Manually adding bookings

To manually add a booking, click on the Add Booking button in the bottom left corner of the booking manager.

This will open a modal that will allow you to make a booking similarly to how a customer would make the booking.

The first time you click on the Add Booking button, you will have to set some options.

Language The language that will be used when sending emails to the customer.

After saving the changes, the calendar and form will appear and you can make the booking.

You can change these options any time by clicking on the Edit Calendar Options at the top of the modal.

Accepting payments for manually added bookings

If you use online payment gateways and have a Secondary Payment Page set up, the online payment gateways will be displayed as payment options.

Selecting any of the online payment options will create a payment link that you can later send to the customer.

When creating a manual booking, the Payment on Arrival and Bank Transfer are always enabled by default.
