How to Install EDD Bookings

Once you purchase EDD Bookings:

  1. You will be redirected to a page on our website called the Purchase Receipt. From this page, you can review the purchase details, download the purchased add-ons, and view your new license keys.
  2. This same Purchase Receipt is sent by email to the email address used during checkout on the eddbookings.com website (not your PayPal email address, unless they are the same).
  3. You will have an account automatically created for you on eddbookings.com. You will be sent an email to create a new password for this account. The username will always be the email address used at checkout (the same one used in 2 above).
  4. Within this account, you will be able to do everything from view your purchase history to manage your licenses and subscriptions. Click here to learn more about your EDD Bookings account.

Once your purchase has gone through and you received the above emails, it's time to install the plugin on your WordPress site.

REMINDER: EDD Bookings is an add-on for the  Easy Digital Downloads plugin and hence requires the plugin to be installed and activated on your WordPress site.

IMPORTANT: EDD Bookings is an add-on for the Easy Digital Downloads plugin and hence requires this plugin to be installed and activated on your WordPress site before EDD Bookings can work.

  2. Click on the Add New button at the top of the page, near the Plugins header.
  3. Now click on the Upload Plugin button at the top of the page, near the Plugins header.
  4. Next, click on the Choose file button that appears below. 
  5. Locate and choose the zip file of the plugin that you just downloaded.
  6. Click on the Install Now button.

An Alternate Method

Use this method only if instructed to by our support team or if you know what you are doing.

For this method, you need to use an FTP client, such as FileZilla.

  1. Download the zip file as explained above, and extract it to your desktop. It should now be a folder.
  2. Connect to your website using your FTP client (ex. FileZilla).
  3. Once connected, go to your website’s Plugins folder, usually located within public_html/wp-content/plugins.
  4. Next, locate the plugin folder you extracted on your computer.
  5. Upload the folder from your computer to your plugins folder.
  6. During the upload process, choose to Overwrite the files, if asked.

Congratulations, your plugin is installed and ready to use!
