We are a marketplace that connects natural health practitioners with customers seeking their services. At the moment we are looking at enabling them to connect to each other online with a tool such as Zoom and I have a few questions I’d like to ask in order to get a clear view of how we could utilise Zoom for our purposes.
After going through a few topics in this forum I understand the best way would be for us to create an OAuth App that our practitioners would then install in their Zoom account. This would allow us to create meetings on their behalf via our web app, using the Zoom API. If we go down this route, we should be able to create meetings setting the practitioner as the host of the meeting and then using the API to invite their customer via the customer’s email address to that meeting. Is that right?
In terms of the costs involved, if we have N practitioners using our app and we create meetings setting them as hosts using the API, will we be charged N times the monthly fee per host? i.e. if the Pro plan is 13.99 EUR per month, will we be charged that amount times the number of hosts we create meetings for?
The scenario described above would be for 1:1 meetings, but we’re also entertaining the idea of using this to provide our base of practitioners that offer classes (e.g. Yoga instructors) with the ability to offer a 1:N meeting (give a class online). Would you say the Webinars product is a better fit for this scenario? or can we achieve this through Meetings as well?
Thanks in advance for your help!
