What other business owners have to say

Simply Schedule is a phenomenal solution that has provided all of the features I need. Combined with Gravity Forms, I was able to create fully customizable booking for my customers. The bookings are also synced with Google Calendar and my other sites in real time (preventing double-bookings and schedule conflicts). Payment is also fully integrated within the system without any issues.

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!
