Seriously? Making people pay to remove a feature?
By , for WP 3.8.1

I don't care what you say in the other reviews "it was the original purpose of the plugin"...bull. I bought one of your plugins before for one of my clients, and in that one, we had to pay to GET the paypal feature on it. And now? we dont need the paypal feature for one of your products, yet you are going to make us pay to not have it.
This plugin was pretty much perfect, and honestly you would have had me sold on having to pay to access custom forms and using it as a widget. I was about 5 minutes away from clicking the "buy" button your premium version, until I looked closer and realized you're actually making people pay to remove something that makes the form useless if they don't want their users to have to pay to book.
Making people pay for extra features = acceptable.
Making people pay to remove "features" that render the form useless unless otherwise paid for = low and incredibly cheap and honestly should not be allowed on the wordpress free plugins area.

Freemium version has hardcoded PayPal
By , for WP 3.8.1

More freemium crap. It's hard coded to PayPal so if you don't use paypal, or don't want people to pay to schedule an appointment at all, you have to upgrade to pro. I've never seen a plugin force you to use paypal. It's usually the other way around. I tried another cal plugin and it works great. Try something else and don't support this crap.

Shady business practices mar a plugin with potential
By ,

I thought this was a great plugin, until I tried to figure out how to turn off PayPal forwarding. I spent a day wrestling with it. I then found out - it is not at all obvious in the plugin, and I'm an experienced developer - that this "feature" of PayPal redirection can only be disabled on the pro version.

Codepeople seem to think that paying to *remove* features is a way to make people buy their products. Instead, it's dishonest, especially since they're not at all upfront about it. Codepeople will never get any of my money, and I'll be sure to warn others off their products too.

Free?
By , for WP 3.5

I think DWBooster claiming this plugin is “free” somewhat disingenuous. It cannot be used unless PayPal activated, for which DWBooster are charging 5% commission. I do not believe that DWBooster cannot make a tiny code to change the PHP thereby allow users to effectively use the “free” plugin. If DWBooster are unable to bear to allow genuine free use of this plugin perhaps DWBooster should withdraw this plugin from WordPress.org?
