Your Schedulista scheduler can be embedded into your own website so that clients can book with you without having to leave your site.  Our dedicated plugin for WordPress sites allows you to embed the scheduler using WordPress shortcode instead of full HTML code.

The WordPress platform offers three options for websites:

  • WordPress.com - a free website service hosted by WordPress 
  • WordPress.com with a paid subscription plan - a website hosted by WordPress that offers more features and flexibility. The ability to add plugins to your site is available with the Business or eCommerce plan subscriptions.
  • WordPress.org - a free website platform that provides the most flexibility to create and develop your own website. WordPress.org websites require a third-party site hosting service like GoDaddy, Namecheap, Bluehost, etc.
