Hi, It will be nice if you can consider a Vipps payment addon. Here is the link to this with documention: https://nb.wordpress.org/plugins/woo-vipps/

Regards Trond André

Hi,

Thank you for your suggestion for a new payment gateway. I will check their documentation, which I could found. The link you provided is not the developer documentation but their WooCommerce module. ;-)

We have 8 rooms. We have a 15% discount for 2 of those rooms and a 25% discount for 4 rooms. 2 rooms have no discount. All the dates/seasons are the same. Why is only one discount applying?

Hi,

There are no issues with HBook discounts. It seems to be a problem of set up of the discount rules in HBook – Booking rules – Advanced booking rules. If you wish to get help with this, we would need to check this directly on your WordPress installation. ;-)

Please note that your technical support has expired. If you wish us to have a look, we would kindly ask you to renew your technical support period and to contact us : https://maestrel.com/contact-support/.

Thank you for your comprehension!

Well, there isn’t an issues with that because you can’t assign dates or accommodations in that section for percentage discounts. I will renew support and start a ticket.

Hi,

To be more specific, it can be due to the way seasons, booking rules and discounts are set up.

I let you come renew support and start a ticket. We will check this further with you. :-)

Hi, is there a way that a client can login and see his / hers previous booking? At the moment they only have the email after making a reservation. I’d like to give them a user account so they can also see their reservation online. Thanks for your reply!

Hello,

Thank you for reaching out.

With the current version of HBook, it is not possible for the customer to have access to his reservation, to view/manage it. It is in our wishlist for future developments. Thank you for your patience!

Quick question – can I turn the payment part completely off to not show any dollar signs whatsoever? My client offers free overnight cabin stays for pastors and does not charge a nickel, therefore, I would just need to be able to book it without showing any pricing or breakdowns of payments. If this is possible, please instruct me on how to do it.

Hi,

You can set that you do not wish to display prices in HBook – Search from – Accommodation selection. ;-)

Hi,

Yes, all fine with Abritel. ;-)

Nous avons de nombreux clients français qui synchronisent HBook avec Abritel. Vos calendriers seront à jour automatiquement, tant sur Abritel que sur HBook.

Ok perfect thanks. if i understand this correcly , you still have to manage your prices on abritel , booking etc… this only sync availability?

Yes, exactly. The ical syns is there to manage availability. It does not sync rates or descriptions for example. For this, you will need a channel manager. ;-)

Hello! My client has a website with a catalog of houses for daily rent. This list of houses is already on the site, so we do not need to re-add all the information about the houses. We want your plugin to be able to add an order form with a calendar for each house in the list. So that you can create a separate form with a calendar for a separate house. Each house has its own form. Is it possible? Thank you!

And so that a person can simply select the day of Check-in and Check-out from this house and other options and send the data for confirmation to the site admin.

Hello,

Thank you for your interest in HBook plugin.

Yes, you can actually use your existing house pages, and simply inlcude a booking form, availability calendar, rates table directly on these pages already created.

You will use HBook “Accommodation types” pages only to set up the booking system (indicate occupancy settings, descriptions to be displayed, any preparation time, etc.). You can check this article from our knowledgebase : https://maestrel.com/knowledgebase/?article=75&suggest=1 and this section of our documentation : https://maestrel.com/documentation/hbook/en/#display_options

And yes, you can have a confirmation email sent to the customer and site admin, all fine. ;-)

If you have other presales questions, please do not hesitate to ask.

Kind regards,

Hi, is it possible to directly select a date from the availability calendar? Now you can see if there’s a room available (or not) but i’d like to have the option to select directly from that calendar instead of the form version where you get this calendar in a popup version. Hope you understand my question and thanks in advance!

Hello,

It is not possible to select the check-in/check-out date directly from the availability calendar. You will use a “Booking form” shortcode/block for this purpose. ;-)

Hello

How can I change the default “reply to” in all email templates at once, instead of editing 1 by 1?

By default, emails have no-reply@domain.com

Hi,

For the reply-to email : if you wish to have a different email than the default one, you would need to edit each email template. ;-)

For the default admin email (used for the “To” and “From” when not specified, you can set a different email in HBook – Misc – Misc .

Best regards,

Celine, Maestrel

Thank you. It would be usefull on future updates to add a default “reply to” option for all email templates at once.

Hi, is there an option to set price for extra services to specific season?

Hello,

With the current version of HBook, it is not possible to set a seasonal price for extra-services. There is a possible workaround, but it might or might not be suitable for your project. If you wish, you can send us a request : https://maestrel.com/contact-general/ and I will explain it further, with the limitations, so you know if it will be usable in your situation. ;-)

Hi, I have set an “Extra Service” item called “Pets” which is set to “Quantity per day”. Where on the Booking or Search form is there a place to add the Quantity of pets?

Thank you, Slade

Hi Slade, the available extra-services will be automatically shown to the customer straight after the accommodation selection. So your customer can select how many pets he will bring and HBook will automatically calculate the cost as per quantity per day. ;-)

Kind regards

Been using this on a few sites. Love it. Question: Is there a way to do text notifications? I’d like to receive an audible alert when I get a new booking. If not, is this something you plan on adding in the future?

Hi Jeremy,

Glad to hear that you are loving HBook for your projects! :-)

We currently do not have integrated text notification. However, I know that some of our users set up SMS via email services. And it seems to work nicely, ;-)

Question – I have several “seasons” setup for multiple accommodations. When I put the Rate Table on one of the Accommodation pages it shows ALL of the Seasons and not just the ones pertaining to this particular accommodation. I hope this makes sense.

Is there a way to Only show the Seasons/Rates for a particular accommodation? Creating a shortcode using each specific accommodation ID won’t work in my scenario.

Thanks! Slade

Hi Slade,

Seasons are global and apply to all accommodation types. You can indeed have different rates and booking rules for each season, and for each accommodation type according to season. But if your summer season is from June 1st to September 15th for example, then this season applies to all accommodation types.

If you have seasons that are different for each accommodation type, would you please get in touch with us through our support request form : maestrel.com/contact-support/ ? Would you please include your different seasons’ dates? I will give you an example of how to tackle this, if suitable for your project.

Kind regards,

Celine, Maestrel

Sorry for the late reply. You are correct, my client manages 20 vacation rentals for 20 different owners which makes it difficult to do anything ‘global”. I would guess they have around 20-30 different seasons/holidays setup. If I get a chance I will send you a Support query with some examples. Thanks!

Hi,

Sure, please send me a support ticket and I will check this further with you. :-)

Hi, is there a way to add reward points with HBook? e.g. integrate with WooCommerce payment gateways and compatible with other reward point plugins?

Hello,

I am afraid that HBook do no offer reward points functionality and that WooCommerce is not supported for the booking/payment. We have developed HBook as a complete system, with an online booking process which is closer to the hotel industy requirements than the usual WooCommerce shopping cart. Thank you for your comprehension. ;-)

If you have further questions, please do not hesitate to ask.

Hi there ,

Is it possible to pay the price of the booking online by credit card and to store the credit card details for the deposit ? Exemple : The customer book 7 nights , the price is 700$ and the deposit 300$. The customer pay 700$ by credit card on the website to book the room, and we store the credit card details for the 300$ deposit.

Thanks,

Loic.

Hi Loic,

Yes, you can do so with Stripe payment gateway. In HBook->Payment->Stripe settings, there is an option “Store credit card”. If you set it to “Yes”, a Stripe customer is created and the credit card is saved on Stripe secured servers.

In Reservations menu, you will then be able to charge the credit card at a later stage by clicking “Charge” in column “Price/Payment”. The charge is processed via Stripe.

Best regards,

Céline, Maestrel

//////////////////////////////////////////////////////

Bonjour Loïc,

Oui, cela est possible avec la passerelle de paiement Stripe, qui est proposée par défaut dans HBook. Vous pouvez choisir dans HBook – Paiements – Paramètres de Stripe que vous souhaitez “Conserver les données de carte bancaire”. Un client Stripe est créé par Stripe, avec la carte bancaire indiquée comme moyen de paiement. Ces informations sont stockées en toute sécurité sur les serveurs de Stripe. Vous pourrez ensuite effectuer un débit (ou un remboursement) via Stripe, directement depuis la liste des Réservations dans l’admin HBook.

Merci Celine !

Hi there. Quick question. If we want to add extra payment to a guest that is checking in, can we just click the “edit” payment button in the back-end and click update to charge this “extra” fee ?? And will Stripe process this ? Thanks!

Hello,

You can indeed add an extra-service or modify the price, to include an extra cost. You will be able to process it through Stripe if you have set that you wish to save credit card details in “Stripe settings” of HBook – Payments.

Best regards,

Much thanks! Perfect!

After a room is booked, is it possible to generate a booking reference number and display it on welcome page and also mail the reference number ?

Hi,

You can indeed set that you wish to use a 8-digit alphanumeric “Reservation number” (for example 19505H3E), in addition to the reservation ID. It can be included in the emails but it currently can not be displayed in the “Thank you” confirmation screen.

Kind regards,

Celine, Maestrel

Does your razorpay addon has webhook integration ?

Our integration of “RazorPay for HBook” currently does not use webhook. We have developed the web integration and we retrieve the payment status when the customer returns to your website.

We regularly update our add-ons and, when available, we use the asynchronous webhook call to update the status of the reservation. If you decide to go ahead and use HBook for your project, feel free to revert to me and I will check if an update of our add-on for RazorPay could be done. ;-)

Kind regards,

I am very much interested, I have only 1 query regarding extra bed discount calculation for which you provided a workaround.

If you can include webhook in your next update it would be really helpful

Yes, if feasible, I will indeed.

Hey 1. After selecting the number of adults and children your plugin displays the filtered accommodations. But is it also possible to display the remaining accommodations below the recommended ones?

2. I can see that you provide extra bed option pricing. But at time of providing discount, can the discount be applied only on the regular pricing and not on the extra bed charge? For eg if double room cost is 100 USD and extra bed cost is 40 USD. And if discount of 10% is provided, it should be application to 100 USD alone and not the 40 USD.

Hi,

We don’t have an API for HBook. However, you can use our filters/hook : https://maestrel.com/documentation/hbook/en/#plugin_customization

Kind regards,

Hey, just for clarification. I can set different price for single, double and triple occupancy right? For eg in a deluxe room Single – 50 USD Double – 80 USD Triple – 100 USD

Hi, You can set the normal occupancy, which in your example would be Single Occupancy. Then, you can set the price per person above normal occupancy. Please note that the price for each person above normal occupancy can not be different from a second person to a thirs person. So, in your example, if you set the “Price per person above normal occupancy at 25 USD per person, the rate would be : Single – 50 USD Double – 75 USD Triple – 100 USD

But, to set it with +30USD for the second person and +20USD for the third person, you would need to use a workaround. ;-)

Kind regards

We want to add extra services like “Beach Bike” for example, but we only have 6 bikes. I see I can limit number of services per booking, but is there a way to prevent over-booking of services across all of our accommodations?

Hello Jeremy,

With the current version, it is not possible to set a maximum quantity for the entire hotel, for the extra-services. It is on our wishlist for future developments, but I can not guarantee that it will be added soon.

Thank you for your comprehension!
