JetBooking. Totally upgraded and refined

Remember, we presented to your judgment a Beta version of a newly developed plugin called JetBooking? This addon was specially made for JetEngine and JetSmartFilters plugin as an extension allowing to embed booking functionality and use it together with Custom Post Types, Listings, Forms, and filters available in Jet plugins.

Basically once JetBooking is enabled you can see additional block appeared in your JetEngine dashboard, as well as there’s a brand-new field type available in the Form. Plus, JetBooking is able to interact with JetSmartFilters and consider the information of already booked items when filtration is made.

Let’s take a look at new options added to the first stable version of the JetBooking plugin.

Why it worth using

Let’s start with its scope of application. JetBooking plugin can be used for any kind of business, which requires booking anything from the frontend. It can be used either in a small-sized shop or on large hotel websites. For example, if you offer to rent some equipment and your potential customers need to have the opportunity to check its availability and book it for a certain period, it can be easily done by means of JetBooking. No matter what kind of business you’re running: if you have anything to book – our plugin is at your service.

    Great. Can you display user inputed content from the booking form on a webpage.

      Hi Cameron,

      Could you be more clear in your request?

    Does this integrate with a payment/merchant system such as PayPal, Stripe or Braintree?

    If not, will it in the future (via API key or Access Tokens for example).

        Thank you, I’ll look into it. …this could be a game-changer for some clients I have 🙂

    Can I use a woo-commerce checkout during hotel booking?

    1. Olga Aksamitnaya

      Unfortunately, no, with JetBooking you will be able to receive the information about items being booked, but WooCommerce checkout can’t be used here.

    Hi, after submitting the booking form, can a customer check the booking he has just made, something similar to “Orders” in Woocommerce My Account page? Also, does the plugin allow customers to change their booking information, for example phone number or even cancel the order? Thanks!

      Hi, Greg!

      Unfortunately, we do not have integration with WooCommerce. So customers cannot change their information.
