Book Now specifying item

Hi I hope you can help. In the Addons, Website Integrations, Droplet sections it is possible to generate a 'Book Now' button on the 'Hosted Booking Page' option in the sidebar.

Is it possible to make this book now button use a certain item/property only - this way it can be used from a specific page on my site just for that item or property without presenting the user with all the items again?

Thanks for any help. :)

    Hi,

    You will need to integrate Checkfront to a specific page of your website and link that page to a button placed anywhere you'd like on the website.

    You can list specific items on a page not necessarily all. When generating the code using Droplet uncheck All items and categories in Display: http://screencast.com/t/9WeM7pS7Wq then you will see the options to choose the exact item you need.

    Best,
  • Hi thanks for the reply. On your screenshot, if you see on the sidebar to the left at the bottom there is 'Hosted Booking Page' which is the one I wanted to use for the booking button... Anyway to make this one point to a specific property/room? Thanks again.

    Hi,

    The Hosted Booking Page is your booking site that is hosted on the Checkfront servers, generally most people do not use this feature but rather they integrate the booking system into their own website using the Droplet method.
    The Droplet method can in fact provide you with the code for you to paste onto your website that will link to a specific category or even a single item.
    You can provide hyperlinks to specific categories or items as well by using URL modifiers along with your hosted page such as this example: https://poplarbb.checkfront.com/reserve/?category_id=4

    There is also the possibility that having a default category set in your configuration will work for you too. You can choose this by going to your Manage->Layout->Booking Page and choosing your default category as shown in this screenshot http://screencast.com/t/UtTpopddFg

    Cheers,

  • Hi thanks. Yes, instead of using Book Now buttons, we have instead used the full widget on each property's page.
