What if your clients could schedule their appointments themselves? An appointment calendar can improve your bottom line and make your life easier.
I found the perfect plugin that does just that. It took me weeks of research before I found the best plugin that doesn’t require off-site registration or monthly fees.
It sends email confirmations to the client and to you, allows you to run any kind of business, and schedule anything from hotel rooms to hair salon appointments. It gives you access to Paypal and other gateways (the Pro version only), lets you schedule discounts, coupons, and extras. From the admin, you can manually book appointments or cancel them. You can set the calendar to instantly accept appointments or set it up in a two-step approval process.
This appointment plugin is very robust and quite beautiful. The only caveat is that it was designed by a non-native English language company, and the documentation is useless. There is no tutorial either, so I had to stumble my way through it until I understood how to set it up and use it.
Configuring this plugin is not for the faint of heart, so I recommend that you work with a professional. If you want me to install and configure this plugin for you on your WordPress site, let me know!
You can see the calendar in action when you book a session with me.
