QuickCab is a powerful WordPress plugin for any business that provides transport as a service. It facilitates the price estimation, booking and payment of journeys. QuickCab has been professionally designed to provide a high quality user experience both for customers and admins.
QuickCab allows for the creation of multiple, complex pricing conditions to accommodate for any situation. You can charge based on distance, time, number of passengers, and number of luggage items. Alternatively, you can also use our powerful geofence pricing conditions allowing you to draw custom areas on a map and charge a specified amount to collect/drop off in that area. You can also add uber-style surge charges, for example multiplying fares by 1.5x in rush hour.
Because QuickCab is compatible with WooCommerce, it allows for a wide variety of options and customisations. Customers can pay by Card, Cash, PayPal or more. It is up to you how you customise the experience.
Geofence Pricing Conditions
Draw two geofence areas on the map, if someone is picked up inside one and dropped off in the other you can either set a fixed price for that journey or increase the price by a fixed amount/multiplier.
Create Your Own Pricing Structure
Charge passengers based on, duration, distance, number of passengers, and number of suitcases. Combined with surge pricing and geofence pricing conditions QuickCab allows you to create a truly unique pricing structure that will suit your business.
.pot files are provided to allow for easy translation.
Uber-style Surge Pricing
Charge an increased amount for using your service at certain times of the day.
Almost everything your clients will interact with can be customised allowing you to create a truly unique experience that suits your business perfectly.
QuickCab was designed by an industry professional with years of experience. The code powering it is well structured and simple to edit.
The booking form is responsive and looks great on all devices.
QuickCab will keep track of bookings to ensure no vehicle is overbooked.
QuickCab is fully compatible with WooCommerce allowing you to take payments easily from card, PayPal or cash and take advantage of the huge WooCommerce eco-system of additional plugins.
QuickCab is constantly getting new features. You will get the full benefit of all these features for no extra cost. If you have a request for a feature, get in touch. If it’s a useful feature that will benefit many customers I’ll add it in one of the future updates.
Intuitive Admin Area
The admin area is very intuitive with helper text explaining what settings do next to fields and a simple layout.
Only want to pick up/drop off customers at specific destinations? No problem, with QuickCab you can ensure the customer can only select from a list of pre-defined locations for the collection address, the destination address, or both.
QuickCab allows you to create highly customisable vehicles with custom images, pricing structures, and vehicle information which QuickCab will use when calculating quotes for your customers.
The different pricing options for vehicles includes:
- Base price
- Price per mile/kilometer (including tiered pricing)
- Price per minute
- Price per hour (including tiered pricing)
- Price per passenger
- Price per suitcase
Geofence Pricing Conditions
QuickCab has the very powerful, market-leading feature of Geofence pricing rules. This allows you to draw custom areas on the map, if a customer is picked up in one of the regions and dropped off in the other you can either set a fixed price for that journey or increase it by an amount/multiplier.
Optionally, you can just draw one geofence area on the map and set the other location to ‘anywhere’. This will allow you to apply the custom pricing rule to any journey that begins or ends in a certain area. This would be useful if, for example, you want to charge an additional $5 to drop someone off at the airport.
Tiered Pricing Rules
QuickCab allows you to easily define a tiered pricing rule for either distance-based pricing rules, or duration-based.
You can define prices for certain ranges, for example 0-10 miles = £1.00/mile, 11-20 miles = £0.80/mile, 21+ miles = £0.60/mile.
Surge Pricing Rules
Define Uber-like surge pricing rules either for a fixed date and time, or for a regular weekly intervals.
You can either increase the price by a multiplier (e.g. x1.2) or by a fixed amount (e.g. +£2.00).
If your business only picks up/drops off from certain destinations then you can make the user choose from a predefined list of addresses instead of letting them type it themselves.
Along with the default WooCommerce pages to manage and view your existing orders, QuickCab also provides a calendar view of orders to give you a quick view of upcoming orders.
There are multiple different time scales available (month, week, day, list) and you can choose your favourite in the QuickCab settings which will be used as the default. You can hover over each order in the calendar to get a quick overview of the important details.
The Journey Information is displayed in emails to both admins and customers to give a quick overview of the order.
