Multiple pricing rules to maximize business opportunities
Flexible booking/reservation options to suit different businesses
- Set flexible price rules: you have the option for setting different prices for different days, different times and different types/variants of the same product
- Offer gradual/ staggered pricing (increasing or decreasing): good for those who wish to increase or reduce prices nearer to the actual occurrence of an event.
- Promote your booking\reservation products by pricing items differently when higher quantities are purchased.
- Flexible "exclude days" rules: Similar to ‘blackout’ days with airlines, prevent bookings/reservations for certain dates
- Option to set billable periods by “day” or “hours”: makes this extension suitable for date-time-date and time-based products, e.g. hotel room/consulting attendance/rental products
- Set available times for bookings and reservations, e.g. reservations can be made only from 8:00 AM - 6:00 PM
- Specify date and time period of product availability, making this extension useful for products that are available for limited time periods such as a particular play or movie
- Allow multiple reservations for the same time based on available quantity of the bookable product: for example, a car wash with 3 boxes could allow 3 reservations in the same time slot
