I am about to setup a hosted wordpress site for my business however I have one question before I start.
At Christmas we run an event throughout December to allow kids to visit santa. Due to popularity in previous years, we have had to start taking bookings for this. I have looked through various plugins and can't quite find out if they provide the service I'm looking for. I need it to do the following:
The event is open on 11 days throughout December with 5 minute time slots available on those days. We have 4 different ticket types for the event (child 0-12months, Child 1-12, Adult 12+ and Family ticket).
I need a booking system that will allow our customers to:
1. Choose their desired day and time slot. (only one booking per time slot)
2. choose how many children or adults they want for that slot.
3. confirm and pay for the booking via paypal.
4. they should then receive a confirmation via email and this will be used as their ticket.
a lot of the plugins I have found offer some of these services but the main problem I seem to be having is finding one that will allow me to choose what days in December the event will be on and then create 5 minute time slots within those days. Once a customer books that time slot it must become unavailable for anyone else to book.
Any suggestions on plugins or services would be greatly appreciated. This is the only event we run throughout the year so we do not want to spend a lot of money for the service however we are willing to pay a small amount if the functionality suits our event
