And the last question: how the booking looks on the mobile? Is it mobile friendly? Thanks!

Convergine

Unfortunately, at the moment it is not responsive, however we’re 90% done with the responsive update and we hope to release it very soon (like a week or two).

I purchased both items and applied them to my site. Unfortunately, they did not meet my needs. I should have read through the comments as responsive is the ability most needed.

Please consider refunding me for both items. Thank you

Convergine

Hi rdweitzman,

We’re 99% done with responsive functionality – it will be released within week-two. If however you want a refund anyway – please submit ticket to Envato directly, as transaction was between you and them – support.envato.com

Thank you for giving our software a try.

Hi Convergine!

I’m using the BookingWizz script on a client site and now the client has asked me if it would be possible to show the “attendee” name/username in the “montly grid view”, so the other users can easily see who has booked the service for any given date/time (there are two bookings possible each day 7:00-14:00 & 14:00-21:00).

I’m now pondering if this can be done with the WordPress plugin.

Any ideas if this can be made possible?

Thanks for a very handy booking solution! =)

Many thanks for the info Convergine, this makes me very happy! =D

Unfortunately I’m not that familiar with php, should I put the question in your support forum and someone could maybe tell me exactly where and what to write?

Convergine

Unfortunately, we won’t be able to provide copy/paste instructions for this.

Ohh…ok. =´(

Hi,

I have a couple of questions on the plugin before I purchase it, just to be sure it will meet my client requirements. So here is what I need:

I have a couple of condos for rent on a weekly basis. People have to book one or more weeks, and pay $500,00 for each week they book, no matter how much is the full price. More important, I need to have the payment processed on my website (I do have a SSL certificate, and a PayPal Pro account), and not being redirected on PayPal. Finally, I would need to manage several resources, and manage different prices for each, according to the season.

From what I’ve read, it looks like I need this plugin, as well as “BookingWizz Credit Card Payments”, am I right? And would it be OK for what I need to do?

Thanks for your help!

Thanks for your answer!

Actually let’s take an example. Let’s say that Condo #1 is $1000,00 a week, and Condo #2 is $2000,00 a week. If I want to book a week in Condo #1, I have to pay $500,00. If I want to book 2 weeks in Condo #2, I’ll have to pay $1000,00 (2 times $500,00). Is my question more clear now? Thanks!

And yes, I do have a WordPress site, so I’ll go with the 3 plugins if I can have my ”$500,00 payment” for each resource.

Hi Matt,

Unfortunately, it won’t work like this without custom development. If you’re interested – we can provide a quote, just send us an email through codecanyon profile form.

OK I will, thanks!

When will this WordPress version be made “Responsive” for phones ?

Convergine

You can demo convergine.com/scripts/booking/ for the moment. WP preview will be updated within next couple of days.

turner2f

That one did not seem responsive.

Is the Pop-Up responsive too?

Convergine

It is, just rechecked it. Which phone did you use ?

On mobile phones popup is replaced with the standalone page, fitter to the screen. Again, this is how it currently operates on the link I provided above – try booking something on that page with your phone.

Yes after several attempts OVER years as a period of time. installing the program and its utter failure over version after version on wamp’s lamp’s and most conceivable platforms. I have come to the conclusion that this software is OF no use PERIOD. it fails to do anything that it says it will and the company gives less than adequate documentation and fails to release versions that don’t fall under the Mysql depreciation rules for security, when confronted by this they tell you to find a new hosting company or Use a LESS SECURE version off PHP/MYSQL. this is unacceptable and I find it to be a total and complete failure of this already super flawed non working software. Good luck in you endeavor with this incompetent and snooty company… I’m done with it and them!

Hi chancenugent,

I’m not sure where this is coming from chancenugent. The only email conversation we had with you is dated November 2011 and you asked question about php warning error – and we replied to you with a simple fix. Your forum account doesn’t have any topics/posts as well, so again, I’m not even sure if you’re posting this on the correct product comments page (?!)

However, we never claimed that our software will work on local servers like WAMP/LAMP simply because in 99% cases such servers are configured NOT like your average hosting account and it brings a lot of overhead from customers who don’t know how to configure it properly. When customer claims that software is not working and it turns out to be installed on local server – when the same customer upload our software to normal hosting account – it “magically” starts working just fine. That’s the main reason why we don’t support such “platforms”.

In regards to documentation – last 3 versions of BookingWizz were released with a 100+ page PDF manual, and an “in-app” documentation in which we tried to cover all the aspects, including frequently requested changes and asked questions. We saw pretty good response from our customers about new documentation… perhaps you didn’t re-download the files with new docs ?

I’d love to look into the issues you had with “less secure version of php/mysql suggestion” – if you could send me a link or reference to where we had suggested such move to info @ convergine.com – again, I don’t recollect such suggestion from me or my team. The only time when we suggested somebody to use different hosting is where customer had PHP 5.5 which officially stopped supporting mysql extension and forces to use PDO_mysql extension. We had suggested to switch to hosting with php 5.4 which is standard most common version at the moment – but again, it wasn’t you, it was different customer on the support forum.

Switching to PDO_mysql extension requires a lot of adjustments to whole BookingWizz line of products, and it is scheduled, but it’s not an urgent update, simply because php 5.5 is not standard yet, and we have seen only 1! customer who had php 5.5 and had issues.

Again, I’d love to look into the issues you had chancenugent, and try to resolve them. If you’re interested – please contact me directly through email – info @ convergine.com

Hi there,

I’ve bought both the bookingwizz products, the wordpress addon and the main one. Now that I’ve got it all set up I can’t seem to see a payment function and it dawns on me that it isn’t included. For some reason I thought it had an inbuilt PayPal system.

So what do I do from here, I notice you’ve got further addons for the WordPress BookingWizz addon, am I going to have to buy another addon for payments?

Thanks, Haroon Ghazni

Hi, I am looking for a booking system that I can use to

a/ display the attendees who have booked for an event. b/ if an attendee wants to remove their name from an event allow them to cancel the booking from the front end.

Is it possible to do this with this plugin.

Thanks.

Convergine

Hi cmoses,

Thank you for your interest in our product.

a) we do have such shortcode in this plugin, which will allow to post attendees list on any page/post for particular event (displays particular event attendees, not for every single event in the system)

b) Attendees can cancel through a link which they receive in the email only.

Great thank you!

I am looking to have my bookings automatically confirm once payment is made through Paypal.

I have enabled Instant Payment Notifications(IPN) on my Paypal account with the url http://www.*************.com/booking/paypal.ipn.php.

My bookings are still not automatically confirming after payment.

I’m messaging you via here as I didn’t receive support via forum. Do you guys have a code snippet or advice on this.

Convergine

Hi

All support requests are addressed within 24-48 hours (usually much less than that).

I just found out that I don’t have access to our support forum even after I have registered a valid license key for BookingWiz… That’s kind of frustrating and sucks especially when help is needed right away. Anyway I am having trouble with wordpress installation of your plugin. I have followed the instructions and added «booking» folder to the root of my wordpress directory. Then I have installed wp plugin and activated it in the panel, but I get «no such file or directory» error message when trying to run plugin installation to /booking/ folder. Tried all variants with and without slashes. Another question concerning ams plugin for bookingwiz – does it work in Russia and does it require additional payments to sms gateways?

Convergine

Hi zre,

Thank you for purchasing our product.

We’re looking into your email. Should be resolved today and we’ll let you know once it’s ready for review.

Does the coupon functionality work when using Paypal as the payment method?? I can’t figure it out? Do you have instruction/tutorial video?

Convergine

Yes, it does work with paypal multicolor. We’ve replied to your support forum inquiry. It is an option in calendar settings.

Hi, I’m considering purchasing BookingWiz my client offers a number of training courses covering quite a few topics. How would he handle searching courses based on topic and location?

Convergine

Hi,

Thank you for your interest in our product.

Unfortunately, there is no search capabilities at the moment. All calendars will appear in the dropdown – just like on our demo.

Default-user

OK thanks for clearing that up. One other question, is there any provision for giving volume discounts? i.e if you book 5 or more seats for a course, you get 10% discount.

Convergine

Unfortunately, there is no such functionality either. You can create coupons and give them out to your customers, but that’s not automatic sort of..

Does this integrate with gravity forms yet?

Convergine

Hi jmrandall,

Unfortunately no, and there’s no ETA for this particular integration.

Hi, Could you please help me out.

I need a booking system for a charity space where groups will book a room. It will be two options :

8am-2pm 2pm-8pm

I don’t need Paypal as the venue will be free of charge. After one is booked, I want it to show booked or sold on the calendar so people wont be able to book the same room again.

Will this plugin do the work ?

Thanks a lot

Convergine

Hi besi1988,

Thank you for your interest in our product.

Yes, our plugin will work fine for such scenario. Please keep in mind though that BookingWizz for Wordpress also requires original BookingWizz to be present on the server – http://codecanyon.net/item/booking-system/87919 (wp plugin wont work without it)

bizaweb Purchased

I purchased this plugin and couldn’t validate the license key

Can you help me?

Thank you!

Convergine

Hi bizaweb,

Thank you for purchasing our product.

During the WP plugin install you have to use original BookingWizz (standalone) license key. WP plugin requires bookingwizz to be present on the server.

hicct Purchased

Hi I have just purchased the original BookingWizz (standalone) as well as the WP plugin.

Question: can I setup timeslots of one hour on given dates in a specific week e.g. week 43.

Monday should have 5 time slots to choose from and wednesday should have 3 and friday should have 4. Each timeslot shuld be one hour and would represent an consulting hour.

Timeslots to choose could be:

Time 8:30-9:30 Time 9:45-10:45 Time 11:00 – 12:00 Time 12:45 – 13:45 Time 14:00 – 15:00

Client need to book one of the above timeslots.

The above should only be available in week 43 in the calendar and no matter what date I look at the page with the calender it should display the month with week 43.

How can I achive above?

Thanks.
