Bookings Use Case: Cost based on Person Count


↑ Back to top

You have a bookable product for which you would like to set different prices based on the person count.

The example product below will show you how to offer different prices based on the person count. One important thing to note here is that you can’t charge two different prices at the same time if you add 2 or more product quantities.

For example, if you add a single quantity, the charge, as per this case scenario, will be $145. But if you add two persons, the charge will be $230 ($115 each).

On the Costs tab, leave both the Base cost and Block cost as zero. The prices along with their progressive discounts will be defined with ranges. Using our example of a single person being charged $145 each, and 2+ people being charged $115, this is how it’d look:

Publish the bookable product you’ve just created and you’ll notice the following results.
