This amazing new feature is available from version 1.2.3 till our latest version of WP Travel. It represents a fully customizable mechanism that the user needs to go through to Book the Trips.
Features of checkout processes:
One of the most important features of the checkout process is a clear indication of the steps/progress throughout the entire checkout process.
Setting up checkout processes
To enable the checkout process you don’t need to add any sorts of extra plugin. The feature is bundled within the plugin itself.
After activating the WP Travel for the checkout process, the first thing you need to do is assign the “Checkout Page” and “Dashboard Page” with “WP Travel Checkout” and “WP Travel Dashboard” options respectively by going to Admin Panel > WP Travel > Settings > General > Pages.
( Note: Upon installation of the WP Travel version 1.2.3, the plugin creates the pages “WP Travel Check out” by default. )
But in case if the default pages are not working for you then you can create the pages by yourself by going to Admin panel > Pages > Add New by including the shortcode for the checkout page.
Shortcode to add while creating the pages :
Checkout Page : [wp_travel_checkout]
Dashboard Page : [wp_travel_user_account]
Thank You Page: [wp_travel_thankyou]
The flow of the checkout process starts by clicking on the “Book Now” which is located on the Single Trip Page button.
Step 1: The workflow begins with clicking on the “Book Now” button. After clicking on Book now button it will redirect you to the Booking tab and a Button with “Select a Date” will appear again with the Book Now button.
Step 2: Click on the “Book now” button then you will be redirected to the checkout page where the booking form is available for booking the trips. From here you will be able to choose the different payment methods for final payment after filling out the details of the form. The default payment is Standard PayPal.
- Standard PayPal: Available within the plugin.
