Our Bookings extension provides a complete booking system for Easy Digital Downloads that allows customers to schedule meetings, appointments, consultations and other calendar and time based events. Today we’re excited to announce an update to the Bookings extension that adds an integration with Frontend Submissions, our full-featured marketplace extension. This means that store owners can now operate multi-vendor marketplaces with bookings!
The Bookings extension typically only adds options to the download product edit screen that allow site operators to setup the booking rules. When using Frontend Submissions and the new Bookings plugin, however, a Bookings field will also be registered in the Submission Form edit screen that allows site admins to make the bookings configuration available to vendors via Vendor Dashboard provided by Frontend Submissions.
Site admins can control the exact options they wish for vendors to be able to have access to in the Vendor Dashboard.
Once added to the submission form, vendors will see options that look something like this:
Vendors can enable or disable bookings for a product and then also add the exact details for bookings, including how long each session is, how many sessions are available to book per purchase, how much each session costs. Vendors can also define the exact calendar and time availability for sessions. This means vendors have complete control over the bookings configuration!
Details of bookings made by customers are available to the vendor through the Vendor Dashboard.
By combining Frontend Submissions and Bookings, you can easily operate multi-vendor marketplaces for bookable services, such as personal care, consultations, meetings, and more.

Thanks to the great work of the RebelCode Ltd team for making this integration possible!
