Hi, just viewed the trip to havana demo, is it necessary to set a Base cost when user clicks on a calendar date or is it possible to have the cost listed below within the dropdown box. Adult: 1 Adult €90. 2 Adult €180 and so on??

Do you have an email so I can show you our current setup and what we need to achieve..

I think it may work, can we set the pricing like this: x Adult ( £20.00 ). x Child (under 10) ( £15.00 ). x Student ( £15.00 ). so the user can enter how many tickets they want to purchase and the form will calculate the total. For instance 3 x Adult ( £20.00 ) = Total £60.00

Hi, that wouldn’t be possible as you want the items to be calculated based on the number of tickets :(

Is there a way to just show a large calendar that shows which days have projects assigned to them?

Hi, quite interesting idea, sadly we do not support this as of yet :(

Thanks for the feedback.

Hi,

I want to make a golf course reservation, but the price is varied by not only day but also time.

So for example the pricing will look like this:

Mon – Fri 07:00 130 USD

Mon – Fri 09:00 110 USD

Sat 07:00 200 USD

Sat 13:00 150 USD

Is it possible to do with this plugin? Thank you.

Hi, not possible as time slots within the same day will need to have the same cost.

Pre sale question.

If 2 customers enter the booking journey at the same time and both select the same time, will your system give that slot to whoever clicked first?

We have had 2 instances in the past month where our current system has allowed a double booking. They both came in at the same time so it is unfortunate but its a problem.

The first person to book will get through while the second will be told one or more bookings have been removed.

Keep in mind that this is strictly in regard to days or time slots where you’ve chosen to set the booking mode as “Appointment” which means, the same date or time slot wont be allowed to be booked more than once.

Hope that helps.

Hi there, I’d like to be able to hire equipment out via 1 hour time slots, eg 10:15am – 11:15am, then 11:30am – 12:30pm, 12:45pm – 1:45pm with a 15 minute gap in between. Is this able to be achieved? Reason I’d like to do it is to be able to check the equipment before it’s rented back out. Is this possible?

Responded to email.

Pre Purchase question:

Hello,

I’m looking to rent out a certain product (right now just 1 big item and a couple of props/accesories) and I want people to be able to rent it from specific times:

Half-day morning: 10:00 – 16:00 (cost XXX $ Half-day evening: 18:00-24:00 (cost YYY $) Whole day: 10:00-24:00 (cost ZZZ $)

So basically different pricing for the three time intervalls.

And also different prices depending on what day.

Monday-Thursday (cost XXX $) Friday-Sunday (cost ZZZ $)

I also have some additional stuff to rent with the machine, like party hats accessories, entrance mats, green screen and so forth. Do i need them as a separate products or is it possible to make them “Stick” to the photobooth as “Add-ons” (I will charge for them)

I have the bookings plugin and woocommerce installed ( but it doesnt give me exactly what i want), as well as gravity forms (if nessecary).

I really just want a booking module to show only the main product and then you choose a date in calendar and then if certain conditions are met, i want a specific price to appear (hiding all the other options). Of course making sure there wont be overbookings since you can rent the machine 2 times in a day (10:00-16:00 & 18:00-24:00)

Hopefully this is possible, thanks!

Hi, timeslots within the same need to carry the same cost and can only vary by day so what you ask is not possible I’m afraid.

As for your additional machinary, you can add them as optionals within the same project as demonstrated on our demo pages.

Also not sure what you mean by certain conditions being met however, there is no option in the plugin to enable conditionally branching out so this is not possible as well.

Hope that helps.

Hi there, really enjoying working with the system. Are you able to let me know if the ghosted out time slots (meaning times that aren’t available to be booked) could be removed, as I’ve had a few people enquire about a time that’s ghosted out in the available time slots menu. Link in question is http://margamparkadventure.co.uk/go-kart/

I only want time slots at 10:15, 11:30, 12:45, 2, 3:15 and not the rest of the ghosted out times. Is this possible?

Many Thanks…

Hi, go in the “General settings” page and expand the”Timezone, Date Format Settings” section. Ensure that the “Display booked time slots” field is unchecked.

Hope that helps.

I have a couple of questions.

1. Is there a way to integrate the Booki Cart and WooCommerce cart? 2. On the Admin email, the personal details come in as Additional Information ( additionalinformation ). Is there any way to format this information so that it is not all put in one paragraph but each element has it’s own line?\ eg. First name: Last name: Telephone:

At the moment it reads like; First name, last name, telephone, all in one paragraph.

3. When the Admin email comes through is there a way to say if it is paid or not if they choose Book now Pay later?

Thanks for your help in advance! Anyone’s help would be great.

Cheers,

Jonathan

hi,

1. No, we do not have support for woocommerce and the plugin uses it’s own cart system.

2. Editing the additional information is not possible.

3. If a booking is paid for, you will receive notification of payment. However, in case of book now, pay later, it means you will collect payment at a later time. Hence you need to flag the booking as paid from the admins back-end yourself after receiving payment.

Hope that helps.

Great support so far – one final query from me – http://www.booki.io/events/ is what I’m looking to replicate for a Kayak Taster Session on set days only (not via a calendar selection) with sessions from 10:30 – 11:30, 11:30 – 12:30, 1:30 – 2:30, 2:30 – 3:30 and 3:30 – 4:30pm.

How do I achieve this?

Don’t worry, all sorted! Silly me..

Hi, hoping you can help me out here.

Will your plugin allow me to do the following:

- Set only certain time slots available to book classes (e.g one class at 1pm-2pm. and another at 6pm-7pm) - Set a number of spaces available in each class. - Set payment for booking the class, but skip the payment and book for free if you are a member (my idea is to do this by setting a user role to the user, if this user is logged in and the site sees it is of the correct user role, then payment is skipped and they can book for free). The number of slots needs to go down for both members and non members, E.g number of slots is 20, if a member books it goes down to 19 slots left, non member books it goes down again to 18 etc.

Hope your plugin can facilitate my needs!

Hi, we do not support the features you are after :(

How can i modify the email template, for example add my logo or how it’s shown the email. THX

Hi, you can do this from within the “Email settings” page. To change the logo and layout of the email templates, modify the “Master template”.

Hope that helps.

Hi,

At this moment I have one website running with Booki, I want to create a second one that is pretty similar but it has some changes. Of course I understand that I have to buy a second license because it is another domainname / website. But I don’t feel like programming Booki all over again. Can I just copy my original website to my new one in FTP and just pay for the license? That would save me a lot of work. Do I have to put a code somewhere in the new copied website?

Kind regards,

Typps

Hi, that’s perfectly alright. Go ahead and move the files to your new site which is also quite convenient for you.

Hope that helps.

Thank you for your hard work supporting this plugin. I did not see an example of the functionality I need in the demo pages but maybe you can help me answer some questions?

I see I can offer booking for define time slots (like one hour). Can I set up 1-hour blocks and someone can still book 4-hours? The demo pages don’t seem to have sample data. Can users see the available time slots on the calendar? And is it also possible to allow users to see what time slots are booked and who is booked for that time slot (maybe by mouseover or click?)

Hi, it is possible to allow booking more than one time slot by enabling a listbox to display timeslots as seen in our massage therapy demo.

It is not possible to show what has been booked on mouseover, however you can enable an attendees tab. This can be seen in the Events demo.

Hope that helps.

Hello Typps,

I’m really Interested in purchasing your plugin. Could you just confirm a few things to me : - Can we use another payment solutions, such as : Mangopay, ogone or Hipay - Is there a search engine tool to find or filter the events ?

Thanks a lot :)

Hi, we do not have the features you are after.

Pre-sales question. How does the book now pay later function work? I’m looking for a calendar plugin that will allow me to charge only once the appointment is approved. Thanks

Typps

Typps Author

Hi, you can approve the booking and then send an invoice with payment instructions and if PayPal for billing is enabled in the plugins general settings, then they will be able to pay for the booking via PayPal following the link in the invoice email.

Hope that helps.
