Appointment Booking Calendar allows you to accept online bookings from a set of available time-slots in a calendar.
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.
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.
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?
