopify store. In this tutorial we will take you through setting up the app to take appointments where there is a cost for the service.
(Note: To take no charge appointments, please see this tutorial.)
Shopify Product Page
1. Create a Shopify product to represent your Service. ie. Consultation
2. Set the inventory to Do Not Track.
3. Add variants if applicable. ie. Basic Consultation, Extended Consultation
Do not enter the dates or times of the appointment as variants because the schedule will be based off of your stores opening hours. You can view more on adding and editing variants in this article from Shopify.
