Booking commerce is a saas based online booking software which allows your customers to book your services in any slot of the day. Booking Commerce will help you manage all your bookings without any hassle at a very low cost and null maintenance.
In this, we have introduced numerous Booking commerce supported add-ons to enhance the functionality of your booking system.
You just need to visit the “Add-ons” section of your booking e-commerce system and there you can install them as per your requirements.
Let’s check out booking commerce supported add-ons one by one.
Restrict booking is a must have addon in your booking commerce system as many times same customers book different slots on the same day but they actually don’t come to the service side so this will not only affect the genuine customers (who are willing to book a slot on the same date) but also affects your income. So in this add-on admin can create 4 types of rules to restrict bookings:
1)Restrict booking if already booked- If you don’t want the same customer to book your same service/product again and again then you can create a rule by choosing this option.
2)Allow bookings based on emails- In this option, Admin can enter the Email IDs of those customers from whom you want bookings.
3)Allow bookings based on token- In this option, Admin can generate tokens from backend and your customers need to enter that token while booking your service. Only then they can make bookings.
4)Allow booking after n number of days- If any customer has already booked your service then they are eligible to book your service again only after the number of days you have entered from this option.
