Add Product

The Add Product page in WooCommerce Bookings enables you to create a new bookable product from scratch or by using templates.

Bookable Products differ from simple WooCommerce products because they have specific features designed for businesses that offer time-based services or rental options. This type of product allows customers to book and schedule appointments, rentals, or reservations for specific dates and durations.

Starting from scratch

Instead of using a predefined template, you can create a booking product from a blank template. On the bottom of the Add Product page, there is a section with the heading “Get started from scratch”. Clicking on the button there will bring you to the page to create a new bookable product.

Using Bookings templates

Booking Templates helps simplify and expedite the creation of booking products by offering a selection of carefully crafted predefined templates. This is part of the New User Experience included with WooCommerce Bookings 2.0.0, and you can access the templates by following these steps:

  1. From your Admin dashboard, navigate through WP Admin → Bookings → Add Product
  2. Click on the template card and a popup will appear providing you with all the details on the template.
  3. Use the left and right arrows to navigate through different templates.
  4. When you’ve finalized your template selection, click the Use template button.

When you click on the “Use Template” button, here’s what happens:

  • A booking product is created instantly with a title, description, availability, and cost.
  • The product is published with the “Draft” status, giving you the freedom to review and modify it according to your specific requirements.
  • You’ll be redirected to the “Edit Product” page, where you can make any necessary adjustments to the template.
  • Resources and Person Types are also created dynamically and attached to the bookable product
