Overview: What are we talking about?
An automated charge can be set up to automatically charge a fee if a pet checks out after a certain time. To do this, we will create a Pricing Rule.
Important! As with all Pricing Rules, all late check out fees will apply to all animals. They cannot only charge for one animal from the same family.

Set it Up: Let's get started.Check Out After a Specific Time
- Navigate to Left-hand Navigation: Admin » Pricing Rules.
- Select the Location and Reservation Type that you want this rule to apply to.
- Click Add Rule to create a new discount.
|Late Check-Out||Check out After||1900||Dollar||5.00|
Alternatively, you can select Reservation Type from the Method drop-down if you add another unit of reservation after a specific time. For example: if you add a Half Day of Daycare to the reservation if they are not picked up after a certain time.
|Half Day Charge||Check out After||1900||Reservation Type||Half Day Daycare|
This is how to set up a building check out fee that increases by the amount of time after check out ($5 for every hour passed). The Amount will be charged to each animal, at each increment.
Check Out After Hours of Operation Recurring Check Out Fee (by the minute/hour...etc)
This is how to set up a building check out fee that increases by the amount of time after your hours of operation. This is best used if you close at different times of the day throughout the week and would like to charge a check out fee that increases over time.
Write the number of minutes passed your check out time that you would like this rule to run.
As you can see in our example, we have one that charges at the check out time, one that charges 1 hour passed, and one that charges 2 hours passed.
