Support » Plugin: WooCommerce Easy Booking » Notice: this is not a free booking plugin

  • Be careful, scam, not a free booking plugin. I’ve suffered this plugin and I had to pay some addons (by mistake) and still does not serve to make hotel reservations, restaurant, camping or similar.
    If you use the free version, it will works only like a calendar, i.e.: if you have 5 rooms and someone book your 5 rooms for 1 week, people will be able go on booking rooms on same dates forever, so it will never count the total rooms you have available for every period.
    Well, if you analyze the brief description of this plugin correctly:
    “This plugins adds an option to WooCommerce products in order to book or rent them. See the plugin demo here.””
    This plugin adds a calendar. If you pay for the addons, you’ll have an option to book… Note: In the case you want someone book a room, be careful because overbooking will occur on your business for next bookings.
    The plugin demo is with all the extra pay (not free) staff: AVAILABILITY CHECK (49€), PRICING FEATURE (29€), DISABLE DATES (29€), DURATION DISCOUNTS (29€)…
    TOTAL 136€ for a “free and easy booking plugin”
    Well, in the case you take the decision to go on, be careful because if you do not pay for:
    1. AVAILABILITY CHECK (49€): People will never know when you have all your hotel / restaurant completely booked and they will be able to go on doing reservetations and you will have to give them the money back because you will not have room for them.
    2. PRICING FEATURE (29€): You will not be able to use different prices depending on the time of the year or if the reservation is for high or low season, so the prices for the rooms will have to be all the year the same
    3. DISABLE DATES (29€): You will not be able to block dates in which you have your business fully booked or in which the business is closed for holidays, Christmas, New Year’s Eve or any other reason. In addition, if the hotel is full (overbooking), nobody will ever find out and people will continue doing repeated reservations on same dates and same rooms that are already booked…
    4. DURATION DISCOUNTS (29€): You will not be able to apply discounts of any kind, such as on sporadic dates or when the bookings are for several days in a row
    In short, do not do like me, read what you install to your client or to your business before you start, to prevent to take a surprise. Before downloading this plugin, consider buying one that is really worth it, I will not give examples because I’m not in favor of creating competition, but there are many plugins out there that for less than € 50 have everything you need for a business reservations and without headaches.

    I didn’t want to answer because we will never agree, but I just want to say this. The plugin description says:

    This plugins adds an option to WooCommerce products in order to book or rent them.

    It adds one or two fields to the product page : a start date and maybe an end date and, if necessary, calculates a new price based on a daily, nightly, weekly or custom basis (E.g. $4 per day / night / week / custom period).

    Which is exactly what it does. Where is the scam?

    Anyway, you forgot to say that if you take all add-ons, it’s only 99€ and not 136€ 🙂

    I wish you find a solution for your website, free or not.

    Regards,
    Natasha
