If you provide appointment-based services, offering online bookings is a smart way to boost business. Fortunately, WordPress users have access to tools that make this simple. Let’s talk about how to set up bookable services using two plugins – Easy Digital Downloads and EDD Bookings!
When we re-launched EDD Bookings a few weeks back, we did so at version 0.1. This might not be the norm in the WordPress space as most plugin developers and owners tend to release at 1.0. We follow Semantic Versioning – a widely adopted standard for versioning that advocates the use of version numbers that have real meaning.
EDD Bookings is the appointment bookings extension for Easy Digital Downloads.
For a while, it was unavailable for purchase as we re-built it from head to toe. Now it’s back and better than ever.
EDD Bookings is the appointment bookings add-on for Easy Digital Downloads. Around twenty months ago, I began researching the idea of taking the existing EDD Bookings a step further. Today, I can safely say that we have taken it many steps further.
The new website for the EDD Bookings plugin, eddbookings.com, has been launched. Visit the site to learn more about the plugin!
As of last week, we owned and developed three extensions for Easy Digital Downloads, an e-commerce solution for WordPress. Things have now changed, and EDD has acquired one of those extensions. Read on to find out why.
We are in the process of building our EDD Bookings plugin from scratch. Want to know how we’re doing it? We’re sharing our process as we go and looking for your feedback to help us improve on it.
EDD Bookings provides a complete booking system for EDD that allows you to schedule appointments, meetings, consultations and any other calendar and time based events. Meanwhile, FES provides a full-featured marketplace extension. Combine the two and you get a powerful tool with which store owners can operate multi-vendor marketplaces with bookings.
Last week we released a major update for the EDD Bookings plugin – version 2.0.
The plugin had a complete overhaul on the back-end, with many improvements and fixes made on the front-end too. It was major undertaking that has produced a great extension for any existing or potential Easy Digital Downloads customers.
So many businesses need to accept bookings and appointments through their website. Since millions of such websites are based on WordPress, it follows naturally that there is a need for good appointment plugins for WordPress.
We therefore went ahead and tested the options on the market and present you with the best ones we’ve found.
