Support » Plugin: WordPress Appointment Booking and Online Scheduling Plugin by Appointy » NOT Free and you need to create an account with a their site

  • After you install this plugin you discover you must register on their site for the plugin to work.

    If you enjoy the uncertainty of relying on a third party to keep your web apps working then this is a good plugin for you.

    I’ve been online since 1991, building basic html sites since 1992, and doing SMB and corporate web sites, apps and marketing since 1996, and using WordPress only since 2008.

    I’ve seen hundreds of third party services come and go–many in the WordPress plugin world.

    I prefer to have fewer third party tools so that I know I can wake up tomorrow and my sites and my client sites will be working.

    WordPress is a great framework and I always like free plugins with advanced services you pay for to get a reliable tool. I strongly dislike being required to keep my site connected to a third party site so that my apps will work.

  • Yeah, well said. Wow. This is insanely expensive and your entire business relies on this website. Who would go for this?

    Hello, good advice. thanks!
    I’m just starting with WP and I’m not sure if AnotherOpus could suggest a reliable alternative for generating agenda/schedulles.
    In any case, thanks (again)!

    BirchPress was good, and fairly responsive on the support end. I ended up having to go with WooCommerce Bookings because of my specific needs, but their support is terribly slow. Both of these cost a pretty fair amount of money.

    I now use TimeTrade.

    Something like $ 49 a year!!! NICE.

    It’s been around a while, syncs with my Google Calendar, and for a slight payment increase I get to white label my TimeTrade.

    BTW I tried using WPMUDev’s (PAID, premium) Appointment calendaring system plugin and it failed, and required numerous trips to support, and even giving them my admin login to set it up–and it still failed.

    I tend to go with things that have been around, tested and work right out of the box–with INTUITIVE setup (as in I almost don’t need to read any instructions), and without needing tech support help to set it up.

    TimeTrade is one of those that just works.

    Warmest,

    Chris

    TimeTrade looks okay, except that it doesn’t accept payments for appointments or services. That’s the really tricky part… integrating services with a shopping cart and checkout system. Since I needed that, WooCommerce was the way to go. It was definitely complicated, though… and Woo’s support system completely sucks; although the individual techs are friendly and helpful, you have wait a week for their response.

    @jim Carlton,

    Hey Jim, I use an appointment to qualify and then send qualified applicants to my subscription and/or one-time payment setups.

    PMP Paid Memberships Pro – Primarily for recurring subscriptions.

    Gravity Forms – Primarily for one-time payments.

    These easily (natively) integrate with Stripe and PayPal. They might integrate with 2Checkout–which is good for international payments if you need it.

    If you’re looking for paid appointments then you can first send people to a Gravity Form one-time payment page, that on payment success then redirects the user to your hidden TimeTrade appointment setting.

    Warmest,

    Chris
