Setting up registration, booking and payment pages

Hi,

Could someone help me but I am not sure I can explain my requirements in this post.

The long and short is that I am a childminder able to look after up to 9 children at home. There are rules about how many under and over 1 yr olds I can look after at the same time.

I often have up to 6 children looking after as regular children. I would like to offer the remaining spaces as a creche service for local parents to use on an adhoc basis.

I need three stages to do this.

1) a registration service where parents put in their details and those of their children. This will generate an account number. If they register and pay an annual fee they can book up to 8 hrs per day. Anyone not paying to be a member can only book up to 4 hrs per day.

2) booking system. I need a booking system where I can put all the spaces available, in advance, for each day and so when parents go to book, the system can work out and confirm if there is availability, send confirmations etc.

3) pre payment. As these are parents that do not use me regularly, there will be no deposit paid as all payments must be made in advance of using the service. The ability to process refunds and give discounts etc is required.

I am a childminder and not a web developer and do not want to set up the rules etc to do this but just want to be presented with an admin page where I can configure and then the system does the rest.

I have tried to research such a facility online but many are for conference type bookings and not for one that is more like a pay-as-you gym system where you register, book a class and then pay. You can get discounts applied etc if you are in a particular group or have a discount code you can use.

Please can you let me know if I can do this simply through Yola or whether you have a partner that I can use.

I have exhausted trying to find a site and someone suggested I just ask you!!!

Many thanks,
Doreen

Hello Doreen

This sounds like the service of our partner FullSlate may be a considerable option for you. There is a widget under the Forms and Appointments folder of your Widget Menu, the name of the widget is "Appointment Book". You can easily embed the FullSlate service into your Yola website by dragging and dropping the widget onto your page. FullSlate offers you 30 day free trial period to test their service.

Hi Stefan,

Thank you but what about the clients registering and setting up an account with you so they can login and book or register and book. The booking and payment system seems to be missing this vital link.

Any chance I could actually talk with someone?

Thanks,
Doreen
