Flexible Pricing and Price Hiding – Update April 19th 2017

Also included in this release is the ability to hide the price of your service from your business profile page. This came as a direct request from a business which is currently using BookingHawk.com to manage their diary and take online bookings. The business was concerned that customers were turned off by the price shown on the business profile page. The business in question felt that if a customer were to proceed to he booking page, they would be more inclined to complete the online booking. The thinking behind this was that once the customer is on the second page, they can see the customisable flexible pricing message. As well as this, they are also only one step away from completing the booking and therefore will realise how easy the process is.

Price editing is also part of this update. This means that if someone avails of a discounted booking, you can adjust the price of their appointment. This is useful if you are using BookingHawk.com to track your financials and did-not-arrives. The below video demonstrates how to configure this change.
