    How it works

    After a simple installation process the website owner can start creating services which can be provided to customers upon request such as events, meetings, lessons, consultations etc. The administrators can easily change and customize settings including individual schedule for each service provider, individual service prices, working days and hours for the whole company and for each service provider separately. They can also view lists of appointments and customers, billing information and payment reports with filters on multiple criteria. The plugin also has an option to create appointments manually through the WP admin panel.

    Bookly offers a unique solution to make the process of booking pleasant for customers – the only thing that is required from the client is to complete 5 easy steps. Intuitive interface as well as clear and attractive design makes this process extremely easy. Customers have possibility to find a convenient time, select service provider, book an appointment and pay for it. One more thing that will please your clients is the ability to view available time slots in their own time zone.

    Let’s say you have installed the Bookly plugin, but its default design doesn’t correspond to the appearance of your website. Our developers took care of everything – you can easily modify the booking form design according to your own needs. It’s possible to adjust the main color and change the fields’ titles and descriptions.

    The plugin offers easy and comfortable way of communication between service providers and customers by using e-mail and SMS notifications. There are several types of notifications for different cases – reminders, confirmations, follow-ups, agendas etc. You may also send notifications to your staff members, for example to give some information about the next agenda or appointment details. Website owner can manage all notification settings in the WP admin panel.

    Customizable calendar allows looking through appointments for either all or particular service provider and can be displayed in three modes, which are month, week and day. Administrators can also create new appointments and edit the existing ones. It is also possible to assign a color to each service for better identification.

    By entering your purchase code in Bookly ⇒ Settings you will get access to Bookly updates that will let you always have the latest version of the plugin.
