Solved: blocking was done from Wordfence from a site in a higher level Wordpress installation in a higher level folder. Added wordfecne to this subfolder installation as well, and did not have the problem anymore. Using v6.4.7 and whenever I want to change plugin settings, e.g. change the email sender's name and address, I get this error from Wordfence: A potentially unsafe operation has been detected in your request to this site Your access to this service has been limited. (HTTP response code 403) If you think you have been blocked in error, contact the owner of this site for assistance.

The plugin is one of my favourite ones. You can customize it and I like the design.
20. Februara 2024.
The plugin itself offers some good options, but is flawed in some places and not fully thought through. The support is extremely poor. Enquiries before purchasing the Pro version simply go unanswered and replies from Pro support take several weeks and are then not helpful. I am therefore now once again looking for a professional solution with good support.The plugin is well suited for simple ticket sales without high demands. Therefore 2 stars.
