In this article we are going to show you the steps on how to change the booking rates for different seasons with the WooCommerce Booking & Appointment Plugin.
First step is to create your product in WooCommerce by clicking the Product -> Add Product where you will find a Product Data metabox. You can now set the regular price of your product below it.
Second step is to setup your booking options for the hotel rooms using the Booking metabox on the same page. You can enable the booking date and multiple day booking. You can also set a limit using Lockout Data after X orders field that block the booking once it reaches the maximum.
Third step is set the advance booking period under the Bookable Time Period Tab. By setting it, there are no last minute reservations for the product and the earliest booking can be done prior to the booking date. The Number of Dates to choose will set the maximum number of days such as for a month or year.
Fourth step, under the Booking meta-box, a new tab will be visible once the Seasonal Pricing addon is activated. Go to the said tab and enable seasonal pricing where you will see a “Add new season” button, click on that and fill in the number of fields. Seasonal pricing addon allows you to create a new season and set higher or lower prices. There are two techniques to set the prices, the Seasonal Pricing Percent and the Seasonal Pricing Value.
By enabling the Seasonal Pricing Percent, it will calculate the new rate by adding or subtracting on per day basis of the percent.
By enabling the Seasonal Pricing Value, it will calculate the new rate by flat addition or subtraction of the amount entered to the original rate.
