How it works
Do your clients keep coming back for the same service? Why not offer them a package deal? They'll love the convenience package deals offer. The optional discount is great for increasing sales of a particular service.
Staff member or administrator creates a new package via backend and optionally books the first appointment for the customer, but the rest of the package services can be scheduled by the customer via customer's user account on your site. As long as they're booked within the set validity period.
Are you launching a new service? You can offer package deals at a discount as a launch special. This will help your new service to gain exposure and help you to increase sales. All while offering your clients convenience.
Note: Packages can only be set up in the back-end. Customers cannot book these from the front-end – yet.
