For example, you can:\u00a0<\/p>\n\n\n\n<ul style=\"box-sizing: border-box;\">\n<li>\n<strong>Define set options<\/strong>, like fixed time slots for a class, appointment, or guided tour<\/li>\n<li>\n<strong>Let customers choose the times that work best <\/strong>by giving them the flexibility to book whatever range they need, like checking into a hotel<\/li>\n<li>\n<strong>Set certain time periods as off limits and un-bookable<\/strong>, providing yourself a buffer between bookings<\/li>\n<\/ul>\n<p>Perhaps best of all, the plugin integrates seamlessly with your Google calendar. Use the calendar view to see how your day or month is shaping up. Update existing bookings or availability, or filter to view specific services or resources. And if you have customers who insist on calling in to make bookings the old-fashioned way, you can add them manually from the calendar while you\u2019re on the phone.<\/p>\n\n\n<div class=\"wp-block-image\">\n<figure class=\"aligncenter size-large is-resized\" style=\"clear: both; margin: 0; display: table; margin-left: auto; margin-right: auto;\"><a href=\"https:\/\/en-blog.files.wordpress.com\/2022\/05\/screen-shot-2022-05-26-at-12.22.18-pm.png\"><img loading=\"lazy\" data-attachment-id=\"46719\" data-permalink=\"http:\/\/en.blog.wordpress.com\/2022\/06\/08\/take-bookings-set-up-subscriptions-and-automate-your-store-with-new-premium-plugins\/screen-shot-2022-05-26-at-12-22-18-pm\/\" data-orig-file=\"https:\/\/en-blog.files.wordpress.com\/2022\/05\/screen-shot-2022-05-26-at-12.22.18-pm.png\" data-orig-size=\"1234,538\" data-comments-opened=\"1\" data-image-meta='{\"aperture\":\"0\",\"credit\":\"\",\"camera\":\"\",\"caption\":\"\",\"created_timestamp\":\"0\",\"copyright\":\"\",\"focal_length\":\"0\",\"iso\":\"0\",\"shutter_speed\":\"0\",\"title\":\"\",\"orientation\":\"0\"}' data-image-title=\"screen-shot-2022-05-26-at-12.22.18-pm\" data-image-description=\"\" data-image-caption=\"\" data-medium-file=\"https:\/\/en-blog.files.wordpress.com\/2022\/05\/screen-shot-2022-05-26-at-12.22.18-pm.png?w=300\" data-large-file=\"https:\/\/en-blog.files.wordpress.com\/2022\/05\/screen-shot-2022-05-26-at-12.22.18-pm.png?w=1024\" src=\"https:\/\/en-blog.files.wordpress.com\/2022\/05\/screen-shot-2022-05-26-at-12.22.18-pm.png?w=1024\" alt=\"\" class=\"wp-image-46719\" width=\"629\" height=\"274\" style=\"height: auto; max-width: 100%; vertical-align: bottom; border-radius: inherit;\" srcset=\"https:\/\/en-blog.files.wordpress.com\/2022\/05\/screen-shot-2022-05-26-at-12.22.18-pm.png?w=1024 1024w, https:\/\/en-blog.files.wordpress.com\/2022\/05\/screen-shot-2022-05-26-at-12.22.18-pm.png?w=629 629w, https:\/\/en-blog.files.wordpress.com\/2022\/05\/screen-shot-2022-05-26-at-12.22.18-pm.png?w=150 150w, https:\/\/en-blog.files.wordpress.com\/2022\/05\/screen-shot-2022-05-26-at-12.22.18-pm.png?w=300 300w, https:\/\/en-blog.files.wordpress.com\/2022\/05\/screen-shot-2022-05-26-at-12.22.18-pm.png?w=768 768w, https:\/\/en-blog.files.wordpress.com\/2022\/05\/screen-shot-2022-05-26-at-12.22.18-pm.png 1234w\" sizes=\"(max-width: 629px) 100vw, 629px\"><\/a><\/figure>\n<\/div>\n\n\n<p>Whether you\u2019re running a small bed and breakfast, a fishing guide service, or anything in between, WooCommerce Bookings can give you back valuable time, ensuring your customers have a friction-free booking process, which allows you to focus your energies elsewhere.\u00a0<\/p>\n\n\n\n<ul style=\"box-sizing: border-box;\">\n<li>\n<a href=\"https:\/\/themes.woocommerce.com\/hotel\/\" target=\"_blank\" rel=\"noreferrer noopener\">View the live demo<\/a> here.<\/li>\n<li><a href=\"https:\/\/wordpress.com\/plugins\/woocommerce-bookings?utm_source=blog%20&amp;utm_medium=content_mktg%20&amp;utm_campaign=marketplace\">Purchase WooCommerce Bookings<\/a><\/li>\n<\/ul>\n<h2>WooCommerce Subscriptions<\/h2>\n\n\n\n<p>With WooCommerce Subscriptions, customers can subscribe to your products or services and then pay for them at the frequency of their choosing \u2014 weekly, monthly, or even annually. This level of freedom can be a boon to the bottom line, as it easily sets your business up to enjoy the fruits of recurring revenue.\u00a0<\/p>\n\n\n\n<p>Better yet, WooCommerce Subscriptions not only allows you to create and manage products with recurring payments, but you can also introduce a variety of subscriptions for physical or virtual products and services, too. For example, you can offer weekly service subscriptions, create product-of-the-month clubs, or even yearly software billing packages.\u00a0<\/p>\n\n\n<div class=\"wp-block-image\">\n<figure class=\"aligncenter is-resized\" style=\"clear: both; margin: 0; display: table; margin-left: auto; margin-right: auto;\"><img src=\"https:\/\/lh4.googleusercontent.com\/Ww4o1kuL5NPpZZt8mPM53T-prYeBIQjFXhFubVhu1DjEGqdwGROxuDFoOo740ekmjxZFBQo-iQsLun9bMtKEARbfXa1fyJ_oSBNG0uzNZVzPml1Rrrw0ZHfYw3MPehy30eUpkwYwPUrJWdxs\" alt=\"\" width=\"637\" height=\"190\" style=\"height: auto; max-width: 100%; vertical-align: bottom; border-radius: inherit;\"><\/figure>\n<\/div>\n\n\n<p>Additional features include:<\/p>\n\n\n\n<ul style=\"box-sizing: border-box;\">\n<li>Multiple billing schedules available to suit your store\u2019s needs<\/li>\n<li>Integrates with more than 25 payment gateways for automatic recurring payments<\/li>\n<li>Accessible through any WooCommerce payment gateway, allowing for manual renewal payments along with automatic email invoices and receipts<\/li>\n<li>Prevents lost revenue by supporting automatic rebilling on failed subscription payments<\/li>\n<\/ul>\n<p>Additionally, this plugin offers built-in renewal notifications and automatic emails, which makes you and your customers aware of subscription payments being processed.
