At first, I just wanted to try but didn’t give this plugin much credit given that it doesn’t have a lot of reviews and installs. I tried for couple of days and the functionality works out of the box. The interface looks well maintained and easy to understand. I need to create offers so probably will go with pro version.

I’ve been using this plugin for 2 years now and it has been a seamless experience since day one. It was easy to install, configure and customize it to meet my business’ unique needs for a directory. I haven’t had any significant issues with the product so far. However, whenever I had a question, the support team exceeded my expectations in terms of turnaround time and thoroughness.

Easy to use and very effective. Out of all the business directory plugins I tried this was the one I chose. The plugin and customer support are on point and great.

I used this product for years in Joomla and it was faultless. Sadly I have spent days trying to get this to work in WordPress and after bug, after bug, I cannot make any progress. This was a charity project so it’s been really stressful with a great waste of time and money. I’m having to write this off as a mistake.

Today I tested the plugin for the first time. Nice and professional idea. I noticed a few mistakes. For example, when switching to a hotel listing on the site, a critical problem arises. I hope that in the future you will not abandon this project and will develop it. Best regards, Julia.
