  1. Hi Team,
    I have installed EventPrime – Modern Events Calendar, Bookings and Tickets and EventPrime Woocommerce Integration plugin. The licence has been activated and is enabled. In WooCommerce, appropriate payment types have been enabled. There is not an option on the event page to enable WooCommerce Checkout.
    Have I missed something obvious or do I need to have a different licence from the free version.
    Best regards
    Bruce

  2. Whats the difference between bookings to events and using WooCommerce? Do we set up the ticket to attend an event as a WooCommerce product?

    1. Hello,

      Thank you for using EventPrime!

      The fundamental booking process corresponds to creating tickets natively or opting for third-party bookings where the visitor will be redirected to the provided URL.

      In the case of the “EventPrime WooCommerce Checkout” extension, the chosen event’s tickets are added to the cart( you do not need to create a ticket as a WooCommerce product ) and the checkout process will be delegated to the standard WooCommerce checkout process allowing you to utilize the payment gateways configured in the WooCommerce plugin.

      I hope this provides clarity on the matter.
      If you need further clarification or require additional information, please feel free to contact us.
      Always happy to help!

  3. I bought and have the EventPrime plugin installed, yet in the installed plugins it says “Events” and not “Event Prime”; I have the Woocommerce extension installed, yet I don’t see the screens you show above. How do I enable the ability to set a price to register and attend an event and pay through the site?

    1. Hello Sean,

      Thank you for reaching out!

      We appreciate your feedback and want to clarify that the ‘Events’ label in the installed plugins section is intentional. We take pride in our brand, and the ‘Events’ label is used as a concise and representative name for our EventPrime plugin. Our focus is on delivering a top-notch event management experience, and we appreciate your understanding of our branding approach.

      Regarding your inquiry about setting up an event and paying through the site, we’re happy to share that we’ve received this inquiry via our support forum, and our team has already taken care of it.

      If you have any further questions, please feel free to contact us.

    1. Hello Imran,

      We hope you are doing great!

      We have comprehensively reviewed your website and could not locate a running instance of EventPrime.
      Can you please check and verify whether EventPrime is activated or not?

      We will be more than happy to investigate and resolve the issue for you.

  4. I’ve bought this extension and after finally finding these instructions I have it working. However, your instructions say:

    ‘Frontend
    On the checkout page, you will notice an Add to Cart option INSTEAD of the usual Checkout…….’

    But what actually happens is that it shows the ADD TO CART option AND the CHECKOUT option (not instead) I think this makes it confusing for the customer. You would think that Checkout and Add to Cart would both take you through WooCommerce as that’s how WooCommerce works.

    I tried switching off PayPal to see if the checkout option disappeared but it didn’t. I only want to offer payments through WooCommerce, is this possible?

    It need to be really straight forward and at the moment having Add to Cart and Checkout options which use different payment methods will be confusing for people.
