Amazing Booking Plugin

The plugin name says most of it, SIMPLE. The setup and use of the plugin is so simple. The features are amazing and make setting appointments an ease.

I tried two other scheduling plugins that did not work as well and conflicted with the ecommerce shipping plugin. Great plugin from the Simply Schedule Appointments team!
