The book a buddy features allows members to book a friend along to a class or course. This can be be a very helpful marketing tool and can in turn lead to new sign-ups.
The buddy does not need to have a profile on Glofox, the booking will be recorded as a +1 under the member profile for the member who made the booking:
The type of membership the member has will determine how payment is taken.
For example, if the member is a Drop in Client and they want to book 2 spaces, they will be charged the drop in rate twice (one for each booking). If the member has valid credits then 2 credits will be deducted.
If the member has an unlimited membership and there is no additional price set in the class price/eligibility, both bookings will be free of charge. Should you wish to take payment for the booking, it is important that the staff on the day are made aware of this.
If the member has only one credit remaining, the credit will be taken for 1st and the drop in rate charged for the 2nd.
To enable this setting:
- Go to settings.
- Select the tab “Booking”.
- Under classes, click on the + button in “Clients can book _ additional friends per event”.
- Click on “Save Changes”.
