Default time step

A default time step is the bread and butter of the MotoPress WordPress Appointment Booking plugin. Your choice of the default time step directly depends on the duration of your appointments. For example, if you want to create an appointment that lasts 1 h and 10 m, you need to set the default time step to 10 minutes to be able to set this duration.

If there are no appointments or breaks/lunchtimes that last, for example, less than 30 minutes, it makes sense to set a default time step to 30 minutes. However, if you have appointments that last 1 h 40 m, again, a default time step of 10 m is required.

Depending on a time step, you’ll see different time slots when setting appointment durations:

Confirmation mode

Specify the way you want to approve booking requests:

  • Confirm automatically: all requests submitted via the booking wizard are immediately added to your bookings database with the status ‘Confirmed’.
  • By admin manually: you go through all booking requests and change their statuses manually.
  • Confirmation upon payment: if a client submits their booking using any of the payment gateways offered, bookings are immediately added to your bookings database with the status ‘Confirmed’.

Terms & Conditions

If you want clients to accept your policies (terms & conditions) before they can place a booking, set the dedicated Terms & Conditions page (just create a regular WordPress page and select it in the drop-down menu) in these settings.

On the checkout page, clients will need to check the dedicated “I accept the terms & conditions” checkbox.

Allow multibooking

Tick this box if you want to enable clients to add multiple services to cart during one booking procedure. Watch the video below to see the multiservice booking feature in action:

Allow coupons

Tick this box if you want to allow clients to use discount coupon codes on your website.

If this option is selected, the coupon code field will be added to the checkout page of the booking widget irregardless of whether you enabled payment methods. To create coupon codes, go to Appointments > Coupons > Add new.

Currency

Set the default currency and its settings – it’ll be displayed on the individual service pages and at checkout.
