    WordPress WooCommerce Booking and Reservation

    WooCommerce Booking and Reservation: These days customers want to purchase and book everything online including booking tickets, booking courses, doctors’ appointments, etc.

    WooCommerce Booking and Reservation plugin will create a dynamic booking and reservation for the products. This will convert the store into a dynamic event-driven site.

    This plugin introduces a new product type, bookable products. This empowers the store owner to sell bookable services as a product with respect to hourly and daily reservations.

    It will completely match with services such as motels, hotels, events, and tourism.  It will provide two types of bookings for the products that are –Many Bookings in One Day One Booking For Many Days.

    This product type lets admin manage all necessary booking service attributes such as date available, bookable period, slot period, stock value, and price multiplier settings.

    Such products in the store catalog are represented with a native store calendar, allowing for the date and time booking.

    Note- This module will work only for Bookable Products e.g doctor’s appointment, movie booking system, etc.

      Hello Jefrina,
      Currently, in this module, the admin can create booking type products only. If you want us to implement the required feature then this will require extra efforts from our end. Please mail us at support@webkul.com with your complete requirement so that we can assist you accordingly.
      Thanks
