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
When configuring the product in the app select the Variant based Duration option, then select the Variants represent date range checkbox, and enter the corresponding day ranges for each price break.
At this point the configuration will allow you to charge a set price based on the date range selected.
ie. 1-3 days = $10 - any duration between 1 and 3 days costs $10 total
If you want to charge a per day rate based on the date range complete the next step.
ie. 1-3 days = $10/day - a duration of 1 day is $10, 2 days is $20, and 3 days would be $30
In the app admin navigate to Page Settings from the Settings section -> Product Page tab -> and enable 'Date range updates quantity?'
Note: with either method you need to enable your theme's quantity selector on the product page. You can also enable it and hide it for a better customer experience.
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.
