I tried as much as 10 different solutions, but this one with the addons proved to be the only booking out there who had it all. Great support as well when needed, very responsive and friendly. Use this plugin!
August 9, 2020
Great plugin. Does what I need it to do for customer. Hourly option was a plus! Tons of options, and if there is not one, they have a bunch of add-ons for plugin. Great support with paid version. Worth the money, add-ons also worth the small price. Some are even free! Good documentation as well.
October 27, 2020
I really gave this a try but randomly the calendar just becomes disabled and shows no booking times. After a successful booking you can't book another appointment at another time (calendar becomes disabled). There is no option to set appointment duration. There is no option to ad custom fields to the booking form... other issues...
June 11, 2020
I've used a few different booking systems for my sites. This by far is the best one. It is incredibly flexible, the documentation is well done, and the features covers almost everything I need. The UI for my customers is so easy. And for the price, you cannot beat it. The Essentials bundle has pretty much everything you need. But what really makes it outstanding is the support. I have put in a few requests and questions, and in minutes I get a response, even on a weekend.
May 28, 2020
This is by far the most flexible booking plugin on the market. It basically turns your site into a fully functioning web app for booking. The support is also amazing and the addons are top notch. You will not be disappointed. A++
January 13, 2020
I purchased and tested more than 10 booking plugins for WordPress before coming across WP Base and while many of them had specific features that I required, none of them were able to fulfil all of my requirements. After testing WP Base out and speaking to Hakan to determine whether the plugin was capable of meeting my requirements - I could not have found a better if I tried. Service has been outstanding, responses to e-mails after hours and on weekends, and even some custom development where my system did not meet the necessary requirements. I would highly recommend this to anyone looking to offer a booking/appointment scheduling service through their WordPress platform.
