never used it

if your coding for a commercial business make sure you understand what your doing and check your liability insurance. Normally you would be required to submit card details as hotels normally require payment when you cancel a booking with less than 48 hrs notice. Its usually a swipe of the card which is held in the event you dont cancel and just dont bother turning up.

You cant rely on extensions when building dynamic applications when there is a client at the other end! The reason for this is that initially you may build the requirement using said plug-in and everyone is happy but clients always want additional tweaks to the point where it will almost be a rebuild and if you don't understand how to code then how do you tell the client you cant give them what you want because you don't know how to do it?

learn to code and ditch the plug-ins

Now i've installed it, wht do i do next? Get to know it, learn it. Contact the developer about it with questions and make sure you know what you're doing. (and this forum is not a support forum for third party extensions ;-) )

learn how to code

try PHP

tutorials to get started are on this site although these wont provide a solution

its a long process and will take time to understand so maybe your client may need to go elsewhere until you can code competently
