  1. I’m planning to use something for inventory rental, I have few questions:

    - does it have possibility for providing discount on specific conditions like reduced price after 1 day, 2 days and so on
    - I couldn’t find any capability on using social media to register (facebook)
    - couldn’t find how to use custom payment methods

    Overall I feel I’m missing something like product catalog here, I just couldn’t understand in the demo how can I get it done.

    I would like to have shopping cart functionality:
    group, subgroup, items, add to cart or reserve button

    is this somehow possible or I can use other plugins for this to work together?
    is multiple item booking possible?

    Thanks,
    Andy

    • to add: it seems to lack also possibility to send an automatic invoice.

      anyhow would appreciate your feedback if you thing this good work for inventory booking?

      • Hello.
        The invoices as itself is not supporting. You can configure the email templates about the new bookings, approval of booking or decline/reject of booking or payment request at the Booking > Settings > Emails page.
        Kind regards.

    • Hello.
      1) If you need to set the cost, which depend from the number of deleted dates for the booking, then it’s possible in the Business Medium and higher versions. You can configure this settings at the Booking > Resources > Cost and rates page by clicking on the “Valuation days” button.
      2) Unfortunately the integrations with third party social service, like Facebook, does not support, yet.
      3) The Business Small and higher versions of the Booking Calendar is support PayPal(Standard and PayPal Pro Hosted Solution, please note it does not the same as PayPal Pro and available not in the all countries), Authorize.Net, Sage Pay and iPay88 payment gateways integrations. You can configure and activate it at the Booking > Settings > Payment page.

      Other payment system or direct credit card or several currencies do not support. Sorry.

      4) The product catalog, groups, multiple bookings and shopping cards functionality does not support. Booking calendar is working in little different way. Please read the general instruction about usage of paid versions of Booking Calendar: http://wpbookingcalendar.com/faq/general-usage-instruction/

  2. Hello I rent a villa in Cancun

    I have several prices based on how long the guest would like to stay: for example 1 night stay they will pay $x, 1 week $y and 1 month stay $z ( the longer they stay the better the discount rate) and I also need to add a refundable security deposit.
    The resource at the moment allows me to view only one source 1 week otherwise it does not dispaly in the booking calendar as reserved or booked (even though I created 3 resources). How can I best manage these required settings

    Please advise.

    • Hello.
      1) You can configure the costs of the booking, which will depend from the number of selected dates for the booking at the Booking > Resources > Cost and rates page by clicking on the “Valuation days” button, near specific booking resources. This features available in the Booking Calendar Business Medium and higher versions.
      2) Unfortunately the “refundable security deposit” does not supported.
      In the Booking Calendar Business Medium and higher versions you can activate and use the deposit payment feature in such way:

      Please read firstly this article about the correct configuration of the “payment link” : http://wpbookingcalendar.com/faq/configure-editing-cancel-payment-bookings-for-visitors/

      Then open the Booking > Settings > Emails page and configure and set active the “Payment request” email.

      Now open the General Booking Settings page and set checked this option: “Deposit payment:” at the “Costs” section.

      You can open the Booking > Resources > Cost and rates page and by clicking the “Deposit amount” button configure the deposit amount value.

      This cost will be show in the payment form, after visitor is made the reservation. So probably its cost will be smaller than fullamount. And your visitors can make the payment of that amount.
      At the admin panel at the booking listing page for the specific booking you will see in the cost field the FULL cost, but inside of the “notes section” (you can activate it by pressing the note button at the right side of the each section), you will see the description similar to this:
      Total cost: $135.00 /deposit: $54.00, balance: $81.00/ – 07.22.2012

      If you are want to request from the visitor to pay the rest of the sum, you are need to make these steps:
      A) Edit the cost of the booking, and enter the sum, which will show at the payment form. You are need to change the cost and then press the save button to save the new cost.
      B) Press the send payment request button to send the email with link to the payment form for the specific booking.

      3) Sorry I am not really understood this “resource at the moment allows me to view only one source 1 week”. Can you explain more detail, what exactly you are meaning by that.

      Please read the general instruction about usage of paid versions of Booking Calendar: http://wpbookingcalendar.com/faq/general-usage-instruction/

  3. Dear Support,

    When the sync with google calendar, smartphone is availble. 5 years you are inform me next version and never coming.
    If it’s not possible for you, please inform and I buy another product that offers this option.
    I have update last years to an uper version, but at the end of my licence support, I will buy another system that offer this option.

    Best regards,

    • Hello.
      Sorry for the long term of waiting this feature.
      The feature of sync with Google Calendar and some other services (like iCal), have the highest priority in the TODO list, right now for us.
      I hope that this feature will be available in the next big update of product.
      Really sorry, that its take so long time for this feature.
      Kind Regards.

  4. Hello,

    I would like to make a suggestion / correction in the file wpdev-booking-class.php. In the line 1460, if the developer set the language manually, like in my case pt-BR, the test in 1462 line will not be satisfied because the file jquery.datepick-pt.js doesn’t exists (or zh, for example).

    So I would suggest to change the code substr($locale,0,2) to substr($locale,0,strlen($locale)) so the problem will be solved.

  5. Hi,

    My client is currently using version 4.0.2 of your system and was wondering if you have made any progress in version 5 with syncing to third party websites such as bookings.com, laterooms etc?

    Many thanks,

    Adam Toon.

  6. I would like to use this booking system for a situation where we have a boat and a car. Is it supported that it is possible to book the car without the boat, but if the boat is booked it should not be possible to book the car as it is needed for towing the boat on the trailer.

    If this is supported what version is needed to get this functionality?

    • Hello.

      1) Here is my suggestions about this situation.

      Firstly, you need to create the booking resources for the car and boat on the Booking > Resources page.
      Let say you creates it like this:
      - Car (ID = 5)
      - Boat (ID = 6)

      For ability to book the car you need to insert the booking shortcode like this (please read how manually to configure Booking Calendar shortcodes here http://wpbookingcalendar.com/help/booking-calendar-shortcodes/) :

      [booking type=5 nummonths=1 agregate='6']

      In this shortcode you can make the bookings of the “Car” (booking resource ID=5), but the calendar of this booking form also set dates as unavailable, if its was booked for the boat, resource with ID=6 (parameter agregate=’6′).

      Separately you can insert the booking form for the booking of the boat:

      [booking type=6 nummonths=1]

      But in this case you will be need to book the car and boat completely separately.

      2) Please check this instruction, my be its will be useful for you: http://wpbookingcalendar.com/faq/booking-many-different-items-via-one-booking-form/

      Kind Regards.

  7. Hi

    Is it possible to sell tours with this plugin?

    For example

    Tour A
    Leaves 11:00, 13:00 and 16:15 on Mondays and Wednesdays

    Tour B
    Leaves 15:00 and 19:00 on Fri Sat Sun

    Etc.

    Is this possible with your plugin?

    If not, is it planned to add this functionality, or do you have another plugin with this functionality?

    Thanks

    • Hello.
      Because you are making the bookings for the tours, probably you need to have the several bookings for the same date (showing the date in calendar available until you are have free “spaces” for your tour), if so please check the Booking Calendar Business Large version, where is possible to make several reservations per specific FULL date(s) by visitors (not time slots). At this version is possible to set capacity of the booking resource, so date(s) in calendar will be available until number of reservations is less then capacity of the booking resource.But in this version is possible to make reservation only for FULL date, not a time slots (time slots in this version only record data in DB, but not play any logic in reservation).
      Please read more info about the booking resources and how to configure them herehttp://wpbookingcalendar.com/help/booking-resource/

      So it’s means that in that version does not possible to make the several bookings for the same times. You will be need to create the separate booking resources for the each of your times and then set capacity to them. Its mean that your visitors firstly need to select the tour for the specific time and only then select the date for a booking and fill the booking form. The selections of those “time tours resources” can be look like here: http://bm.wpbookingcalendar.com/select-resource-2/

      Kind regards.

  8. Hi, 
    I would like to ask if is it possible to change the price of booking according to user role? I need to implement a feature, where certain types of users will have discounts on the bookings. It’s not a problem for me to implement it in the code, however I need to be sure that it would be possible before I buy the plugin as it is a main feature that my client requests. Thank you

    • Hello.
      Unfortunately, the functionality like in your description do not exist in actual versions.
      But in the Booking Calendar Business Large version possible to create the coupons codes for the discounts. It’s mean that you can inform these coupon codes for your users and they can get discounts during creation bookings.
      Kind regards.
