Create Table Reservations and Managed In-Store Shopping listings

You can easily create a schedule of available appointment time slots using the Appointment service template type.

Here are two examples of Appointment-type service templates:

Note: Once you've created your listings and time slots using these templates, you can edit the recurring time slots from the Calendar page if you need to. Refer to this support article for more details.


Table Reservation

This service template allows you to offer table booking options. It gives you the ability to quickly create a schedule of available time slots (i.e. 60 min time slots between 9am-5pm on Monday - Friday). Table reservations are especially useful when you want to ensure that only customers from the same group are seated on the same table. Instead of paying per person, these customers will be paying to reserve a table.

  1. To add this service template to your account go to Settings > Templates
  2. Switch to the "Ideas" tab.
  3. Search "Table Reservation" and click "Add To My Templates"
  4. Once it's added to your templates, go to the "My Templates" tab and "Create Listing" from this Table Reservation.
  5. You will then create your schedule of available time slots:
  6. Click "Next" and you have the option to set up or skip the Google Calendar section.
  7. You can ignore the next page where it says "Your Scheduling Link is Ready" (you'll have this available to you after) and click "Finish". This will bring you to edit the description, images, and pricing set up.
  8. You can adjust your availability and pricing per table by editing the pricing question on the right side of the listing editor.
  9. Fill in all of the information relating to your event, but pay special attention to these sections:

    Set the maximum number of tables you have available for booking per time slot in the Availability tab.

    You can adjust your availability and pricing per table by editing the pricing question on the right side of the listing editor.
  10. Save changes and make sure to test this on the booking page by clicking on "Preview" in the top right corner of the listing editor.
