Use a simple HTML booking button code for clients

By | November 8, 2016

Sometimes it is not supported by websites and rarely supported by bulk email companies to insert javascripts like we use for our iFrame and button widgets. In these cases it can be useful to use a simple HTML button code to get your clients attention to go to your booking site at SimplyBook.me and make the appointment.

Here is a simple code you can insert on your site or into your emails to link to your booking site at SimplyBook.me

<a href=”https://THECOMPANYNAME.simplybook.me/” target=_blank><img src=”http://blog.simplybook.me/wp-content/uploads/2014/10/Book-now.jpg” width=YYY></a>

You need to change THECOMPANYNAME, with the company name you use to login, or the name that is in the link on the booking site at SimplyBook.me. You can usually see this in your URL.

Go to your booking page, and in the browser you can find the part to use in the href tag.

Also remark that you can change the size of button by playing with the width, ie you change YYY and put a number instead.

      here we set YYY to 100:   width=100

 

  here we set YYY to 200:   width=200

 

Remark that if you copy the code from this page, it can be good to paste it into notepad and then copy it again from there before you paste it into your page or email as otherwise there may come some additional code that can cause problems.

      It is impossible to call a page and send variables from that call into an iframe on the page. You can set the iFrame to have preselected service and provider, but the button call can not do it.

      Orrrrrr…you could just simply change the code to point the URL local to your site repository?

    Still doesn’t work. I have added many paypal buttons and after copying it onto my site it consistently doesn’t work. Changed the company and size to 200. It is a miniscule square that when clicked is a dead end.
    Love to have this solved. It would look good.

    It’s easier to just create your own button and attaching a link of the url from your booking site because this one doesn’t work for me too.
