A few years ago we published a tutorial to explain how to integrate your WebReserv online booking system to your Facebook page. Back then, it was necessary to use a third party app to do the integration. Today Facebook is able to provide a very good solution that will make that integration much easier.

1. Add a call to action
Login to your Facebook business page as an administrator and click “Add a button”.
2. Select the button type
Facebook gives you a list of options such as “Contact us”, “Call now”. Look for the “Book now” button.
3. Add the WebReserv calendar URL
Once in your account click the Website tab and select the version of the calendar, the calendar options and the appearance. Click here for more information about calendar options and colors.
Click the preview button. You will now see a preview of the booking calendar to the right. If everything looks good, highlight and copy the text in the HTML field.
Now you need to select the URL of the calendar. The URL starts with “https and ends with css=” just like in the example below.
Now, go back to your Facebook page and in the field “Website” add the calendar URL you just selected in WebReserv.
4. Test the Calendar
As an administrator of the page, you can now test the calendar. To do so, click on the new “Book now” button and select “Test button”
Congratulations!!! If the calendar shows, the configuration was correct, your customers will be able to book your products directly on your Facebook page.
If the calendar doesn’t show, no worries, there probably is a solution to it. In that case, feel free to contact us or let us know by publishing a comment below this article. We also invite you to share this article with others by clicking by clicking one of the “share” buttons below.
