Great Plugin. The component we needed for our site. great, responsive support.
I wish all plugins worked like this. Ya, they get you sucked in with a free version and then you have to upgrade to get what you really need, but it works great and they are awesomely responsive. You get what you pay for and here you get much.
We have used many different WP themes and plugins and its unfortunate that many are not quite as advertised. This is certainly NOT the case with Business Directory Plugin.
We are just at the start of our project but after evaluating the free basic version we are buying the Module Combo Pack. The documentation is really great and my creative director was extremely impressed and said "It is the best of anything he has ever seen for wordpress plugins and themes, bar none!" I can tell you he is pretty tough to impress, so great job!
Highly recommended! Awesome plugin and awesome support from Dave and his developers.
Easy-to-use Business Directory Plugin allows you to build directories for local businesses, schools, churches & non-profits.
The paid version is inexpensive and is worth every penny. You can get more features with the Premium Modules and allows you to have fully-customizable Yelp-like features, including: ratings, reviews, Google maps, category navigation, location-based searches, etc.
You can offer free listings or paid listings with multiple fee plans; you can accept PayPal, PayFast, 2Checkout & Stripe payments.
Excellent support was provided with free upgrades.
We received the most incrdible support at our site http://www.bookedo.com where there were some hosting problems. Solved by Dave!
This is really a great directory plugin with lots of functionality. I have the paid version which is worth every penny, and the support is great. Every time I have problems they are completely sorted out. I highly recommend!
As for the free plugin, it does an ok job. For free there are no complaints as you can't expect miracles for free. But the many add-ons are very expensive. 50$ each. And I advise everyone to read the fine print. Buried in the terms is the little detail that after 1 year and each year there-after you will have to pay to keep it updated. So just be aware that if you spend a lot of time adapting your site to use this plugin - you will not only probably need to add expensive add-ons - but you will continue to pay year after year, or all your time and work will be for nothing.
This really is a simple yet effective FREE plug-in if you're looking to create a business directory. (Something similar to a Yelp)
I used it for a downtown development authority's business directory and it did a great job. +They have great support! I had some technical issues with the last upgrade and they got right on it and solved the problem! We are using the free version keep in mind, so I am sure they are just responsive, if not even more so if you have purchased something!
So if you are looking for a business directory plug-in... try this one! (you won't be sorry)
Not a lot of cash right now but I've been using this plugin for about 3 months now for a free business directory. So far it works awesomely. As soon as the budget allows I will be adding some of the paid features. So Kudos to BDP for releasing this plugin.
PS I have not run into any issues yet.
The Business Directory plugin has been a great tool for us. It works well and is user friendly. There were a couple of things we wanted to change about the plugin, so I submitted a support ticket with the request and within hours the developer got back to me and said they would look into it. A couple of days later they updated the code and now the business directory works like a charm for our needs.
This is a great plugin, with outstanding support! Well worth the money!
