Variable pricing for event:
- Support multiple prices per event. You can set up ticket price for adult/children or male/female.
- Support creating additional packages for ticket. I.e: You can setup ticket with food & drink packages, book packages, etc.
- Support coupon code for ticket discount.
- JSE Event is designed in the form of multiple templates, so it is not difficult to change the interface if you have some knowledge about HTML and CSS.
So, you pay for what you get. The price is right and honestly the rest of the product so far functions correctly and is easy to setup. They also have pretty decent documentation... but if it's support or a working calendar function you are also needing for your manager, then purchase at your own risk.
Giving it an 'average' ranking because the actual event setup and process works and the price is right. I would pay twice as much for a working event calendar though!
It worked PERFECTLY after I got everything configured on my deeply complicated website.
My only concern is that after the 12-month support period, I could not find any details on how to RENEW the subscription.
It seems that the only option available to me is to purchase the component again. While I don't mind doing this for the price, I would much rather have some additional options available like extending the subscription through the purchase of upgrades.
Right now, after just over a year of extensive use my version and plugins have become extremely buggy. I suggest contacting the company to find out how renewal works or even if this is an option. And for the company, I think it would be a good idea to post info on how that part of it works in a visible place on the website.
Again, this is a wonderful product - hands down. Be aware, however, that you could end up paying for it multiple times over which isn't cool if you really like it, and plan to use it as long as they keep developing it. Personally, I'd rather pay for upgrades after one year and perhaps have additional subscription options than keep purchasing and configuring software every 12 months.Currently, support lasts six months after purchase and you get upgrades for a year.
I have used this great extension the first time and we needed some custom functions. The team is allways available for support and work very fast to help you achieve your goal. The support is really excellent.
I'd like to recommend joomseller and their components to you all!
Thank you for your review. The old versions of Events Booking have translation files, but we will update these files for the latest version as soon as possible. Please stay tuned for our updates.
- the component and the modules are not multilanguage as promised
- the component do not offer other time set then AM/PM, 24 hours and other date formats are just available by customizing files
In our case there has been and still a lot of issues, errrors, bugs, incompatible functions and so on.
The support is friendly and tries to help as good as they can, but there are so much things wrong that I would recommend: if you are not a good developer, keep your fingers far away from this version!
The component has potential but it is not working and we thoght we paid for a component which works.
First, thank you for your bad review.
I've checked your name in ticket system, but it does not exist. So i don't know what is your problem with EB Pro. Before you submit any bad review, you should contact us or submit a ticket first.
As you know, the EB Pro is a big system, so you have to read the document carefully to setup it correctly in your site.
Please contact us and update your review if you agree with our support services.
I bought this and initially when I tried it for a client I have to confesss I didn't get along with it but as it had some features I really wanted for a site I tried it again ... and I can say I'm glad I did. I think the upgrades have dealt with the issues I had and while I've had some conflicts with it in my site the guys there have been terrific in helping me and persisting in solving the problem.
Great value for money.
They seem VERY helpful. I didn't mean to post a negative review. What I've learned from this is that sometimes an extension needs support and help and doesn't always work perfectly out of the box.
So it's really good to deal with programmers who support their product as responsively and responsibly as Joomseller does.
In the Event Booking Detail view you cannot tell which Price Selection the attendee selected (only the starting price for that event is shown but not what they selected)
Packages are being added to the Booking in the details view when not selected (It doesn't appear total price is affected) but is misleading.
Packages do not show the Quantity selected in Event Booking Detail View - You can't tell whether they chose a quantity 1, 2, or 3 of a particular package.
Selected Packages don't show up in Export to CSV.
Thank you very much, eggzamummy!
Yes, it seems there were some issues with Events Booking when we upgrade to the new version 4.0.0.
However we are trying to fix all issue, so you should report us at forum or tickets system before give us a bad review. So please download the latest version 4.0.2 and check it again.
Anyway, thank you for your review.
I use this great extension the first time and my client need some custom functions. The team is allways available and make all custom functions very fast. The support is really excellent. They react really fast if there is any problem.
I'd like to recommend joomseller and their components to all!
They fixed it within 1! day. No questions asked.
Translating it in Dutch en will donate it.
I sound like an Employee but i'm Dutch and they are not :-)
Other important thing, templates are used so designers can easy change the looks without running in to update trouble.
It is so flexible i am using it to build a site where courses can be followed and you can subscribe for a course.
It looks great, and offers something a bit different.
Integration with JomSocial is great, very good.
I had to raise some support issues which were dealt with very quickly , within 24 hrs issues were dealt with.
It is so good to be able to purchase such a great product, and also know you have great support to back it up.
Future updates on this product look very exciting.
I look forward to purchasing more from JoomSeller in the future.
And support has been a dream come true... with in hours feedback was emailed to me or waiting for me when I logged in. They jump on problems before you even throw it at them and when I needed to change a few things on the main event page they shot me the answer I needed within minutes.
But the best thing I like about this component is how easy it lets you import all of Eventlist events with one or two clicks. I been looking for something as good as Eventlist 1.0.1 for Joomla 1.6 & 1.7. I even brough ohanah Event component and just couldn't get it to work with my template.
But Pro Event Booking installed without any problems, in less than 5 minutes I was importing my Eventlist events and venues into my new Joomla 1.6.5 Site. And I have to say my members love Pro Event Booking, it lets them see the time countdown of my event and with one click they can buy tickets for my event. These guys added 4 different payment plugins into Pro Event Booking something "ohanah" doesn't have at the moment. They also added a Google Map to this component that show the location of a event and with one click a member can get directions.
My members can search by events, dates or venue. You can place the upcoming event module on your homepage. And it allows you to integrate Jomsocial and Community Builder registration options to the payment form. Now that was a major surprise to learn because I use both of these Social Components on different sites.
So if you are looking for something to replace EventList 1.0.1 or something for Joomla 1.6.5 or Joomla 1.7 this is the Event Component to get!
Keep adding those features because I love it...
Thank you very much, charles99!
We are trying hard to find and add more feature for our events booking pro. And make regular visits to our site to get more useful extensions every month.
I think the price is very affordable and if you need a good component for events booking and viewing, then this is a good choice.
Special thanks to the deveploment team!
