The plug in is not as friendly for someone with no experience with something like this. The directions are somewhat vague. I was able to use it and for the most part this is great for me. My issue is with coupons.
Here is the EXACT wording on the website for what they provide:
COUPONS & VOUCHERS
Create coupon/voucher codes for your clients.
The value for coupons can be negative or positive, fixed or percent, once or by day/hour.
You can set date/time when the coupons can be used.
You can create unlimited number of coupons, to use with one or multiple calendars.
The issue is, you can only make one coupon code available to each calendar at a time. So if you have different promotions running for different events, they CANNOT be run at the same time. This makes analyzing what promotions are working best for your company very difficult.
It would be one thing if I was the first to bring this up, but this has been an issue going way back for several clients. The last one I looked at was over 1 year ago. Since it advertises unlimited coupons and DOES NOT say that you cannot have more than one code available on a calendar, then support really needs to get working on getting this corrected. In the meantime, more clarification should be added to your advertisement stating that you can set up as many coupon codes as you like, but you can only use one at a time. Because that makes complete and total sense.
If the coupon issue gets fixed, this review would go from 3 stars to 5 instantly.
great plugin, great support
This is by far the most reliable and flexible booking plugin or WordPress I have found so far. Using it for booking escape rooms I have not found anything it would't do the way I wanted it. As an extra plus, the support department is quick and accurate. Five stars from me!
This is by far the best free booking plugin that is available on WordPress today. I have tried them all at some point. I had to wait for support but I fully accept that as I have the free version - would recommend
After much searching I found this plugin that fit my needs. However, I can only give 3 stars due to the extremely poorly written documentation (provided via the plugin & Sabina's site) regarding making modifications to the colors, layout, verbiage, etc. AND the super long time it took her to actually answer my questions!
Also, I was disappointed to discover after I purchased it from her website that I could have bought it from Envato and that her "tech support" site was for Envato purchases only! (And, yes, I did ask her specifically about my being able to use her tech support site!) Per her instructions, I had to contact her via her website's contact form to get any tech support! She should allow those that purchase from her site to have login access to her tech support site so we can get the same level of care that she provides to those that purchase this plugin from Envato!
Once I got all of the modification instructions from her, I was able to make my desired color, layout, and text changes fairly easily. Too bad it took weeks for her to respond to each question, thus delaying the site from going Live by a couple of months!
Decent plugin but support is not the greatest. I paid for the premium version and also paid DotOnPaper to do some minor customizations. Since then the customizations have stopped working and when I reached out to support and offered to pay them to make some fixes they told me they won't do it and to hire another developer. I understand not wanting to support customization, but it's disappointing to be left high and dry with a broken plugin.
I looked at using WooCommerce bookings, in hind sight this might have been the better course of action. They stand behind their software and have good support.
After trying every free booking plugin available, buying two, I have finished in a day the job I've been trying to do for a week.
Thanks for a great plugin, and excellent documentation, as well as lots of forum info for fine tuning.
Using Pinpoint Booking System with WooCommerce and it really is lovely. Got a wish list for more features to make it a perfect fit, however, it has some great functionality as is.
Would be superb to have MacOS Calendar integration, so am hoping this is in the pipeline.
Very satisfied with response.
A good plugin for what I need (holiday appartment rental). I use the free version. I had some small problem, and the support was quick and efficient.
