Please note that this integration with the WCFM Marketplace plugin will only be available in the Business & Enterprise licenses. Here’s what all you will need:

  1. Booking & Appointment plugin for WooCommerce (minimum required version- v5.7.0)
  2. Marketplace Integration for Booking & Appointment plugin (addon)
  3. WCFM – WooCommerce Frontend Manager
  4. WCFM – WooCommerce Multivendor Marketplace

Once you have all of these on your WooCommerce site, you’re good to go.

Booking & Appointment for WooCommerce integration with WCFM Marketplace plugin

With this addon, WCFM vendors will have the flexibility to configure booking settings at the Product level and also view the Bookings. Once the orders are placed, the Vendors can even edit the booking dates for those orders.

1. Booking Settings at the Product level

To configure your booking settings, you will need to go to Marketplace > Products > Add New. Enter the details such as the Name, Product Type, Price, Product Image, etc of your booking product:

Then, scroll down till you find the ‘Booking’ meta box. You can fill up the details of your online booking services under the ‘General’ menu. In it, you will first have to can enable your booking. Then you can choose what kind of booking type you require. Booking types can be based on:

  • Only Days: Single Day, or Multiple Nights
  • Date & Time: Fixed Time, or Duration Based Time
  • Multiple Dates: Dates, or Dates & Fixed Time

You can configure the other settings such as enabling an inline calendar, purchasing without choosing a date, requiring confirmation for the dare, etc. Furthermore, under the ‘Availability’ menu, you can even set the availability of your bookings. Once, you are done, save these settings & click on the ‘Submit’ option!

2. View Bookings 

You can view your bookings as either ‘Bookings’ list or as ‘Calendar View’.

a. Bookings list

To see your bookings, go to Marketplace > Booking > View Bookings. Here’s how all your bookings will appear:

b. Calendar View

To view your bookings in Calendar View, go to Marketplace > Booking > Calendar View. For example, let’s say that you have received one booking for 12th April 2021. This booking for a ‘Guitar lessons for beginners’ will appear as such if you have decided to view your Calendar as ‘Week’ view:

You can even change this view of your Calendar to either month or even day view. Here, you even have the option of adding holidays, just like in Dokan.
