I tried quite a few plugins before finding BookingPress and I am totally in love with it! Kudos to the team! Very easy interface and fully customizable to match the theme. Would love to try premium version if everything goes well!
September 14, 2022
if you are looking for a fully customisable plugin, go with this one. I have a unique use case of 3 minute slots, which most of other plugin doesn't cover. However this one give completely flexibility. So I am switching to BookingPress from my other booking plugin.

Hi, I installed the free version and noticed a big bug. The bug is also present on your demos For example on the yoga demo. if user clicks on the "next - service" button without having chosen a staff member, the page scrolls up and the calendar is out of view. The same is true at the 2d and 3d step. Finally at the "basic infos" step, if user click on the next button without filling the fields, the page does not scroll up, which is how the interface should work all the time. A surprisingly bad bug that should have been fixed if you plan on having a paid version... And seeing this bug at such a basic level does not inspire trust for the rest of the functionalities

A complete waste of $$. Customer service was snarky, at best! Very limited as to what you can do. ZERO variables. VERY overpriced for the limited capabilities. Refunds are a battle that makes it not worth it. I'm guessing most of the reviews on here are fake, or from friends and employees.

I had a little problem with the installation, something didn't quite work, but they kindly bothered to visit my website and find out what the problem was. They had to make a small modification to a file since my language gave an error that did not allow the plugin to be configured. super fast, very friendly. I recommend them 200%
