How to Set Up Booking with Wizard Setup

From this tutorial, you will find out how to set up the JetBooking plugin with a booking wizard.

Before you start, check the tutorial requirements:

Use the wizard from the JetBooking plugin to set a booking for your website. 

Navigate to WordPress Dashboard > Bookings > Set Up to start the setup. 

In the first step, choose the booking mode. Here, you can select either the “Plain mode” or “WooCommerce-based mode” if you have the WooCommerce plugin installed and activated.

The first option lets you set up everything manually, and the second one sets up JetBooking automatically.
