Cart Add-on

Important

All add-ons for Bookly require Bookly PRO installed and activated.

Bookly Cart (Add-on) allows your clients to book several appointments per session by placing them in a cart.

The new Book More button will be added to the summary step of the booking process. A click on this button will take the user back to the 1st step while retaining the current booking in the cart.

The admin area will treat these appointments separately. However, the Payments list will show the details of all booked appointments.

Setup and configuration

1. Purchase, download, and activate the Bookly Cart (Add-on) in Plugins.

2. In Settings > Cart, select the columns you want to display in a cart summary before the booking confirmation. Uncheck the box to hide the column. You can also change the order they go in by dragging the sandwich icons.

Settings in Bookly PRO

3. To add a Cart step to your booking form, go to the Appearance section > Step by step form, and check the box next to the Show Cart step option.

In a Cart tab, you can change the position of the Book More button – place it above the cart summary or near the Next button.

Note

Currently, Bookly Cart (Add-on) is not compatible with the new Bookly Search and Services forms.

To display information for every appointment booked on a separate line, use the each block when you edit the text on the Details step. For example:

You have booked

{#each appointments as appointment}

{appointment.service_name} by {appointment.staff_name} at {appointment.appointment_time} on {appointment.appointment_date}

{/each}

4. If you want to send a single Email/SMS notification for the entire booking (for all cart purchases), rather than a separate notification for every appointment booked, use the {cart_info} code in relevant templates (New booking combined notification) when you configure the automated messages in the notifications area.

Note

The {location} and {staff} codes don't work in the combined notifications, because in combined notification there can be several appointments at once, each of which has its own staff member and its own location.

Bookly Cart (Add-on) is available for purchase here.
