Although WP Event Manager Zoom works standalone, it also pairs flawlessly with the original plugin and allows you to differentiate virtual events from non-virtual events.

The Zoom extension enhances the WP Event Manager plugin by automatically generating all necessary information about an event submission onto a single event page. You can organize and display the Zoom meeting details either in the Block view or in a sidebar.

  1. Does this also integrate with a typical Woocommerce store? For example, if the site sells Zoom meetings, in-person meetings, and t-shirts. Can someone register for a zoom (and/or an in-person meeting) and buy a t-shirt, checking out via one checkout page?
