  3. Inventory management and reservation management

    1. You can manage inventory management and reservation management of reserved items. The number of stocks is automatically updated and can be managed so that there is no duplicate reservations.

  4. Notification and reminder

    1. You can notify the reservation confirmation, notify the reservation change, and send the reminder. You can provide customers with information on reservations and notify the reservation details and changes.

By using these functions, customers can easily make reservations on the online store, preventing opportunities due to lack of stock.

How to implement the reservation function with SHOPIFY?

SHOPIFY has several ways to implement the reservation function.

  1. Use app

    1. Find an app that provides reservation systems and calendar management tools in the SHOPIFY app store, install and use in the Shopify store.

  2. Custom coding

    1. If you develop your own reservation function, you need to use the SHOPIFY theme file or API for app developers. This allows you to create your own reservation form, calendar, customer management, etc.

  3. Use a third -party reservation system

Of these steps, the easiest way is to use the app. Here are three apps that can implement the reservation function!
