Support » Plugin: Business Directory Plugin - Directories for WordPress » I have literally never given just one star before

  • I just downloaded this because of all the features it claims to have. Trust me when I say it has NONE. Not even paypal. The number one reason I got it was because I wanted to add reviews. But, every single frikkin “module” costs 59.95. That is just ridiculous. Guess it is time for me to start over, despite all my hard work trying to set it up. Plain old *business directories* are a dime a dozen. Again, it doesn’t come with ANYTHING AT ALL!!

    THEIR WP PAGE IS VERY MISLEADING AS THIS PLUGIN DOES NOT INCLUDE ANYTHING YET THEY HAVE IT LISTED AS FREE.

    Hi xlaurenstephens,

    I’m very sorry you had a negative experience here.

    We will have to agree to disagree that Business Directory Plugin has “nothing” because that’s simply not true. We provide a great deal in the free plugin:
    – The ability to create and manage listings
    – The ability to generate SEO for them
    – The ability to collect payments for listings through Authorize.net (yes, for FREE)
    – The ability to create fee plans
    – The ability to upload images and manage them
    – The ability to customize form fields
    – The ability to use a stylized theme or no theme
    – The ability to customize your templates if you prefer a custom look
    – The ability to import and export all of your listings via CSV files
    – Full responsive support
    – A number of widgets for featured, latest and random listings
    – A bunch of shortcodes to display things your way
    – Support for WPML
    – Support for translations and multiple languages

    That’s a stretch to say we’re offering “nothing”. It’s quite a full list of features and the directory is fully functional by itself. The premium modules are nice add-ons to make your directory professional and polished. But you can definitely start without them.

    It’s true that you don’t get everything for free–we have to eat and support our families too. We can’t do that if we give everything away. We provide a solid base plugin that allows you to get started and we have premium features you can add on as you wish, or get a great deal for the entire bundle at 60% off the price of individual modules. We also provide responsive support via email and forum–and we’ve been around for almost 5 years now. Over 60% of the plugins in the repository have been abandoned or neglected by their authors, but not us. The reason we can do that is because we have a premium, supported plugin.

    We’re a good fit for a lot of folks, but not for everyone. I’m sorry that you don’t feel like a small fee is worth the time you’ve spent. Saying we’re a one-star plugin though doesn’t seem to be very fair considering what we have available.

    So I am not alone in this. They are extremely disceptive. Every feature, every important feature that one would want this for in the first place, costs you 60 DOLLARS EACH
