What type of fields can I include in the booking form

The booking form is totally customizable. You can include as many fields as you need, define which are mandatory and also add a label and description for each. The form generator supports input, textarea checkbox and radio buttons. All can be added and moved by a drag and drop interface.

Does this plugin support appointment payment

Can appointments be automatically approved without moderation?

Yes. Our plugin supports both automatic and moderated booking. You can define which behaviour you would prefer for each calendar. When calendar does not have moderated booking the user will receive a confirmation immediately after completing the booking form.

If clients must input payment information at the end of the booking, does the payment go through immediately or can it be held until the booking is approved?

​There are two options:

If booking is moderated then client will be asked to pay ONLY after moderation is confirmed therefore he will not add his credit card information when making the booking but only once booking is approved. When booking is approved an email will be sent to him to pay for booking and if he fails to pay within set amount of time booking will be canceled.

If booking is not moderated then client will be required to pay immediately once making the booking.

    This super responsive plugin is a great option for customer support and requires almost no maintenance. The ability to create and manage multiple calendars is a life-changing option especially when you have business offices in multiple countries and time zones. Booking is so much easier for everyone with this plugin!

  • Top-notch

    We use several calendars (beauty salons), each with their schedule. Not only functional, but the calendar looks pretty good too, and is responsive. Five starts

    Ferrara, Tony
  • Great for booking

    After setting the calendar up, we started charging customers for appointments (requires an add-on, worth it). Minimal maintenance required
