WP Travel Pro v7.5.0: New Updated Features

1. Added editor support for guide templates

WP Travel Pro v7.5.0 has introduced a valuable enhancement as an editor support for guide templates.

It implies that users can now easily access and utilize pre-designed guide templates with the help of WP Travel Gutenberg Blocks plugin.

This enhancement simplifies the process of creating and customizing guides, providing users with predefined layouts and structures to work with, thereby improving efficiency and productivity.

2. Increased limit of partial payment up to 10

Additionally, we raised the maximum number of partial payments to 10 installments.

Users can now make payments in installments, and they have the flexibility to divide the total payment into up to 10 parts instead of fewer.

This enhancement provides more options for users in managing their payments, making it more convenient for them to afford the travel package offered

3. Added hook to exclude zip form stripe card payment  

The hook has been implemented to exclude the zip code field from the Stripe card payment process, specifically targeting customers in the United Arab Emirates (UAE).

Excluding the zip code field, streamlines the payment process for UAE customers, as zip codes may not be commonly used or required in that region for card transactions.

This customization aims to enhance the user experience for customers in the UAE when making payments via Stripe on the platform.

      return 'yes';
} )
