Question to indie hackers who run local businesses

Is there a "Shopify for local business"?

I don't mean standard Shopify alternatives like WooCommerce, Wix or Magento. I am after a service that is made specifically for local service business needs, just as Shopify is made for typical e-commerce businesses.

If there is one, it probably:

  • Has a native booking feature with calendar
  • Has no shopping cart feature (or at least puts less emphasis on it)
  • Supports rental & subscription business models

Let me give an example:

Let's say your run a pet grooming shop. You want to allow your customers to schedule appointments and pay for them online. What do you use?
