WooCommerce has updated AutomateWoo with a new automated booking feature.
The WooCommerce plugin helps shop owners streamline their eCommerce marketing processes, converting and retaining customers using automated marketing.
It also automates and optimizes customer communications, smoothening the follow-up and feedback processes. AutomateWoo 5.3 comes with new features that automate WooCommerce Bookings.
It lets visitors book appointments, reservations, or rentals and keeps them updated about their bookings, making it perfect for booking businesses to improve customer experience and decrease cancellations.
The new feature also enables businesses to upsell customers after they book.
What AutomateWoo Does
AutomateWoo makes life easier for users and the customers happy.

Here are some of what it does:
- The new booking feature helps automate WooCommerce booking.

How AutomateWoo Works
AutomateWoo is a complete solution that automates all aspects of WooCommerce marketing. It takes less effort to set up, giving WooCommerce shop owners complete control of their campaigns.
The solution works using workflows, which comprises Triggers, rules, and Actions.
Triggers start the workflow, for example, when customers complete an order or make a booking. Rules determine the condition the trigger runs, while Action defines what happens when a customer triggers an event.
