There are two ways to connect Online Booking to your business Facebook page:
- Integrate Ovatu directly into your Facebook page
- Create a 'Call to Action' button on your Facebook page and link it to your Ovatu mini-site
Please note, Online Booking needs to be enabled before it can be integrated with Facebook. [See How do I customise my Online Booking settings?]
1. INTEGRATE OVATU DIRECTLY INTO YOUR FACEBOOK PAGE
Please note, Facebook has restrictions on what types of pages are able to use custom tab integrations. For this reason, this option is not available to all users.
Facebook has implemented a policy that affects this integration method. It limits the ability for a page to add a custom tab until they have at least 2,000 followers. You can learn more about that at https://developers.facebook.com/docs/pages/tabs. If you have at least 2,000 followers, you can integrate Ovatu directly into your business Facebook page by choosing Integration > Apps
Locate the Facebook tile:
Click Continue as ...
A list of your Facebook pages will appear
Click on the page that you would like to connect
Locate the Facebook tile again
Click the Actions button and select Add to my Page
Your Online Booking is now connected to you Fabebook business page
A Book Now! button will appear in the left hand menu of your Facebook page
Clicking Book Now! will bring up your Ovatu Online Booking options within your Facebook page
To disconnect your Online Booking from you Facebook page, return to the Facebook tile
Click the Actions button and click Remove from my Page
2. CREATE A 'CALL TO ACTION' BUTTON
This integration method will work on all Facebook business pages. To create a 'Call to Action' button on your Facebook page, visit your Facebook page and locate the 'Call to Action' button, which by default will be set to 'Send Message'
