Q: How many sites can I use VM Rental Plugin for?

A: The number of domains/sites you can use the plugin on is unlimited.


Q:I would like to know if when a customer rents an item for a period of time it is blocked for the selected period. Price?

A: Yes, a product gets block after a customer rented it for the selected period. Price can be set to different ranges depending on a number of days a product is rented. 


Q: How does the stock control work? If for example I have 10 of the same product will it track all of the products? By that I mean if someone hires 5 items for a period will it keep the other 5 free for that period?

A: VM Rental plugin keeps a record of a number of available products for rent. If you have 10 products and 5 is already rented only 5 will be available for rent until any other product will be available according to rental terms.


Q: Is there a way to make it so that products can only be hired on week days? And not be able to select a weekend day?

A: There is no option to select rent days in plugin yet. We try to keep functionality simple and develop products based on most often requests.


Q: I have a very specific rent process flow? Can your plugin be adjusted to my needs.

A: Depending on specifics of the process you have  we may suggest VM Rental plugin modification or develop entirely new plugin. Sometimes it is easier to build a new solution that modify exsiting one. Our offer will always have a choice and will be based on cost/effectiveness ratio.
