At Please.com we’re super excited to finally launch the beta next month. Our development team is make sure you get the best travel experience in one place.

Last week, we restricted search to return inactive-private trips and implemented a separate endpoint for searching for services. With our renewed homepage and search results, "Add service to trip" functionality now works with our new API.

For service providers and trip curators, we now have an “Earn money” page that will allow them to, well, earn money.

A reservation system was also created for our local services. We finally heard back from Zomato and its integration is now complete.

We have created a dashboard to keep track of Amazon web service Lambda invocations. Also, pool size of Mongoose connections has been reduced to to 1 per Lambda

List of features that were added:

1. Search for services

2. Homepage updated

3. Earn Money Page added

List of bugs that were fixed:

List of major chores:
