Adding a robust booking system to your WordPress site is arduous for beginners and pros alike. If you were to code a booking system from scratch, it would probably take months, if not years. And it would be an exercise in futility, especially when the wheel has already been invented, and there exist amazing plugins such as Booknetic.
Booknetic is a fantastic appointment and booking plugin for WordPress sites. It’s the perfect solution for businesses such as hotels, gyms, salons, spas, law firms, repair shops, and any other service-based business. The plugin allows your prospects to book appointments and pay easily.
Behind the scenes, Booknetic comes with an intuitive dashboard that makes managing your bookings incredibly easy. You can easily create services, add staff members, choose multiple locations, add payment gateways, and do so much more. In other words, it’s the ideal WordPress booking plugin for the beginner who doesn’t code.
And in today’s review post, we take a closer look at what makes Booknetic tick. We touch on the available features and test-drive the plugin, so you know what to expect. If that sounds great, let us dive in right away.
What is Booknetic?
So, what is Booknetic, and where did it come from? In simple terms, Booknetic is a sleek but powerful booking plugin for WordPress websites. It’s the brainchild of veteran developers FS Code (along with their popular FS Poster auto posting plugin).
The plugin was released on 2nd October 2019, meaning it’s relatively new at the time of writing. That means there is a lot of room for improvement and better features in the future. Still, Booknetic is one of the easiest scheduling plugins you’ll ever use on your booking website.
Considering we’ve reviewed many other WordPress booking plugins in the past, Booknetic doesn’t come with feature bloat, unlike some of its competitors. This means you get an easy to use booking plugin that is also super-fast.
Booknetic is a premium plugin, which means you cannot download it at WordPress.org currently. If they release a free version in the future, I’ll update the post accordingly. If you’d like to test the waters, they offer you a fantastic Booknetic demo on the official website.
Now that we know what we are working with let us discover what Booknetic has to offer in terms of features.
The Booknetic WordPress plugin ships with a sufficient list of tools to get a nice booking system up and running quickly. When you install Booknetic, you will be treated to a fantastic suite of features including, but not limited to:
- A mobile-ready and responsive design that means your booking website will look great on multiple devices
