Using WooCommerce for event / course bookings (40 posts)

    Does anybody know of a solution where it is possible to buy a product as a package of hours which are then bookable in a second moment until the "credit" expires? I guess this would be more of a community function and include that the user profile not only saves user data for the purchase but also residual credits.

    I am happy and using bookable products and tickets, but this feature would be perfect for a client of mine.

    Hi, we just launched Wooagenda.com where you can find the plugin in action, installation, features etc. We are going to launch the sell next week on Thursday. Follow the website, next week the buy Wooprint link will be activated.

    Thanks.

    Why hasn't the buy link been activated yet? I'm really looking forward to this!

    Any update @csorbamedia

    Really surprised that there is no extension for this under WooCommerce extensions.

    I have just purchased your plugin as it sounds like exactly what I have been looking for, only after paying it has redirected me to an error page. I can't find any way to download the plugin. Please can you get in touch asap? as I was planning on using it immediately for a project. Thanks, Mark

    @csorbamedia:

    Hi, I viewed the demo link which brought me to a dutch website were picking dates doesn't work. So I went on to your website woo agenda.com, were the same thing happens: can't pick dates on your calendar other than today. I.e. it doesn't work. Any thoughts on this?

    Also, I wanted to know the price and actually had to start ordering and be redirected to Paypal in order to see want your price tag is. A little odd, don't you think?

    I hope this thing is going to work, because I do think this could be a great product

    @DesignerMark:

    Could you update us if and when you got it to work? thx!

    Hi, I emailed the developer and he emailed me the plugin later that evening.

    However, I was disappointed with it and have found a free plugin since that does basically what I need it to do.

    What I needed was a date picker that allows the user to select the day that they want to attend a free trial of a fitness course. I have a timetable on the site that shows the days and times so all I need to give the user is the ability to select a date.

    The problem with the plugin as far as I can understand is that you have to create a separate post for every date/time you enter which in my case would mean at least 500 separate posts which not only would take hours but would be a nightmare to make small changes to a time.

    I found a Delivery Order Date plugin that puts a datepicker on the checkout page, it's not ideal but with some customisation (change the labels) it suits the purpose.

    I asked the developer for a partial refund as I can't see how it will be economical to use their plugin unless you just want to show a few dates, it's limitations should be made clear in the guide. I had an answer of no and then no reply to my follow up email where I suggested improvements.

    With a bit more work it could be made to be a great plugin but as it is I have no use for it.

    Hope that helps!

    Thx a lot! So that's a no-go :-)

    I am now working on a DIY solution with jQuery's Datepicker. If I can figure out how to restrict the possible dates and get the picked date returned in my checkout page, I'll have what I want. I'll let you know!

    One thing to highlight with the ‘events calendar’ from Tribe is that it has no shortcodes to integrate into products or pages, and the ticketing system has no recurring feature. Oh, and tickets also has no way of sending you or your customers the correct date or indication of the event date purchased.

    Buyer beware if you run a calendar that’s actually running more than a handful of events. Management is a nightmare.

    Support is also the worst i've experienced in 10+ years of developing wordpress websites.
