I wish you could have extended licences for all your major components like you do for SP Page builder

Take a developer subscription. You get all the templates and extensions. It is worth the money.

I'm sorry, you didn't understand my statement. Extended licence allows you to re-sell the component packaged in your template but not include it as an installer. With the developer subscription, you can't do that.

Hi great start!

Would recommend you to include a Stripe payment plg and also integration with EasySocial proflling system & streams.

Another tips is to create a module(menu) for the destination but with a "global destination OSM map" function with different markers colours for different categories. Example heading map with one marker type

Can you limit access to specific accommodation by user, so you can allow management of each hotel only by that hotel owner?

Can this be used to just showcase a property with a button link to booking.com. Without the setting the dates etc. Just a pure link but keep the layout as a listing.

I would also be a great addon to make it possible to rent out your property (villa, appartment,..) also in combination with other hotel booking facilities that also is integrated with other booking system. See this trend where these two booking types integrates worldwide now. So you can rent out your summer house and also your appartment, villa for shorter and longer times.

If you have a developer plan then you can download it or you have to purchase the extension separately.

Hello Miriam,
The SP Booking extension is included in the Developer plan. Personal and Business plans don’t include SP Booking. So if you don’t have a JoomShaper Developer plan, you are required to purchase SP Booking separately. You can find SP Booking pricing here.

Well I really like this component to take off really good. I also invested before in a Joomla fraud component with other people losing a couple of hundred dollars for something never delivered by a Korean guy living in Vietnam still doing his scam http://www.eazytour.com/index.php/en/ I helped him a lot but he scammed all people nobody get the product in the end.
