Configure daily or hourly booking and manage appointments for each kind of service. Whether you manage a law office or a beauty salon or you give guitar lessons, you will be able to manage an effective appointment and booking calendar (and also synchronize it with your Google calendar).

Manage hotel bookings, but also travels, experiences, and events. An all-inclusive solution for any kind of business: travel agencies, hotels, B&Bs, campsites, holiday villages, tour operators. With just one plugin, you can let your customers book their stay, their bike, an excursion and the necessary equipment, a guided tour, a visit to a museum, a themed dinner. You can do this and much more.
The most complete tool available online to build a Booking, Renting or Appointment website based on WooCommerce
Do you need to see your doctor or book an appointment at the dentist? Even the usual Friday dinner out at your favorite Italian restaurant is possible only if you remember to book a table in advance. And what about your personal trainer, hairdresser, Spanish lessons, plumber, the house by the seaside you need to book for the weekend…? Our everyday life is full of appointments and services to book.
Let’s admit that our lives would be much easier if all these businesses used an online booking system. This would prevent us from having endless calls and dates written on pieces of paper we undoubtedly lose.
For both business and customers, the best way to manage bookings, rentals, reservations and appointments is through a WooCommerce site enhanced with a complete booking solution, developed to make everything smoother and easier.
YITH Booking for WooCommerce integrates an e-commerce site built using WooCommerce with a powerful booking system which can be used by both customers and vendors: this is ideal for all of those professionals who cannot base their business on sales alone: real estate and travel agencies, hairdressers, doctors, business consultants, etc.
Create unlimited bookable products and services
Would you like to let your customers book a single service (like, for example, an appointment at the dentist) or create a portal with one hundred apartments for rent? YITH Booking & Appointments for WooCommerce is the perfect solution for any kind of product or service offered as a booking, rental, or hire. Add an image to identify the products, a description, and, if you want, the address or location to help your users find you more easily by taking advantage of Google API.
Set the booking duration and if users can book months, days, hours, or minutes
Booking needs change based on the service or product; you can choose to accept only weekly or monthly bookings for apartments and, at the same time, hourly bookings for a counseling service, a therapist, or your personal training session. When creating a booking product, you can define the type of booking and customize the duration, price, maximum number of bookings accepted, and so on. You can accept bookings automatically or set them with the “pending” status and approve them manually. Additionally, you can decide whether to let the user cancel the booking or not.
Set the price for the product or service offered as booking
For each Booking product, you can choose the price that users will have to pay per hour/day/month. You can set a fixed price (e.g. €100 for an apartment) or multiply the cost per person (e.g. €100 for each person staying in the apartment). You can offer last-minute discounts and add unlimited custom prices (cleaning fee, tax, commissions, additional services, etc.).
Create advanced price rules to manage high and low seasons, discounts, etc.
Through the advanced price rules, you can override, increase or decrease the default prices of your booking products.
You can, for example, increase prices in August and December (these can be high seasons for your business) and decrease them during the months with less traffic to encourage users to book products or services. You can offer a discount on bookings with a duration of over 2 weeks or to groups of people. The plugin offers unlimited possibilities.
Set a default availability and create advanced rules to manage closures, sickness, scheduled holidays, etc.
You can configure a booking product without any limitations or enable/disable specific days or times. Do you give cooking lessons only on Tuesday and Thursday from 5 pm to 8 pm and do you want your users to be able to book only these days and time slots? You can do it! Do you want to make the sea view apartment unavailable in August because you want to use it yourself? Or not accept bookings and appointments for two weeks so you can go on vacation? With availability rules, you can manage any scenario.
Create unlimited “person” types to set different prices based on age, role, disability, etc.
Men, women, children, adults, over-60 are just a few categories that you will be able to create. But you can also create a category to define students, people with a specific disability, veterans, loyalty card owners, etc. Add unlimited labels to categorize users booking on your site and apply custom prices.
Create free or paid “resources” for your bookable products
Do you want to book a meeting room and provide your clients with extra resources like a projector, monitors, flipcharts? Or do you want your users to be able to choose the doctor, the legal advisor or the hair stylist they prefer when they book a service on your website? The new “Resources” module is so versatile and flexible that you can manage almost any possible scenario. The only limit is your imagination.
Create unlimited services, free or with a fee, to assign to your booking products
If you have apartments for rent and want to offer free breakfast or a paid cleaning service and extra linen, or if you want to inform customers about the availability of a swimming pool or free parking and offer them the possibility to filter and find apartments with these services only, with just a few clicks, you can create unlimited services, free or with a fee, optional or required, and assign them to book products available on your site.
Create unlimited costs, fixed or multiplied by person, to apply to bookings
Do you want to add a 5$ sign up fee for each person staying in your apartment or a fixed cost of 25$ for cleaning? Through the “Costs” panel, you can create custom costs that will be added to the booking price. You can create ad hoc costs for specific products or global costs to assign to all your booking products.
Create custom search forms and use shortcodes to add them everywhere you want on your site
Let your users search by location (e.g. they can search for apartments available in Paris or Lisbon only) or by services (e.g. search only apartments with a swimming pool or air conditioning). Show or hide “dates” and “person” fields, customize texts of search parameters and copy and paste the shortcode wherever you want on the site; in the header, just like in our demos, in sidebars, within a page, etc.
Monitor all bookings through a dedicated panel
Do you have many bookings and don’t want to lose your mind? The plugin includes a handy table where all bookings are added automatically. You can filter them by date and choose to view them all or only the next arrivals, bookings already paid, or completed, etc.
Monitor bookings in the built-in calendar and auto-sync it with services like Booking, Airbnb and Homeaway
The plugin includes a calendar where you can monitor all the bookings. If you rent apartments or houses on other platforms like Booking, Airbnb, and Homeaway, you can enable the auto-sync to avoid mistakes and overbookings.
Integrate Google Calendar to view and synchronize all your bookings
Do you manage everything with Google Calendar and would like bookings to be automatically added to your calendar? By enabling the integration, all the bookings placed on your site will show in your Google account with just a few clicks.
Manually create bookings and assign them to your users
If you need it you can manually create a booking, choosing the booking product, the dates and assigning the booking to an existing user. You can also create a related order or associate the booking to a specific existing order.
Advanced customization options
Replace the “add to cart” button with a “Book now” button and customize all labels. After the click on the “book now” button you can also redirect users directly to checkout (so they will not be redirected to the default cart page). Customize every detail of the search form and of the booking form on the product page to make your site perfect in every detail.
A wide range of notifications for both admin and user
Stay up-to-date about everything occurring in your shop; the plugin sends automatic notifications both to the admin and customer every time a booking is created, edited, or canceled, whenever the booking status changes and the payment is confirmed. You will also be able to send custom emails before the booking starts and after it ends, deciding in both cases when to send them (for example, an email will be sent one week before the booking starts and the other email will be sent three days after the booking is completed).
Ask users to pay a deposit upfront for their bookings using our YITH WooCommerce Deposits / Down Payments plugin
Thanks to the new integration with our YITH WooCommerce Deposits / Down Payments plugin, you will be able to ask your customers to pay a deposit upfront at the time of booking (e.g. 50%) and request the balance payment of the booking at a later time (for example, one week before the booking starts).
The new Proteo Booking is available for free to easily import the demo content and settings
Take a look at our live demos; they are amazing, right? We have used our free theme Proteo and have developed the “Booking skin” that you can use in your site, by also importing the full demo content.

Here you can find some frequently asked questions about this plugin. If you can't find a reply to your doubts, ask a question: we will reply in a very short time
What happens if a user books a range of days, some of which have been already booked by someone else?
In this case, the booking won't be created since all the days/dates included in the selected range must be available and consecutive. This is valid both for bookings created by users on the frontend and those manually created by the admin.
Is it possible to show the booking form of a product on any page (not just the product page)?
Yes, this is possible, if you use the "Booking form" Gutenberg block. You can read more about this here.
Is it possible to independently show an availability calendar visible on the page without clicking to open it?
Yes, the plugin has an option that allows you to choose between showing the calendar as a dropdown or for it to be embedded. You can manage this from YITH > Booking > Settings > “Customizations”, in the “Calendar style” options, as you can read here.
Does the plugin handle variations?
No, the plugin does not support variations because a bookable product is a different type of product. Therefore they cannot be both bookable and variable.
Yet, being this a wide plugin, you will have different alternatives to the use of standard variations. For example you have a different availability for 2 different rooms (Standard and Suite), you need to create 2 different bookable products so when a user books Standard room, the Suite room will still be available.
In other cases, you can use the “Resources” and set up a specific availability for each resource that will be merged with the product availability. What's very useful is that resources can be shared among multiple products and their availability will always be correctly updated. For example, you can select the trainer in a fitness session and so on.
In other cases, you can use “Services”. By creating a bookable product for the rooms and adding services, for example, services for breakfast, lunch and dinner that can be selected by users during the booking (you can also set an additional price for them). Also, using Persons is another option if you want to have a room for 1 guest or 2 or 3 guests etc.
Is it possible to sync multiple Google Calendars with YITH Multi-Vendor?
The global one; real-time sync (one way) is available ONLY FOR ADMINS
The product one; it could be two-ways and it's NOT in real-time. This is available for each product, so also for Vendors.
In this case, the vendor should create 2 Google Calendars for each product:
1. for synchronizing SITE Bookings
2. for adding MANUAL-added Bookings
Can I allow vendors of my marketplace to create their bookings so customers can book their items?
Yes, to do so, you must use the plugin in combination with the premium version of YITH WooCommerce Multi Vendor. In this way, your vendors can create, manage and sell their own bookable products.
Can discounts be applied to bookable products?
Yes, the plugin allows setting weekly, monthly and last-minute discounts, as you can read about here.
Furthermore, it is possible to decrease (or increase) booking costs according to specific conditions either on global level, as you can see here, or for a specific product, as you can see here.
Can I synchronize my bookable products with an external platform like booking.com?
Yes, the plugin allows this kind of synchronization with external services so to prevent overbookings. You can synchronize them through ICS (iCal) calendars by setting them from the product edit page as described in this section of the documentation.
Is it possible to view the received bookings from the backend?
Yes, the plugin has a dashboard that offers you a complete overview of the bookings registered on your site. From the dashboard, you can see the calendar, check and also edit the booking details, search for a specific bookable product and view the availability. Read more about this dashboard overview here.
Is it possible to set different prices for different days of the week? For example, I want to offer ski equipment from Monday to Thursday at €X and from Friday to Sunday at €Y. And what about having different prices for children?
Yes, this is possible by creating different price rules based on a range of days, read more about it here.
With regards to the age, the plugin allows creating people types (child, adult, senior...) and setting a price for every type, read more about it here.
Can I limit the availability of a bookable product to a fixed number of people? And is it possible to reject further bookings when the limit has been reached?
Yes, this is possible through the option Count people as separated bookings that allows counting every person as a different booking until the number of bookings per unit is reached. After reaching the value you have set, it will be no longer possible to book that product. Read more about it here.
Is it possible to synchronize bookings with my Google calendar?
Yes, you can integrate Google calendar to view all the bookings in your Google Calendar. The booking synchronization is a one-way sync (from your site to Google Calendar). You can read about the options on this page of the documentation.
Is the Booking ID and order ID the same?
No, the order ID and the booking ID are always different. This is because the order ID is assigned by WordPress when the customer completes the order. YITH Booking then creates the Booking object, which includes the booking details, with another ID always assigned by WordPress. This also helps better management of those orders that include more than one bookable product. All IDs are assigned automatically.
