Booking Calendar
[resolved] Valuation Days (8 posts)

    Good morning,

    I need to add an extra cost to the resources if they are booked only for one night. I know that I can set on that extra cost on valuation days, but since I have the cost of each resource set by night and not by day, I cannot activate the feature. Is there any other way to work around this?

    Thanks in advance,
    Luís Correia

    Hello.
    You can set the cost per day at the General Booking Settings page at Cost section.
    Then at the Booking > Resources > Cost and rates page by clicking on "Valuation days" button you can configure the cost like this:
    For 2nd day = 0 USD for the specific day"

    This cost configuration will be the same, if you selected the cost per day. So now, you can configure other "Valuation days" cost settings.
    Kind regards.

    Thanks for your answer, but like I said on my previous post, I know if I set the cost per day I can use the valuation days feature to add an extra cost to each resource.

    But that's the issue, I need to set the cost per night to give the clients the exact cost of their bookings. If someone books a room for 4 days (3 nights), the cost needs to be based on the number of nights and not days, that's why I asked if there's any other way to work around this issue.

    But If you will set for the all resources in "Valuations cost" settings this option:

    For 2nd day = 0 USD for the specific day

    the system will calculate the cost exactly, if you was set the cost per night and not the cost per day. Just try to test it.

    It doesn't work, if I set the cost per night I cannot access the valuation days feature, it says that I need to set the cost per day to be able to activate the feature...

    Hello.
    Sorry, you do not understood.

    1) you are need to set the cost "per day".
    2) set the valuations cost settings, like this:
    "for 2nd day = 0 USD per selected date"

    After these configuration, the plugin will calculate the cost of your bookings in the same way, if you would set the cost per night.

    But now also, you can configure also other cost configuration in the "Valuation cost" settings.

    Kind regards.

    I understood that and I said that I knew that I needed to set the cost per day to use the Valuation days feature but, try to understand that I need to set the price for each resource per night, that is mandatory to my client!

    When someone books a resource for several days the final cost is calculated by the cost per night (base price + 10% VAT). If someone books a resource only for one day the cost should be calculated also by the cost per night (base price + 10% VAT) + 10% extra fee (because is booking only one day).

    So if I set the price per day like you are saying, the final cost will be calculated by the cost per day (base price + 10% VAT + 10% extra fee) and then in the Valuation days I would need to set the price for a 2nd day without that 10% extra fee, in case someone books more than one day.

    It doesn't make sense because it's like working backwards and because that extra fee is an exception, and not the other way around...

    Is there any way to make the valuation days work with the cost per night? Or is it something that you would change or a next update?

    Hello again.
    We will add the support of "Valuation days" in the future update (but it's will not exist in the next update 5.0, which is almost ready).
    Kind regards.
