The calculator itself works just fine. The problem is that when you click “Calculate”, it takes you to a rate page with a HUGE call to action that takes the user to another website to get competing rate quotes from a different company (and there is no way other than CSS or editing the code, to remove it). Ironic that the one screenshot that they don’t show you, is the one with the pop up that promotes their company. Screenshot here: https://ibb.co/i5PbFA
Considering most people looking to download this are wanting to provide real time quotes for mortgage company websites, thats a huge conflict of interest. I get it, its a free plugin (and for them, its a great way to market the developer’s mortgage business by getting links and redirecting potential buyers away from sites who use this plugin, and over to their site). But if you are a mortgage provider and looking to use a plugin to provide real time rate quotes for YOUR clients, this is NOT the one to use if you prefer not to have your clients highjacked by a competitor.
