How do I integrate my Online Booking link with Facebook’s "Book Now" button?

You can setup your “Book Now” button from a desktop or mobile device.

While using a computer:

 

To configure the “Book Now” button for your Facebook page, you will need to follow the steps below:

 

First, you will need to have a Facebook Business Page that you can access from a web browser. 

 

*Note: If you don’t have your Instagram page already connected to your Facebook account, I would recommend doing it now, and it would be easier to set the “Book Now” for your Instagram page as well.

 

From the left column, scroll down to Settings and click on the Instagram button.

Click on the “Connect account” button and add your Instagram account credentials. After that, a new screen will appear with your account connected.

 

Second, once this process is complete, access your Facebook page again. Tap on the blue “+ Add a button” from the upper right corner” and select the “Book Now” button. Then, click on “Connect Another Tool.”

A list will appear from which you will need to select Appointfix and follow the instructions from the screen.

 

After selecting Appointfix, you will need to sign in with your Appointfix account.

 

*Note: Perhaps you created your account using an email address, or you used the Google, Apple, or Facebook sign-in method. You will need to use the same sign-in method you used to create your account to log in.

 

To see the email address you used to create your account, open Appointfix and go to Menu > Settings > Account.

 

Once you are signed in, Facebook will ask for permission to connect with your account. Follow the instructions from the screen, and the “Book Now” button will be configured.

 

The book button will be available on your Facebook and Instagram accounts.

 

*Note: Perhaps, you would like to have the “Book Now” button only on your Facebook page or your Instagram account. You can configure this from your Facebook page by following the steps below.

 

Once the “Book Now” button is configured, the button on your page will look like in the screenshot below:

 

Click on the “Edit Book Now” button and click on the “Edit Button.”

Select again the “Book Now” button and click on “Connect Another Tool.”

Near the Appointfix name, click on the “MANAGE” button – see the screenshot below.

 

After you click on the “Manage” button, a new screen will appear. There will be two enabled buttons, one for Facebook and the other one for Instagram. If both are enabled, it means the “Book Now” button is working on both pages.

 

If you disable the option for Facebook, the “Book Now” button will no longer appear on your Facebook page.

While using a mobile device:

 

To configure the “Book Now” button on your mobile device, you would need to follow the steps below:

Open the Facebook app and go to your Business Page. Once you access the page, follow the steps below:

  • Tap on ”Add a button.”
  • From the list that appears, select ”Book Now.”
  • Tap on “Connect with another tool.”
  • From the list that appeared, click on the Appointfix app
  • Tap on the “Continue” button

You will be asked to sign in to your Appointfix account. You will need to add your email address and the password you used to create your account.

Perhaps your account was created using an email address, or you used the Google, Apple, or Facebook sign-in method. 

You will need to use the same sign-in method you used to create your account to log in.

To see the email address you used to create your account, open Appointfix and go to Menu > Settings > Account. 

If you created your account using one of these methods (Google, Apple, Facebook), a password was not attached to your account; therefore, you won’t be able to pass the sign-in screen to configure the “Book Now” button.

To fix this situation, you will need to add a password to your Appoinfix profile, therefore, open Appointfix and go to Menu > Settings > Account > Add password.

Once the password is set, you can go back to the Facebook app and sign in using the email address and the new password.

Tap again on the “Continue” button, and the Facebook app will ask for permission to sync with your app. Complete these steps, and the “Book Now” button will appear on your screen.
