Currently, use it for a website that has a lot of bookings every day. So far no issues.
Juliol 1, 2023
The plugin doesn’t work as advertised and there’s practically NO SUPPORT by the author. A ticket was created SIX WEEKS ago but the author surfaces every several days, only to throw a hasty and inefficient comment and then he disappears again. Steer clear of this one
