Reply To: Build your own website platform or Pay for an expert? I’m looking to start a business for next summer in the tourism market. I want to have a website that will allow for people to book a time slot and pay (I will need to limit the number of cars that come on the property). I have used Squarespace for my husbands site and could probably work out wix or shopify if I needed to. SO my question is: If I did a DYI site which of the platforms has a good flexible booking capability?OR am I best to go with a local company to build it for me?Cheers A


I would recommend using an out of the box system that you can customise to your own look and feel; or a plugin. I would be focussing on something fit for your actual purpose rather than trying to make another system work for you. So a shopping site is probably not what you are after.
