When the customer comes to your store, you have just a few seconds to convince them to book your service. Hence to convince them quickly you should have a proper setup of your service which is easy to understand and convenient to book. You might be wondering how to do that? It is possible with our Booking & Appointment Plugin for WooCommerce as we provide numerous booking options by which you can setup your bookable service as per your needs.
Many businesses do not bother about the quantity of their services booked by the customers rather they want their services to be booked for more number of days. For fulfilling this requirement, they also prefer to provide discounted price depending on the number of days their services are booked.
Let’s say you are providing trekking kits on rent and you want your customer to get discounted rates based on selected number of days. We have Price By Range Of Nights feature in our plugin which allows to setup the services with discounted charges based on the duration of booking.
Let’s start by creating a product Trekking Kit Rentals from Products->Add Products link. On the same Products page, you will also find the Booking Meta Box that allows you to setup your bookable product. Enable settings in Booking Meta box by clicking the Enable Booking option as shown below:
Enable Booking option
By enabling this setting, you can convert your normal WooCommerce product into a bookable product.
Now select Booking type as Only Day, upon which further two options will be displayed. Select Multiple Nights option and click the Save Changes button as shown below. Note that Price By Range Of Nights option only works with Multiple Nights booking.
Booking Type selected as Multiple Nights
As you can see in the below image of our Booking meta box, there is Block Pricing tab where you can either select Fixed Block Booking or Price By Range Of Nights. Today we are going to discuss about Price By Range Of Nights option, hence it is selected. This enables you to add price for trekking kit based on the range of days its booked for.
Select Price By Range Of Nights option
Now click on Add New Range button to set Minimum and Maximum number of days, its Per day price or Fixed price. You can create multiple range for prices depending on the number of days, like the following 3 price ranges have been created as shown in the below image:
- Renting for 1 day and its price $150
- Renting for 2 to 4 days and its fixed price $350
- Renting for 5 to 10 days and its per day price $150.
You have to ensure that the starting and ending days of your range don’t overlap.

In case you want to delete the created range then you can do it by clicking the Delete icons next to Fixed price column as shown above.
After completing all the above mentioned steps, the Trekking Kit Rentals product is now available for the customers to rent it for the number of days as per their requirement and enjoy the special price offered for that range of days.
