Overview: What are we talking about?
Automated surcharges can be created to automatically charge a set extra dollar amount or percentage-based charges per unit of the reservation (day/night/hour), per animal, on specified dates. These are great for holidays or special events, where you may change your pricing to account for volume.
Helpful Hints: Before you begin.
Peak date charges are per day and the same for each animal.
Set it Up: Let's get started.
Creating Peak Date Charges
The system will automatically create a surcharge for each unit of the reservation that falls within the date range. If you charge for boarding by the night, the charge will apply to every night which falls on a peak date. If you charge by the day, the charge will apply to each calendar date with a peak date rule.
- Navigate to Left-hand Navigation: Admin » Pricing Rules.
- Select the Location and Reservation Type that you want this rule to apply to.
- Click Manage Peak Rates, and fill out the form.
|From Date||Enter the date when this charge will start in format MM/DD/YYYY|
|To Date||Enter the date when this charge will end in format MM/DD/YYYY|
|Type||Select dollar amount or percentage of daily/nightly base rate to surcharge.|
|Amount||Enter dollar amount or percentage to surcharge (written as a positive number)|
|Label||Label the surcharge as it will display on estimates, receipts, and in the cart.|
|Repeating||If you wish to repeat this peak date every year, indicate so by ticking the Repeating box.|
If the Peak Dates Charge by Calendar Date setting is set to on in Left-hand Navigation: Admin » System-Wide Settings, the system will charge for each calendar day the pet is checked in, regardless of the reservation types charge by setting.
Peak Date Charges in Action
Peak dates will now apply to each unit of the reservation that falls within the peak date range.
