Booking System :
You must be wondering how to edit booking form, how to customize fields/services, does it require expertise in programming and so on. Well, that’s not an issue at all as SmartBooking WordPress Theme gives you booking a booking system which takes you through simple 4 steps process.
1) Enter Services : Different business may have different services or products and that’s why it allows you to insert all services on your own so that later on customers could select them while making online bookings. It’s easy to edit, add or remove services from back-end. Along with each service you can also insert price so that customer can see price (for individual services).
2) Add Dates and Dates : This is second step of SmartBooking Theme where you will be asked to specify working days by selecting week days with tick box. Not only that, you can insert start and end date for every month to specify working days for online appointment scheduling. This way user will automatically be shown those days when your business is open. For e.g. if your business is “Closed” on 25th Dec to 31st Dec for some festival then you can choose only 1st Dec to 24th Dec date range. Hence, excluded dates won’t be shown on booking form.
3) Set Time Slots : Most of the business runs with custom time slots and that’s why InkThemes have added a custom time slot feature in this online booking template. As a result you will be able to inset time slot with any gape, for e.g. 10 am to 11 am, or 10:30 to 11 etc. The salon, spa and other business requires this type of time slots to manage online appointments. Here appointment count box is also available so you can reference client’s by their appointment number. For e.g. Mr Joy with appointment count “15”, this is like a token or reference number.
4) PayPal Payment Setting : The SmartBooking Theme brings online payment system where you can inset PayPal id to start collection payments at the time of booking. This is last and forth step of booking system where client will be asked to make advance payments, and once payment is made for services or booking that means it is confirmed. The payment section will display 3 sections (Payment Setting, Manage currency and Other settings) so you can choose payment mode, currency and configure other details.
Apart from above mentioned booking features you will find options to create custom pages to highlight services, products, business details etc. The online booking software for WordPress is packed with blog page, gallery page, contact page (google map, form) and custom widgets so you can use it for all purpose. I would highly recommend this booking theme to business individuals who wants to highlight services and accept online booking.
