I can with a question of integration/service.My client need a product/service as book a block of sessions - eg, a client buy a block of 10 session on pilates - then, this client will be able to book himself into. via woocommerce? coupons?
I cannot see where I can add coupons? is that via woocommerce?
Unfortunately, at the moment we don't have a bulk purchase option. We're looking into adding that as a feature, but until then I can offer a work-around.
You can create a service which would be named "Bulk Purchase" for example, and it would cost a certain amount. Then, you would need to create a 100% discount coupon which could be used 9 times, and limit the usage to 9 per customer, like this:
My advice would also be to enable the notifications, so they get an e-mail with the discount coupon, explaining that they need to use the coupon for the remaining 9 sessions:
You would need to add the %coupon_1% placeholder to the e-mail, so they get the coupon code they can use.
After someone books the first appointment, they receive an e-mail with it, and they use it to book the remaining 9 sessions.
I hope this helps.

Thanks for your replied and work-around way. Thats could work.
I'm wondering if there is way to do that via WooCommerce and in automatically way - so we don't have to create manually a coupon every time someone buy a bulk service - I'm trying to figure out an easy way to do that by my client after install and setup all the booking plugin Many thanks, Laura
Hello again Laura
Honestly, I don't know if you'll be able to do that.
We haven't done anything like that yet, and you may need to develop this as a custom solution, which isn't included in the provided support for the plugin.
Hi Aleksandar for your reply.
I'm wondering if they can be done with web hooks - between woocommerce coupons and Amelie coupons code?
Hi again Laura.
Like I mentioned in my previous response - we haven't done anything like that, so I don't know if it can be done like that.
Unfortunately we don't have hooks (action and filters) at the moment. What we have is a few JS hooks that is triggered depends on the view:
window.afterBookingSelectDateAndTime(object_appointment, object_serviceId, object_providerId, object_locationId)
window.afterBookingSelectService(object_appointment, object_serviceId, object_providerId, object_locationId)
window.beforeConfirmBookingLoaded(object_appointment, object_service, object_provider, object_location)
window.afterConfirmBooking(object_appointment, object_service, object_provider, object_location)
JS files are modified (minimized) in public version of plugin (in our development environment is accessible), but unfortunately I can not send you our source code because that is the policy of our company.
All those files that have extension .vue are compressed and minimized in JS files that is very hard and not recommended modifying. So in order to add some other features you can unminify the js and customize it.
If this is not helpful, please let me know and please explain your idea in a bit more detail, and I'll gladly forward the request to our developers. Maybe they can provide some advice.
Thanks for your reply.
Ok, so webhooks, out of the equation.
Now, the idea fully is as the booking system is for a healing/gym place customer can buy a 10 sessions package and book any time.
Currently, there is a way around to do that, via WooCommerce as a product of '10 session pack' then on Amelia a coupon can be generated to use 10 times from there.
Now, all easy, apart for that fact that from Amelia, the coupons are manually added.
Under WooCommerce and with Smart Coupon we can generate as per client buy, so the idea is to take that coupon code that WooCommerce make when someone buys the 10 sessions pack and use it on Amelia, automatically added on a coupon in Amelie, not manually.
Or a way that Amelie plugin has this feature for a service to buy 10 sessions or X sessions then booked that session one by one.
As per bookings, the plugin is used for gyms, spa and consultations (and more), this option to buy a 10 session pack or X sessions pack I think it's a must.
Let me know, and I'm carrying on digging how this can be done automatically.
Unfortunately, other than the workaround I provided in my initial response, there's nothing we can do to make it generate automatically.
I will forward the idea to our development team, so they can look into some possible solutions in the future. Also, if they let me know there's a better workaround I'll inform you right away.
Thanks for your reply.
What about if someone can book multiple appointments or events? I cannot find a way for a client add multiple events - as course - and options to add on the 'shopping cart'
Hi again Laura
No one can book multiple appointments or events in a single session. Even if they were to add one appointment in the WooCommerce's cart, they wouldn't be able to go back to the booking session, and add another product in the cart. The first one would be overwritten.
That's how the plugin works at the moment, and it cannot be changed.
I was looking a solution for other clients, but she need the block of bookings on her courses - thanks for your time to back to me - and maybe a feature for Amelia plugin in future thanks!
