How to set up a booking appointment on your Instagram page

The most important step before starting to create a booking appointment on your page is to make sure that your business profile is already setup.

  1. Log into Instagram using your phone and then click on Edit Profile.

  2. Scroll down and choose Contact Options.

  3. Click on “Add an action button >”.

  4. Select the Booking Service from the list of options and tap Next in the top right corner.

  5. Follow the steps of the Booking Service app of your choice (you might be asked for the web address of your booking page so make sure you have it ready to copy and paste) and you’re done!
