Why is Appointy better than other standalone WordPress scheduling plugins

  • Freemium plan that’s free forever. No credit card required. Affordable pricing that scales as your business grows. No hidden costs. Most WordPress scheduling plugins just provide basic features in the free version and then force you to buy premium add-ons for additional critical features like payments etc. whereas Appointy provides many of these premium features in its free forever version itself. As a result, the standalone WordPress plugins with their add-ons end up being more expensive and bug ridden in the long term over Appointy.

  • Other WordPress scheduling plugins are often plagued by poor support and long issue resolution turnaround times but Appointy being one of the biggest players in the appointment scheduling domain, is proud to offer the highest standards of customer support 24×7 through call/chat/email. You can even request free setup assistance for your business.

  • Other WordPress scheduling plugins and their add-ons often create unnecessary bloat in the WordPress dashboard thus slowing down your website and resulting in compatibility clashes with your theme and other plugins, whereas Appointy is a SaaS application and all the heavy processing is managed by Appointy’s super fast cloud servers so that processing is extremely fast and you never lose your precious data or appointments.

  • Other WordPress scheduling plugins require setting up of server cron jobs and specialized server settings forcing you to either upgrade to higher hosting plans or losing out on bookings/appointment reminders thus eventually affecting your business’s service quality and customer satisfaction. But with Appointy, you can set up scheduling on your website with just the basic shared hosting plan as all the sms/email reminders, are taken care of by Appointy with their efficient cloud service with 99.99% uptime guarantee. This saves you unnecessary hosting costs and ensures professional services to your customers.

  • Other WordPress scheduling plugins creates security vulnerabilities, whereas Appointy being a SaaS application is 100% safe and integrates with your favourite payment processors out of the box even in its free plan.

  • Other WordPress plugins which have their working from within WordPress remain exposed to problems caused by WordPress version updates leading to service downtimes and business losses whereas Appointy being a SaaS is always resistant to compatibility and functionality issues arising out of any such updates, thus ensuring robust performance and business reliability.

  • Other scheduling plugins tend to get limited by features and as your requirements grow along with your business, you are forced to switch platforms which impacts your business and creates new problems. Whereas, Appointy offers enterprise level plans and features so that as your business grows Appointy will be your growth partner throughout your journey.

  • Unlike other plugins, Appointy offers multi platform access to your business settings and administration. You can access Appointy on the go through our Android and iOS apps as well.

  • Unlike other WordPress scheduling plugins, Appointy has several marketing and analytics features so that you can get an edge over your competition.

  • Unlike other WordPress scheduling plugins, Appointy has a very intuitive interface and onboarding process which enables you to get comfortable with the system within the first 5 minutes itself. In case you need help, our 24×7 support desk is always at your disposal. Appointy also provides you with several third party software integrations.

  • Several of the standalone free WordPress plugins compromise your data and the data of your customers and are not GDPR compliant. Appointy being the one of the most trusted and reliable appointment scheduling plugins, is GDPR compliant and provides 100% security for you and your customer’s data.

I have been using this plugin for over a year now (they just helped themselves to a renewal fee from my PayPal account) and honestly have never gotten comfortable with Appointy. The plugin isn’t much more than an i-frame in your web page. The rest of the software runs on the Appointy server and is quite feature-rich … along with all the features comes a learning curve. One must be VERY CAREFUL when setting up a new service as you can easily involve staff members who should not be involved with the service you are adding – once the staff member is on there, I have not found a way to remove them. This means you need to delete the service and then re-add it from scratch. Help? Good luck. If you are in the U.S. / Canada, you’re on the wrong side of the clock for these folks so Chat and Phone is only available for very slim time periods of your typical work day. There is no apparent way to get help by email. I really wanted this to be my “forever solution”, but it’s just too much of a project to figure out the way these software designers think and then construct things in line with their idea of “logical” work flow.

I made the mistake of integrating Appointy with my wife’s business site for bookings three years ago and we never could get it to work properly. Further, they automatically billed my wife’s account for a years worth of premium service two days after she asked them to cancel and have refused to refund the payment. All in all, this is one of the worst businesses I’ve dealt with. Here are the problems we’ve experienced: 1. Many of their paid features are unreliable, particularly the SMS reminders. They basically don’t work. 2. Their service management interface is excessively complicated— Each service has individual hours of availability. This means that if one person offers ten services and wants to change their overall availability, they have to edit each individual service. Blanket changes are difficult/impossible. 3. Their user interface for customers is antiquated. 4. They state that they have a refund policy but they actually do not have a refund policy. They will cancel your account at any time but they refuse to refund any payments that have been processed. 5. They publish and SEO a unique website for each customer that shows up in Google search results, and they refuse to support redirects when a customer migrates away from Appointy. Due to this, even though we’ve cancelled service, her old Appointy site keeps showing up in Google search results, misleading customers. Bottom line is that if you use Appointy, they will take ownership of your online presence, refuse refunds, refuse to support redirects if you migrate away, provide a poor administrative experience for business owners and they advertise and sell features like SMS reminders that don’t work. Frankly, I doubt the veracity of the positive online reviews considering how bad this service is and how many other good options exist. You’ve been warned.
