WooCommerce Bookings Availability

WooCommerce Bookings Availability is an add-on for WooCommerce Bookings (separate purchase) that gives customers two ways to view and select Bookings directly from posts and pages with:

  • A calendar block that displays available slots on a weekly or monthly calendar.
  • A schedule block that displays a list of available slots in a day, a week or a month.

Both blocks enable customers to customize the booking if it has options available and add it directly to their cart.

If there are multiple slots available for a product on a date, the customers will be taken to the product page to select their booking date and time on the calendar to book the product.

Customers have different ways to interact with bookings, depending on the Bookings block selected and how it’s configured.

Bookings Calendar

↑ Back to top

Customers are presented with a weekly or monthly calendar that displays available dates for booking. Hovering over any slot displays a popup which contains additional info like date, time, and price. If navigation is enabled, the calendar also has arrows in the top right corner that give customers the ability move forward/back.

Bookings Schedule

↑ Back to top

Customers are shown an ordered list of available slots, each with the product name, time, price and, as in the Calendar block, a button to book or select options.

If the block is configured to only show a certain number of slots, a link to load more items is displayed at the end of the list. Otherwise, new events are auto-loaded as the customer scrolls down.
