Amelia – Events & Appointments Booking Calendar


Amelia Lite is a free appointment booking WordPress plugin that allows to set up a fully-featured automated booking system on your WordPress website and is a handy tool for small businesses and individuals that depend on stable appointment booking processes.

Amelia Lite was built with newest Enterprise-level of technology both on front-end and back-end, ensuring smooth and slick user experience. Amelia elements are applying single-page-app approach, work without page reloading, and all elements were designed with the mobile first concept in mind – so all the admin and customer interfaces are perfectly responsive.

Amelia Lite supports:

  • Configuring the general settings for the company – General Settings
  • A convenient Calendar view on the back-end, giving a full overview on all the appointments and the statuses – Calendar Admin View
  • Flexible Appointment Management page, with an option to add appointments by your staff from the WordPress admin dashboard – Appointments Admin Page
  • Configuring provider’s details and working schedule – General Settings
  • Key numbers in the Dashboard – Dashboard page
  • Email notifications to the customer and provider when the appointment status changes.

Configuring Amelia Lite to book your first appointment through WordPress is literally a 5-minute job.

  • First, you would need to go to your WordPress’ admin page, open Amelia -> Services and add categories and services, as described here.
  • On the next step, you would need to add a step-by-step booking wizard to one of your posts or pages. To do that, just create a new post or page, or edit an exiting one, and add [ameliabooking] shortcode where you want to add the booking wizard. Save it – and that’s it – now customers can book appointments from your site’s front-end using Amelia Lite!

I am building websites for small businesses that rely solely on free plugins, and this is a great and easy to use booking plugin. It's incredible for solo players. No limitations to the number of appointments, and my non-technical clients love it! Kudos to the team!

I spent months trying to work with support to get this plugin to work. It looked like exactly what I needed but was unreliable. Sometimes the booking widget would load, sometimes it wouldn't. Sometimes data could pull from my database, sometimes it wouldn't. I was back and forth with support constantly until I had to give up and not invest any more time trying to force it. The final straw for me was when I got an email saying they were now charing for premium support even though I purchased the lifetime support 3 months earlier. I'm so disappointed.

Let me start off by saying I like the aesthetics of this plugin. It's clean and has a simple user interface which I like. I also like the the features currently offered in the plugin. With that being said... at the time of writing this review, this plugin does not allow basic functions such as booking packages. Most companies that sell online bookings will also offer packages for sale. To not have this basic feature as part of your pro plugin is crazy to me. I have read online that this feature is in the plan for a future update but I have read posts that are over a year old asking about this feature and it still has not been implemented. That makes me wonder how long it could be before this important feature is added. Another feature that's missing is an employee as well as customer cabinet that allow employees and customers to view and change appointments on the front end of the website. Right now customers are taken to the WordPress back end which I would not allow for my customers. Very unprofessional looking. Another problem I have is that it's very difficult to find service or category ID numbers. If you're using a builder like Elementor and need to enter the shortcodes manually I haven't found a way to easily locate these ID's.

I have tried several booking tools over the years, but this is absolutely the best I've ever used. Will use no other from now on.

Installed it, applied the shortcode to a page, published it and it just constantly shows the loading hourglass symbol, nothing happens. Not going to waist a yearly fee on this plugin as it simply doesn´t work. Uging the Avada theme if that helps?

Amelia is a joy to use. Whilst it is initially focussed on offering services through your website, they’ve recently added the option to have events which are bookable by clients to be displayed on your site as well. This is the main use for me and not only does it work flawlessly and is very easy to maintain, it is also extremely user friendly, stable and superfast. Besides that, customer support is just an absolute joy with very fast and friendly responses and absolutely no problem of thinking with you on any questions you might have. They even think outside the box and offer solutions not presented in the default working of the plugin, just to be sure that the needs of their customer are met. Truly an amazing product with insanely good support. A big winner for me which I will use on many client website to come.
