Add Online Appointments section
The Online Appointments feature lets you specify what times your services are available. That makes it easy for your customers to book an appointment right on your website. You can list multiple services, set a price for each, and decide whether customers pay ahead of time or at the time of service.
Note: This feature is available only to GoCentral customers with a Business Plus or eCommerce plan. However, you can add appointments, and your plan will be automatically upgraded to the more expensive Business Plus plan.
- Log in to your GoDaddy account and open your product. (Need help opening your product?)
- Click Edit/Edit Site.
- Click the green plus to add a section to your page.

- Enter a new Title if you don't want to use the default Online Appointments.
- Click Manage Appointments to open the Appointments Scheduling window and then click Start Setup.
- Set your Time Zone, uncheck days when your services are not available, set opening and closing times for the other days, and click Next.

Note: If you leave a service set to $0.00, the customer won't be charged — even if you've specified upfront payment.

Note: You'll need to create a Square account if you choose the Require Full Payment Upfront option.
