Is there any way to send reminder emails to the user for delayed or expired payments for an appointment?

If a customer does not finish a payment, how much time passes before they receive the reminder email?

That’s up to you. You can configure how much time should pass before the reminder email is sent out. This is set in hours in the Payment Options within the plugin settings.

When I enable moderation how does it work in conjunction with the payments add-on?

If you have moderation enabled then moderation comes before payment. The visitor making the appointment will first Need to gain admin approval and second Have to pay for the appointment.

Putting the approval step before the payments step cuts down on the number of refunds that need to be given out to customers who pay but aren’t eligible for appointments.
