Appointment Booking Calendar
[resolved] PayPal enabled no matter what! (6 posts)

    Hello - we are evaluating this plugin and it looks like it will suit our needs. The problem is that no payment is required to set an appointment with us, and PayPal payments are enabled in the plugin with no choice to disable them (grayed checkbox). Can you help? We can't get the first appointment through the system because of this problem.

    Thanks -
    Mitchell_T

    Hi, Please note that the free version is a fully functional plugin originally designed to make appointments via Paypal, the feature to disable the Paypal payment was added later on the premium plugin. We prefer to don't limit the functionality of the free version in order to make it a completely functional product for the purpose that it was originally designed. New features are added to premium plugin in order to cover the time used for these developments: http://wordpress.dwbooster.com/calendars/appointment-booking-calendar

    Thank you for understanding.

    Your descriptions says 'The booking form can be linked to a PayPal payment process.'
    Can does not mean must. Piss me off and fix either your description or plugin!

    @codepeople As many others have mentioned here and in other comments, please make your description clear and straight-forward across your multiple plugins. I find this plugin (and other similar ones you've developed) very useful and one that people are willing to pay for. However, people have become upset and frustrated just because you have neglected to be clear on your description.

    Already made a modification to the description, where said "booking form can be linked" now says "The booking form is linked to a PayPal payment process." This line appears in the first paragraph and also in the features list. Hope this will be clear enough. Thank you for your comments.

    I have spent the most money on plugins that give me a ton of stuff in the free version, then offer some interesting but not totally necessary features in the paid version.

    It creates such goodwill that many people will purchase the higher version just because of the awesomeness of what is offered in the free version.

    If you want to see a shining example of this, check out the s2Member plugin - a membership plugin that is so amazingly full of features in the free version that I just purchased the pro version then the developer version not based on a specific need, but on the goodwill they generated.

    More developers could be getting more money adopting this approach!
