Checkout Types: Single & Multi-Item, Timeline, Gifts

When a customer clicks a Book Now button on your website, it will bring up online checkout. Xola's four online checkout options are detailed below. 

Single Item Checkout
Multi Item Checkout
Timeline Checkout
Gift Checkout


Single Item Checkout (SIC)

  • When a listing is created, HTML code for its Single Item Checkout will automatically be generated in Settings > Button code.
  • When a SIC button is clicked, it pulls up the checkout solely for that listing.
  • On page two of checkout, customers can still select to 'Add another experience' before checking out. This will pull up all of your other visible listings that customers can also book before checking out for these experiences.

Great idea if: You want to give customers the option to book one specific listing.

 

Multi Item Checkout (MIC) 

  • Multi-Item Checkout buttons are always created by you, the seller. Upon creating and saving a button, the HTML code is automatically generated for you to use.
  • When an MIC button is clicked, the customer selects an experience from a selection of experiences, and proceeds to booking.
  • On page two of checkout, the customer can select 'Add another experience', and continue to book additional experiences using a shopping cart style workflow, and then checkout for all experiences in one go.
  • To learn more about creating your own buttons, read our article, Customize Your Checkout.

Great idea if: You have listings that are commonly paired and booked at the same time, or if you would like to promote and present certain listings together. For example, the button below 'Music Button' only shows tours that have to do with music.

 

Timeline Checkout 

  • Timeline Checkout buttons are always created by you, the seller. Upon creating and saving a button, the HTML code is automatically generated for you to use.
  • When a Timeline button is clicked, it will pull up a scrollable timeline that shows upcoming trip times across all of your listings in that button.
  • On page two of checkout, the customer can select 'Add another experience', and continue to book additional experiences using a shopping cart style workflow, and then checkout for all experiences in one go.
  • To learn more about creating your own buttons, read our article, Customize Your Checkout.

Great idea if: You have a few different listings, and would like to show available timeslots to your customers side by side.

 

 

Gift Certificate

  • Gift buttons are always created by you, the seller. Upon creating and saving a button, the HTML code is automatically generated for you to use.
  • When a Gift button is clicked, it will pull up the listings which you sell as gifts (and a custom dollar amount if you choose it). Customers will follow a slightly different checkout to purchase the gift certificate and send it to their recipient. The recipient can use the gift certificate to book at a later date.
