Adding A Service
Adding a service is simple in Time To Pet! In this help article, we will review the steps to add a service to your account. To add a service, first select the "Services" tab on the sidebar and select "Services & Holidays":
Next, click the "+New Service" button:
We have a great help article detailing all of the aspects of a service here. We will touch on some of the main options in this article. Each service has a default name. This tends to be whatever your service is. We will use "30 Minute Dog Walk":
The default duration is where you choose how much time this type of service takes. Remember, our service was a 30 minute dog walk so we will set this to 30 minutes. That means whenever we schedule this service, it will take 30 minutes on our calendar:
A service also has a default cost that your customer pays you. Keep in mind that you can adjust this rate on a client by client basis if you have special pricing for certain clients:
If you plan on using Time To Pet to track how much you pay your staff members, you can set a Default Staff Rate too. This can be a flat dollar amount or a % of the client rate. We will set this to $10 for our 30 minute dog walk service. This can also be adjusted on a staff by staff basis:
Time To Pet also supports automated extra pet fees. These are fees that are automatically added to your client's invoice when multiple pets are selected. You can also choose whether or not you pay your staff for extra pets here as well. Check out our help article on Extra Pet Fees for more info.
You can also choose whether or not services are taxable (tax rates can be set in Company Settings) or whether the service can be selected by your clients. You may have certain services like a Meet & Greet or Overnight Pet Sitting that you do not want your clients to be able to select.
As a reminder, we also have a full help article on Services as well. We've also put together a short video showing you how to add a service:
