How to Allow Drop-In Bookings

Drop-In sessions are a great way to give your customers a flavour of what your classes are like without having to commit to booking a full term or course.

To enable trial sessions when creating or editing a Term Group, simply expand the Drop-In Bookings section, and turn on Allow Drop-In Bookings.

You will presented with the following fields...

  • Drop-In Price
    This is the amount that a customer would pay for the drop-in session. If you would like to offer free drop-in sessions, you can set this field to 0.00
  • Auto Drop-In Price
    If you would like to have Bookaby automatically work out how much a drop-in session should cost, you can turn this option on.
    The drop-in price is calculated by taking the price of whole group, and dividing it by the number of sessions within.
  • Single Bookings Per Session
    How many single bookings should be allowed in any one session.
    This field is shared with Trial bookings. You may want to keep this number relatively low, as trial bookings and drop-in bookings count towards the Max. Capacity limit.
  • Bookable Session Count
    When a customer comes to book at drop-in session, they are offered a list of upcoming session dates that they can choose from.
    Setting the Bookable Session Count will restrict how many upcoming session dates are presented to the customer.
    We recommend setting this value low (one or two) as a drop-in booking counts towards capacity, therefore it prevents someone else from booking for the whole/remaining term.
