Before proceed read these notes carefully:
– This add-on requires a paid version of Salon Booking System plugin
Multi-Shops is the official add-on of Salon Booking System plugin and has been designed for those who need to manage multiple branches of their salon from the same website.
With Multi-Shops you can create as many shops as you want. Every shop has its own settings and booking roles even if the front-end booking process is the same for every shop.
When a customer wants to make a reservation he can choose the desired shop first and then proceed with the regular steps.
With Multi-Shops there is a new user role called “Salon Shop manager”. The administrator can assign every single shop to a different “Salon Shop manager”.
This special role can manage all the settings and the reservations of the shop that is been assigned to him.
