I’m very happy to see an update for this theme! I’m curious if you can answer a couple questions for me.
- Is there an ability to change what services are taxed? For example, when you click a checkbox to add additional fees, are those items added to the total and then taxed? I still need a system that will only tax the rental rate and not the cleaning fee that we have in place.
- Is it fixed now so that a booking will not send a confirmation email upon an unfinished payment? And is there some way in the admin back-end that shows IF the deposit was completed or canceled without having to manually check it?
I have made alterations to some of this theme myself, and would likely have to re-do them. Unless there is a list of what files were and were not changed?
I know I may need to renew support to transition to this update, but I’m curious of your response here first. Thank you.
1.) Tax: Actually I haven’t implemented tax in the new update yet, but will do soon, I can probably add an option to exclude specific services from being taxed, so let me look into this
2.) Emails: An email is sent when a booking is placed, and another is sent when the payment is made
3.) Payments: Yes you don’t need to manually check now, the payment status is automatically updated in the WordPress dashboard when the customer pays
4.) Which files have changed: I’ve actually completely re-designed and developed everything from scratch so it’s essentially a new/different theme
Thank you for your quick reply and openness to developing the plugin further.
Another feature you may consider for the future would be the ability to download a CSV file of all bookings, by month, or custom date range.
As the theme has been fully redesigned, can you recommend or write a documentation page that explains how to update this properly?
Will existing bookings, accommodations, and settings remain intact or will these have to be re-done?
Sure I’ll bear CSV file exporting in mind for a future update.
Regarding updating to the latest version of Soho Hotel – you will need to manually copy/paste all the content over – and probably re-built a lot of it – you’re basically building a new website if you update.
Hi, any plans to make your booking system compatible with other payment gateways, e.g. Authorize.net? Stripe has a very limited coverage.
Thanks for your interest.
Yes I’m planning to integrate other payments gateways and more features soon.
Could you specify which gateways you have in mind and do you think by the end of this year? This would really help me make a decision on whether to buy this theme. Thanks.
I’d like to integrate Authorize.net and Paymill by the end of the year, but if you’re intending to purchase for these specific payment gateways I’d recommend waiting until I’ve integrated them before you purchase.
I know most of what I’m about to ask have perhaps been asked before, but please take a moment and let me know if the following are supported by this theme:
1. More than one language (e.g. with WPML) with room availability being the same across all languages. For example, if I reserve a room in the english version, the room should not be available in the french version for those dates.
2. Seasonal rates – more than 5 custom seasons.
3. Payment by bank transfer or upon arrival, with a percentage of the total required for the booking. E.g. pay 30% of the total by bank transfer (to confirm the booking) and the rest upon arrival (either cash or credit card).
4. Payment by credit card, through Bank’s interface.
5. Inventory for each room, e.g. 5 double rooms
2.) Yes, you can have unlimited seasonal price filters
3.) Payment is by cash, PayPal or credit card (processed by Stripe) – if by “bank transfer” you mean you just add your bank details on the page and the customer uses these to make the transfer, sure you could add these on the cash payment thanks page.
And yes you can require a percentage of the total as a deposit when booking.
4.) Credit card payments can be processed using Stripe
Thank you very much.
Hi, I have been using this lovely theme for years, glad to see new update is available.
Question to ask before I renew support.
I am currently using 1.9.8, from the change log I noticed that old theme data is not compatible with new theme, it also mentioned I will have to manually import theme data, I will like to check
1. How complicated is the whole process, is it like using some import/export plugin kind of process or I will have to copy and paste my settings manually?
2. How about the existing booking data and all season price filters?
Will you include an option for customer to choose deposit or full amount payment in future? Currently there is either option that preset in admin.
Glad to hear the theme has been serving you well!
1.) It’s a completely new theme and booking plugin – so you would need to copy/paste all content over manually. It’s easy to do, but it will be slightly time consuming. All the future updates will be straight forward after this though. The old theme and booking plugin were 4 years old so it’s definitely time to switch I think!
2.) You would need to manually copy/paste all this over
3.) Sure I can probably add an option to select deposit only or full payment, I’ll add this to the todo list
If you have any other ideas for features let me know.
Hi, Just wondering if there is a mobile app that interfaces with the backend booking system or if you plan on developing one in the future? What does the current backend look like if I want to manage from a mobile device?
The WordPress dashboard is responsive, meaning it will scale to support users viewing on mobile devices.
Happy to send you some screenshots if you email me: firstname.lastname@example.org
Hello, I’m looking to buy this theme and would like to know if it can be used to make something similar to this https://www.beglammed.com instead of a hotel booking site. If you have some examples of this theme being used for other services please can you share. Thanks
You can use the theme for anything if it fits the style of website design you want – the only issue I can see would be the booking system which is specifically designed for accommodation booking because it books overnight only, not by the hour or at a specific time, which I think is what you’re looking for.
I cant acheive Header Style 3
You mean the “Header Style 3” shown on the demo website here? http://themes.quitenicestuff2.com/sohohotelwp/
To set this, go to “Theme Options > General” and set “Header Style” to “Header 1” and then set the “Home II” page as the homepage assuming you’ve imported the demo data.
If you’re still having trouble setting it up please open a support ticket (I can set it up for you if you include your WP login details in the ticket): https://quitenicestuff.ticksy.com/
book now doesn’t work
Please open a support ticket with a link to your website and details of the problem and I’ll be happy to help: https://quitenicestuff.ticksy.com
I am considering purchasing this theme but have a few questions before I do. Can you create a calendar for each room? Can you reserve more than one room at a time?
Just realized one can select more than one room at a time.
1.) Yes you can manage the availability of each room separately
2.) Yes you can book multiple rooms at the same time
Does your booking system take deposits and can you explain the confirmation/payment process? When you reserve a room I assume payment must be received first to confirm booking, correct?
That was a pre-sale question
Yes you can set a % of the total booking price as the deposit and ask the guest to pay this when they book – their booking won’t go through until they pay the deposit.
Thank you! I was confused by an old comment here stating one would have to confirm a booking before payment and that didn’t make sense.
It’s best to just check the current theme description or ask about features here yourself, because there are 4 years worth of comments here and the answers are all different depending on when they were asked, since I’ve changed the booking plugin functionality a lot over the years and added new features.
