Support forumCategory: Feature requestsFrontend Admin Bookings to Bypass Payments
fourdw asked 1 month ago

Hi, I’ve had a good read through the documentation so I don’t think it’s possible at the moment but thought I’d double check.
Admin want to make a booking on the Frontend bypassing PayPal. It would be good to offer a private admin only screen where they could make bookings without having to use the dashboard.
Many thanks
Andy

Hi Andy, you could have two pages. One for regular users where you will need to pay with paypal and other page for admin users where you don’t have PayPal button in form. You can pass that option inside shortcode.

Best regards,
Nikola

Thanks, but I couldn’t find any shortcode options relating to turning paymeny (PayPal) on or off.

Thanks again,
Andy

Hi Andy it’s not in the docs. It is : use_paypal="1" and use_paypal="0" in your short code.

Best regards,

I’ve switched to WooCommerce now, is it still possible to bypass the payment screen?

Nikola Loncar Staff replied 3 days ago

You are right redirect is triggered in both cases. We can add switch to redirect similar as for that use_paypal if you want?

Need to use WooCommerce in order to use Stripe payment gateway (which all works great BTW). Can you provide a shortcode to bypass the redirect? If not I can tell the client admin that they have to use the Dashboard in order to make telephone bookings.

Thanks again.
