Use your salon’s Facebook fan page messenger to get reservations with our Salon Booking Chat-bot.
This chat-bot is fully integrated with Salon Booking system on your website and is able to get reservations trough messaging.
In order to make it works you need the following requirements:

Inside your newly created app click Add Products and select Set Up under Messenger.
