    Hi

    I’m working on setting up WC Vendors with Bookings and I’ve come across a couple of issues.

    1. My site is essentially allowing people to sell their time/services. If a vendor has multiple products for different services they want to offer the system doesn’t recognise that booking the vendor for one service on one day means they are unavailable on that day for their other listings i.e. the calendar on the other products shows them as available. As there is no way to limit the number of products a vendor can list its pretty important that they can’t be double booked. Is it possible to alter the plugin so that when vendor is booked for one day on one product this reflects in their availability across all the products they have listed?

    2. I read that the plugin doesn’t support more than one booking being checked out at once due to limitations in WooCommerce Bookings. The issue is that the system doesn’t seem to prevent people checking out multiple bookings but what appears in the vendors dashboard is an order showing only one date but with a sale total of all the days booked (so I agree it doesn’t work, at least not well). To avoid these broken bookings is it possible to restrict multiple items being added to the cart and notify people when they try?

    Thanks for you help!

    Hi Thomas,
    1. If this is a function in WooCommerce Bookings without WC Vendors Pro.. then this is likely something that we can make possible in our integration. If you, as admin, “double book” with two different bookings products that you have listed, does it prevent this from happening? (take WC Vendors Pro out of the scenario and list two bookable products as admin.)

    2. I will test this– and if it is allowing more than one bookable product to be added to the cart at a time, then we should look into adding some coding to prevent this, yes.

    Hi Anna

    Thanks for your help.

    I’ve tested what happens without the WC Vendors Bookings plugin as suggested above and it does the same i.e. it allows me to double book the admin using two different products. This is quite a major flaw in the Woo Bookings module which is even more of an issue with lots of vendors managing their own bookings using WC Vendors. If you have any suggestions on how it could be fixed it would be great to know.

    Thanks
    Tom

    Hi Anna

    If it helps, I’ve been doing a bit more testing and I have found that if you link the same resource to each product this prevents double booking. Not ideal for vendors to have to do this to avoid double bookings but it shows the plugin is able to check availability across products at least.

    Thanks

    Tom
