it complicated to set up and use?
Not at all! Installing and configuring are trivial. Each backend
page includes tooltips and has a link to related documentation
pages in the bottom part.
We tried to make the documentation as detailed as possible to
make your onboarding experience smooth â€“
Search-like booking interface
As proved by many major booking websites,
itâ€™s very convenient for users to pick an
appropriate slot by entering one or more search criteria in a
filter interface â€“ if we take a hairdresser
salon as an example, one may choose a date and a particular
hairdresser and browse through available time slots. Amelia
provides a shortcode which allows displaying the search interface
in 2 clicks:
Catalog view for categories and services
If you have Amelia installed on your WP â€“ you
donâ€™t have to worry about struggling through
adding a separate WordPress page for each service category, each
service, use additional plugins for displaying images of a service,
or organize services in folders. Amelia provides a built-in
interface, where with one shortcode you can show all your service
categories on one page, or optionally a single category, or just a
In some cases users prefer booking in a step-by-step manner,
where they first choose a service and an employee, then a date,
then a time slot, etc. Amelia renders a step-by-step booking wizard
as a neat one-page app, which allows to switch between steps
smoothly. Wizard is added to any page with a single shortcode.
If you donâ€™t want to bother setting up
external payment systems, and pay transaction fees, you can just
use the on-site payments, which means that your customers will pay
in cash when they arrive. Payments data is still stored in the
Amelia implements support for the most popular payment system in
the world â€“ PayPal. Configuration takes just a
couple of clicks, and you can use the Sandbox mode to try it before
you launch it in Production mode.
Stripe payment system becomes more and more popular worldwide.
Amelia has built-in support for this system as well
â€“ and as everything else, configuration just
takes a minute. Stripe allows demo mode before switching to
Informative back-end dashboard
Amelia was built with the focus on whatâ€™s
important to all participants of the booking process. The most
important is the business owner. Thatâ€™s why the
main back-end page of the plugin is the Dashboard, which monitors
all business-critical KPIs in a single one-page control panel,
allowing the business owners and managers to always keep track of
all vital parameters.
Interactive Calendar for Scheduling
Schedule is always best visualized on a calendar view. We worked
hard to prepare a very flexible and detailed calendar view, that
can give you any level of insight that you need
â€“ all services and all employees, or just
particular ones; monthly, weekly, daily views, or more specific
List and Timeline views.
for Multiple Employees
It doesnâ€™t matter if your business is a
one-man-show, or you have 20 employees â€“ Amelia
can support both cases. Each employee can provide a particular set
of services, and had individual schedule, days off, working hours
Support for Multiple Services and Categories
Amelia provides a way to configure a catalog of services and
categories (groups) of services â€“ each service
can have its own price, duration, allow or disallow group
appointments; it is possible to configure buffer time before (time
needed to prepare for an appointment) and buffer time after (time
needed before same employee will be able to accept new customers,
e.g. to rest or clean up).
Support for Appointment Extras (Bonuses)
If you would like to upsell some activities or products to your
customers when they book appointments, you can easily do so with
Amelia. E.g. if youâ€™re providing a guided tour
and would like to sell also a meal during the tour, and several
polaroid photos, and include museum tickets â€“
just add these as Extras (Bonuses):
Support for Multiple Business Locations
Amelia will support you as you grow your business and expand to
multiple business locations. Each location can be added to the
database, employees assigned to locations, and then your customers
will be able to additionally choose a location while they book.
We have a lot of our ideas plans for Amelia plugin
â€“ however we would love it to bring most value
to the end users, so we always listen to the feedback to make it as
useful as possible. If you have an idea, suggestion, or if Amelia
is missing a key feature that you need â€“ please
