Mitchell1 CRM program not only allows for online scheduling but they can also setup a website for you. They can provide you a button on your facebook page that will link to the online scheduling.

Anyone seen any examples of either of these online scheduling options?

You can click on either my facebook page or the website link under my name and see examples of the online scheduler. Be advised there are many website templates to choose from.

I like the online scheduler on your facebook link. On the configuration options, do you think you could show a Calendar with Available Booking times?

If you wanted to have new first time customers pay an online deposit $20, how would you do it?

There's isn't a 2 way link to the Manager schedule, but there have been hints that this is being considered. I've never considered a deposit for new customers. I'm curious what others think about it as there is no mechanism for that within the software. I'm curious if one of the third party cc processors could work with the CRM development team to this end.

I am a little lost as to why one would want a deposit from a new customer. Is this the reserve the spot and to make sure they are serious about showing up? If so I doubt that would be well received from a prospective customer.
