“The breadth of functionality you get for the cost of the plug in is impressive”

A lot of plugin for the price! We’ve been using Event Espresso to manage an ongoing roster of classes. The breadth of functionality you get for the cost of the plug in is impressive. It has the flexibility to manage sliding-scale payments, and custom messaging for different classes. We run one-day events and multiple-session courses. There is something of a learning curve to get it all set up, but support has been very good and responsive. They keep tweaking and improving things–I’m sure it’s going to get even better as it matures. –amandaraoul
