How great does it feel when you find an app, website or hack that makes your life easier? You can create that same satisfaction and convenience for your sellers by providing workflow tools in your marketplace that allows them to do their jobs more effectively.
Our Recurring Weekly Event Calendar feature is the perfect workflow tool for service or rental style marketplaces for providers who work off a schedule, like babysitters, rental providers, fitness trainers or business consultants. It allows a service seeker to book a service provider at a certain time on specified days of the week, each week. Since the services these types of providers offer are typically booked on a recurring basis, this feature will help them manage their schedule and availability.
Check out how it works in the video below:
You’re not only adding a valuable convenience for your service providers, you’re also reducing the risk of service providers bypassing your payment system. A common situation that occurs once customer trust is earned, is the service provider will offer their customers cheaper prices if they pay them directly or through other channels outside of your marketplace so they don’t have to factor in the marketplace commission. Recurring transactions are more valuable than one and done transactions, especially for service and rental marketplace platforms.
By adding our Recurring Weekly Event Calendar feature, your marketplace will act as a SaaS (Software as a Service) for your providers. Not only will it connect customers and providers, it’ll also help your providers manage their businesses within your platform and make the booking process easier for customers. Everybody wins!
