You can easily add a “Book Now” button to your business’s Facebook page from a computer or from a mobile device (via the Facebook app).

To configure the “Book Now” button for your Facebook page using a computer (via a web browser), follow the steps below. (Scroll down further to find instructions for a mobile device.)

  1. To start, log into your Facebook account and navigate to your Facebook Business Page (if you don’t have an Instagram account for your business or have already connected it to your Facebook Business Page, skip to step 2)

    1. Connecting your Facebook and Instagram accounts for your business is helpful, and allows you to add “Book now” buttons to both pages more easily.  We recommend linking those accounts if you haven’t already, which you can do by doing the following:
      1. From the left column, scroll down to Settings and click on the Instagram button

      2. If you created your account/sign in using Google, Apple, or Facebook, you’ll need to determine the right email address (it will be the one associated with the account on the platform you used to sign in) and set up a password

Online booking buttons will now be available on your Facebook and/or Instagram account pages.

  1. Click the “Edit Book Now” button in the upper right of your Facebook Business Page (you’ll need to be logged in as an account holder to see that option)
    1. Click on the “Edit Book Now” button and click on the “Edit Button”

      1. Note: you also have the option to remove or test buttons from this menu
