With Service Variations, you can create multiple service variations based on the combination of different options, such as duration, location, size or any custom option you want.
Here are some of the benefits of using Service Variations:
- More options for your clients: You can create multiple variations of your services to suit different needs and preferences.
- Target different segments of your audience: You can set different prices for each variation, making it easier to target different segments of your audience.
- Manage your availability more effectively: You can manage your availability for each variation, so you don’t overbook or underbook your services.
- Streamlined website: You can offer a range of options without cluttering up your website with multiple listings.
Each service variation can have its price, promotional price, availability and – if you’re using third-party bookings – booking URL.
