    I had the free version, and just now installed the pro version. There are now 2 plugins active in my dashboard.
    In this article is missing:
    * Should I or should i not delete the free version?
    * A new feature is also PAYMENT... (crucial difference to the free version right) So that should be set up too... right?
    * There must be much more new features , right? Which are they then?
    * I miss explanation about that 1 license can be used 1 time for 1 website.
    * I miss the following: after the purchase , I received TWO zipfiles.. (not only one " so what am I supposed to do with this second zip file ?!! of which the name is : "bookly-responsive-appointment-booking-tool.16.1" ....?

    All in all i find this installation instruction incomplete. Is this because you also sell a package of $20,- for installation?
    Evenso... I guess 80% of the installation is done now by me. I will get to the 100%. But this documentation is not complete.

    Hopefully you will add the missing pieces. THank you very much.
    With kind regards, Judith
