Wix Bookings: Creating the Right Service for Your Business

4 min read
Creating a successful booking site starts with choosing the right service type for your business. Wix Bookings offers three types of services, meant for different needs: appointments, classes, and courses. 
Before starting to create your services, read the information below about each service type and what it's best for.

Do you have a business where clients can book any free time slot in your calendar? If so, then appointments are the right kind of service type for your business. 
Appointments take place whenever a client books a specific time slot. For example, your hair salon may be open for business from 9:00 AM to 7:00 PM and a client can book a session at any available time during the day.
Individual clients typically book appointments, however, groups of people can also book appointments (only when they book the service together). For example, when a group of friends books a private chef to cook for a party.
Appointments are perfect for:
  • Haircuts or nail services
  • Consultations or tutoring sessions
  • Photo shoots

Does your business offer sessions on specific days and times? Do you allow clients to sign up for single sessions? If so, then classes are the right service type for your needs.
An example is a language school that offers a beginner's Spanish class every Monday at 8:00 PM. Clients can join the session they want and don't have to commit to attending more sessions. 
When you create a class you can schedule it on different days, at different times, with different instructors.
Classes are perfect for:
  • Exercise classes
  • Meditation sessions
  • Recurring tours

Do you offer a multi-session course, or a workshop that starts and ends on a particular day? Do clients need to sign up for the entire course and not one session? Then course is the right kind of service type for you. 
Courses are perfect for:
  • Academic courses
  • Language courses
  • Fitness boot-camp
