Configuring Parent Booking Widget

This article will guide you through the process of configuring your booking widget at the parent level.

Things to Know: 

  • Enabling online booking provides clients with the capability to book via the booking widget
  • For services to be bookable online, it's required that staff members are assigned to them and their work hours are configured accordingly

1. Log on to the Parent Account https://www.mytime.com/users/sign_in 

2. Go to Marketing > Website Tools


3. Select the Setup button next to Add Appointment Booking & Purchases to Your Website


You can choose to install a widget or express checkout link

    • Express Checkout - When clients click the Express Checkout Book Now button, they are redirected to your MyTime booking page. The Book Now button is free for everyone with a MyTime account.
    • Booking Widget - The client books directly on your website. When the client clicks on the widget, a popup will appear directly on your website, allowing clients to book (see examples below). Booking through a widget is free for merchants on Premium and Enterprise MyTime subscriptions, and costs $0.75 per transaction for businesses without a Premium subscription.
