WordPress Appointment Booking Plugin by MotoPress: Key Highlights
Appointment scheduling & booking plugin optimized for quick and easy online reservations.
For Beauty Salons, Medical Centers & Educators
We created this WordPress appointments plugin for all sorts of appointment-based businesses, including:
- Barbershops, hairdressers, and beauty salons
- Tutoring businesses and online classes
- Healthcare & medical centers
- Sports institutions, and fitness instructors.
Accept Payments Online or On-site
Appointments can be confirmed automatically upon booking submission, or you may opt for requesting clients to pay online.
Our scheduler plugin allows you to collect payments on your site via PayPal, Stripe, turn on Direct Bank Transfer, or allow clients to choose to pay on-site. Stripe allows you to also accept payments via Bancontact, iDEAL, Giropay, SEPA Direct Debit, and SOFORT, as well as Apple Pay, Google Pay and Link.
More Payment Gateways with WooCommerce
If you need more than the default range of payment gateways, WooCommerce is the most powerful plugin that can help you add them in clicks. We offer smooth integration with this plugin via the custom-crafted Appointment Booking WooCommerce Payments addon.
Note: It’s a premium extension that is not included in the price of the Appointment Booking plugin.
Add & Customize Unlimited Services
The MotoPress WordPress Appointment Booking plugin allows you to add time slot booking for numerous services. Feel free to set custom service durations and assign employees available for each service:
- Create bookable services of any duration
- Add buffer times to block extra time before and after actual appointments
- Edit service capacity to allow a customer to bring people with them.
Add & Manage Unlimited Employees
Create an employee database and schedule the agenda of the staff with the Appointment WP plugin. Add photos and skills of your employees, assign different services to the relative staff members, and create their personal schedules:
- Create individual staff calendars and optionally connect them to employee’s Google Calendar
- Сustomize the service pricing and duration depending on a staff member
- Assign numerous services and locations to the same person.
Flexible Employee Schedules: Lock Out Hours, Add Breaks & Holidays
The MotoPress WordPress Appointment Booking plugin is equipped with numerous features to help you bend the working schedules of your employees:
- Assign individual schedules to employees and view calendars in a daily mode
- Set lunchtimes and breaks for your employees

Appointment Reminders & Other Notifications
Send automated reminders and other notifications before and after the appointment. Simply designate the sending time, specify recipients and make up an email template.
You can send service-wise emails to customers as well as staff members or specific addresses.
Create Discount Coupons
Build trust with clients by providing them with custom coupons or organizing marketing campaigns.
You can add discount coupons for chosen services, set expiration dates, and for how many days it’s available. You can later track how many coupons were used and even apply coupons if you’re adding payments by hand via the admin panel.
Step-by-step Booking Wizard for Clients
Allow clients to book directly on your site! They’ll see available slots and book them right away, optionally choosing an assistant with the preferred skills/ their favorite service provider.
It’s a straightforward step-by-step process when a client selects a service, a staff member, then a date and submits a booking, not leaving the same page! A sleek, mobile-optimized booking form design delivers truly user-friendly and quick experiences for users on any device.
Multiple Services Bookable at One Go
Allow your customers to add several services to cart during one submission. All appointments can be booked for different services, time, date, and employees – in just one go.
Make it easy for a customer to reserve several appointments without a need to go though the same booking procedure several times.
Manage Appointment Bookings on The Backend
Centralize all WordPress appointments in your dashboard – you can view all incoming bookings with the details, such as total cost, details of booked services (e.g. location, employee, date, time, the number of clients, etc.), and the status (whether a booking is confirmed or not).
You can manually edit personal customer info, change a booking status and update a total service cost with this Appointment Booking WordPress plugin.
Centralized Admin Bookings Calendar
Thanks to the built-in appointment booking calendar, admins, employees, and other team members can quickly and easily view all past and future bookings in their current statuses.
The reservations are centralized in one place and you can access them in a color-coded calendar view, individual booking preview, or timetable in chronological order.
Allow Booking for Groups
Note: an appointment for a group can be made only by one person who submits a reservation.
Clients can book an appointment for a group of people. For example, that can be a yoga class or an escape room reservation for several people at a time.
As an admin, you are free to configure capacity settings in the WordPress scheduler plugin by defining the maximum number of persons possible for one appointment, as well as optionally multiply the service price by the number of people.
Automated Email Notifications
Immediate email notifications associated with bookings and respective automated booking status changes will help you reduce the client waiting time, thus managing booking much faster.
The MotoPress WordPress scheduler plugin allows you to tweak content and style of both admin and customer email notifications.
SMS Appointment Notifications
Reach out to your staff, customers, admins, or any phone number more easily with SMS.
Enable automated SMS notifications upon appointment confirmation, cancelation or payment completion. Set up micro-targeted marketing with any custom SMS alerts or notifications at any time before or after appointments.
Note: This is a premium Twilio SMS extension that is not included in the price of the Appointment Booking plugin.
Smooth Integration with Google Analytics
This plugin easily integrates with Google Analytics 4 to help you track ecommerce data sent through the booking widget!
Measure the number of bookings made, identify the most viewed services, and gain insights into customer behavior. Get data-driven insights and create a better service conversion strategy.
Note: This is a premium Google Analytics extension that is not included in the price of the Appointment Booking plugin.
Holistic WordPress Appointment Booking Toolset
This WordPress appointment scheduler plugin goes beyond providing you with a booking widget. It’s packed with a number of widgets you can use to build your service website further.
For example, there are dedicated widgets for featuring your team members with their contacts and experience, building individual employee profiles, designing lists of services and locations, and more.
Translated into Several Languages
The MotoPress Appointment Booking plugin for WordPress is available in English, Italian, French, German and Spanish.
That means you can simply choose the needed language in your WordPress settings and voila – the plugin is automatically switched to the professional translation, both the backend admin tools and the actual website content sourced by the plugin.

No option to pay for booking?
At the moment there is no payment integration, however, our developers are working on this and hope to release an update with the first payment gateways by the end of the current month.
Hi Davis, can you please confirm if the payment integration has been added?
If yes, can you please clarify if there’s an option where the booking can only be completed after they pay for the service in advance?
Can you please also advise if Skype/Microsoft Teams/Zoom links can be sent to clients after booking an appointment?
Hi Daniel, Yes, since the latest releases it is possible to confirm reservations by Stripe and PayPal. You may send static links via notifications.
How can the booking form be stylized like in the demo? I don’t find any options in the settings.
Hi Niklas, Could you please specify what exactly demo you refer to? Could you share your site example to take a closer look at?
Which theme would you suggest me for a single owner-multiple hotels site?
Hi Fran, It looks like you have commented on the wrong product. I guess you are interested in the Hotel Booking plugin. Do you mean you need your need a website for a single owner who has many various hotels? You may also email us describing your question in more detail.
I don’t see group booking ie. booking for a group lesson? in your demo
I need single and group tutorial booking per time slot.
is that supported?
Hi Craig, At the moment, it is possible to set a capacity parameter for a service to let the customer book an appointment for a group of people. You may learn how it works by reading this post https://motopress.com/blog/service-capacity-appointment-booking-1-3-1/
currently using your Hotel Booking Plug in and we need to be able to book a private function room. These rentals are for less than a full day… is it possible to set up time slots in the Hotel Booking plug in, or is it possible to use the appointment booking plug in and somehow connect them so the private room rental is included in our daily revenue report.
I am interested in this capability as well. Can the appointment and hotel plugin talk to each other?
Thanks for your question. Both plugins are independent of each other and there is no integration between Hotel and Appointment Bookings.
Hello, is it possible to hide services from the form? I only need a simple appointment form. We only have one service and no employees and would like the user to not have to select those options.
Also does this plugin allow for the creation of custom fields? Not looking to rename existing field, but we need to add 4 custom fields.
Hi, The Service field is required and can not be removed from the booking form. There is no possibility to edit the booking confirmation form yet. We will keep your suggestions in mind for further plugin development. Thanks.
I used display CSS property.
very interesting plugin ….
Is the booking data stored directly in the MSQL wordpress database ? Is it also possible to change the times AM / PM to the European time formal 24 hours ?
Are we allowed to use the plugin on multiple websites ?
These points would be very important for us to clarify before we buy the plugin
Thanks for your interest in our plugin. Yes, all the booking details are stored in a database. The time format depends on your WordPress configurations so it is possible to change it. You need to purchase an Unlimited license to be able to use the plugin on multiple websites.
Hi Guys does this integrate with Outlook calendar or Google Calendar?
Hi James, At the moment there is no possibility to sync events with external calendars. We’ll keep your request in mind though.
i just need service and location. can i remove employees?
Hi, you may hide employees from the booking form http://prntscr.com/17m90gu Feel free to test the plugin capabilities at our live demo https://appointment.getmotopress.com/
Are there any ways that i can set the max day for booking?
i.e. User can only book within next 2 months, after 2 months booking is not available. thx
Hi, You may block the days manually only by adding Days Off so you will need to update the blocked dates every day manually.
Thanks for your reply,
however, i want to prevent clients to book the appointment too long (i.e. 3 months later), since there are some uncertainty for the staff that he/she will take leave or day off on the booking date. Thx.
Hi, There is no rule to set how far it is possible to book the service. I’ve added your request to our list of features.
