This article will walk you through the available pricing options available when using Shopify and Book That App. Pricing is managed within Shopify and not the app and there are a few ways to set up pricing:
1. Shopify Variants
Using this method, you would set up Shopify variants to represent each duration and the associated price point. This price would represent the total charge for the entire duration. You would then set up BookThatApp to capture a start date for the rental using Booking Form 1.
1 Day = $25
3 Days = $75
2. Daily Rate
With this method you would set the price of the product to represent a daily rate. You would then set up Book That App to capture a date range for the rental using Booking Form 2. Next, in the app's Settings page, go to the Product tab and tick the box next to "Date Range Updates Quantity".
This method will calculate the price as the daily rate x the number of days selected in the date range.
3. Price Breaks Based on Rental Duration
You can also create price breaks based on the duration selected in a date range. Using this method you would set up your price breaks in Shopify using variants based on the duration.
1-3 days = $10/day
4-6 days =$8/day
You would then set up Book That App to capture a date range for the rental using Booking Form 2.
Next, in the app's Settings page, go to the Product tab and tick the box next to "Date Range Updates Quantity". Finally, in the BTA product page, select Duration based on Variant Options and enter the corresponding day ranges for each price break.
This method will calculate the price using the appropriate variant based on the date range selected x the number of days in the date range selected.
1. Can I do seasonal price breaks ?
No, not at the moment as Shopify does not support seasonal pricing
2. Can I have different pricing for different days of the week?
No, not at the moment as Shopify does not support pricing based on the days of the week.
3. Can I change the price based on when the customer makes their booking?
No, not at the moment as Shopify does not support date based pricing. However we recommend setting a Cut Off date and having customers "Call for Pricing" for same day or near term rentals.
