Our development team is always working tirelessly to build new features to make our product more sophisticated AND easier to edit listings. Did you know the average merchant has built 5 listings? It’s not surprising these merchants receive more online bookings than those that only create one or two. We have received a lot of great feedback from our merchants that editing listings was way too complex. The three common responses we heard were: (1) it takes too long and I’m super busy, (2) I can’t find the right section to edit, (3) Once I make the changes, I can’t easily see what my customers will see.
Congratulations to all of our 12th Man Promotion Winners! Many merchants were so close coming in at 11 bookings for the month of February. Sorry it was a a short month, unfortunately we have very little say what month the Super Bowl should be in. Ironically, we had 12 winners! Thanks to those companies that participated, we enjoyed the extended celebration. Just maybe your city will win the Super Bowl next year, just maybe…

Parents start booking summer camps on April 1 at 10:12 am (PST). April Fools! Obviously I’m kidding. The procrastinators will plan last minute as usual and the planners will start thinking about summer camps as early as the second week of January. Yes, that was not a typo.
The listing process is very much the same as a traditional PlaceFull listing. The major difference is that the customer doesn’t have to enter their credit card information at checkout, rather they pay on the day of the event. Basically, the customer is just scheduling a day and time. Just to clarify, the word appointment is used interchangeably with reservation in this “How To”. Several merchants have informed us that this feature would be beneficial when they are worried about attendance rates. For example, you may need 10 kids to register for a camp before it runs. If you are not worried about attendance, we recommend charging your customers to decrease cancellation rates. If you are having trouble grasping this concept, think Opentable, but for kids activities.
Whether you are building a listing for a camp or class or selling a ticket for an event, you will normally set a limit on the number of attendees. Our new “sold out” feature will clearly show potential customers that there are no spots available to book or reserve. Additionally, when there are only 3 spots or less remaining, a warning will appear to inform the customer to book before it’s too late.
