How To Schedule Appointments With WordPress

It’s no secret that WordPress is the most popular and widely used Content Management System in the world today. It’s, therefore, no surprise that an increasing number of businesses require a WordPress booking plugin to facilitate online bookings.

For many service-based businesses, a WordPress booking system should allow for customers to easily book the services that they offer from the availability they set.

Even if you are not a service based business, a WordPress booking plugin could help you to convert website visitors into customers by offering the option to schedule demos or meetings at the click of a button.

A good WordPress booking tool should also be accessible on any device, integrate seamlessly with your own website, and offer 2-way calendar sync with popular calendars such as Google, Outlook, Office 365, and Exchange. Thankfully, the 10to8 WordPress Booking Plugin can do all of this and more!

How To Set Up The 10to8 WordPress Booking Plugin

Embedding 10to8 on your WordPress website is a brilliant way to offer the convenience of online booking, and of course, an opportunity to increase leads, bookings, and sales.

To get started, you first need to simply download the free 10to8 WordPress booking plugin.

Now that the plugin should be installed, select ‘Activate Plugin’ and you are good to go and unleash the full power of the 10to8 WordPress booking system! Exciting, right?

If you have not done so already, then at this stage you will need to create a free account to complete the setup. Once you have a 10to8 account, or if you already have an account then login to it.

Once logged into your account all you need to do is navigate to ‘Online Booking’ followed by ‘WordPress Widgets’ and copy your unique shortcode.
