We have already seen how one can setup discounted charges for WooCommerce Rentals based on the number of days to book in our previous post. In that post, we configured service using Price by range of days feature of our Booking & Appointment Plugin for WooCommerce with WooCommerce Simple product. We can apply same booking settings for WooCommerce Variable products as well. Let’s take a look at setting various products in WooCommerce based on the number of days booked.
Let’s say you are providing party dresses on rent and you want your customer to first select the party dress from the available variety and accordingly charge discounted rates based on selected number of days. This can be achieved using WooCommerce Variable product which allows you to create several variations like dress colors, dress sizes etc.
You can convert this Variable product into a bookable product by using our Booking & Appointment Plugin for WooCommerce. Let us take an instance where one can setup product of party wear dresses on rent and set its charges based on the number of days the dress is rented for.
Setup variable products in WooCommerce based on number of days to book: Admin Experience
Firstly, you need to create a product Party Dress Rentals from Products->Add Products link. You can create attributes and variations for the dress by following the documentation on how to create a Variable product in WooCommerce.
Created attributes and its variations for dress are as follows:
- Color: Black and Red
- Size: Large and Extra Large
Following are all the created variations and its charges for the dress. These variations can be selected by the customer on the front end and according to the selection, the price will be displayed.
- Red – any size – $300
- Black – any size – $400
We have created all the required variations and its prices for the dress with WooCommerce Variable product as stated above.
Now go to the Products page where you created the product and you will 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.
Note: For a variable product you need to publish the product once you have created all the attributes and its variations, else it will not show any attributes and variations in the Price by range of days tab while adding the ranges for the 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
Moving ahead, let’s say you want your customer to be charged less when a dress is rented between 3 to 5 days and on selected particular color and size. We have Price by range of days feature which allows you to set price per day or fixed price based on the number of days and as per the variations of the product.
Options to do so is available in the Price by range of days tab in Booking meta box as shown below:

Select Price By Range Of Nights option from Block Pricing tab. Selecting this option will show the table where you can add required price ranges. In the table, clicking on Add New Range button, a new row to add price range will appear where you can select Variations and set Minimum and Maximum number of days, and it’s Per Day or Fixed price. You can create multiple prices by range like shown below:
