Installation

To install QuickCab, download it from the CodeCanyon website after purchase. Once it has been downloaded unzip the file and upload the quickcab_plugin.zip file to your WordPress website either through the user interface or by unzipping it and using an FTP.

Please ensure WooCommerce is installed before you install QuickCab! It will not work without it.

If you want to update QuickCab with any of the future updates that will be published you will first need to delete the old version of QuickCab from your website (this will not delete your QuickCab data). After this, upload the new version of QuickCab to your site and activate it.

Preliminaries

Ensure you have selected the correct time zone you are in. To do this go to Settings > General and select a location closest to you, not a UTC offset.

Displaying the Form

To display the QuickCab form, use the ‘quickcab_form’ shortcode.

Google API Key Setup

API Keys are now required to use Google Maps API. This guide explains how to obtain a Google Maps API key:
