How can I use NopCommerce to run a Bed and Breakfast?

Posted: October 11, 2018 at 9:50 AM Quote #213070
I've set up several websites using NopCommerce, and I'm very happy with it. My next business is a Bed and Breakfast and I would like to use NopCommerce as the backbone. Is there a way to integrate a reservation system that would book a half dozen rooms and keep track of the dates and who they are reserved for?

Maybe there is some way to set up a product in the existing code? But I would still need some sort of scheduler to reserve the rooms for specific dates. I also don't want to charge the credit card the full amount until they check out, just a deposit to hold the room. Maybe there is a plugin for this?

Any thoughts? Bed and Breakfasts are exploding here in the states, you would think there would be better options for people with their own websites. I don't want to rely on AirBnB, they charge horrendous fees and can kick you completely out for refusing to book someone with a headscarf. I just don't like them having all the control over my business.

Not that nopcommerce cant do it, but you may look into Umbraco or a CMS. They have many more scheduling plugins available.

Have you got code developed that is ready to integrate as a package? I'd want to use the latest version of nopCommerce. I'm assuming there would be a few new tables.

Not at this stage but I was thinking of building a plugin for v4.1
There is a new table to manage the availabilities and it uses the product attributes plus a few add ons to product
Mostly it is conversion of 1.7 source code / concepts into new version
It would take a few weeks or so to get it up and running

I have not done any reasearch so not sure what other options are available
nopCommerce is a good platform to build on and there is probably is a need for a plugin like that :)
