Hi I would like to ask how should I do, or which way I should go to achieving the following..
I am helping my client to build an apartments rental site. Generally is like booking a hotel, but we have one room, but many locations.
Generally I can manage to build the functions, but I am getting stuck or confused on one of the issues. Pricing.
My client wants to set per item (location) a completely different pricing scheme. Generally speaking, there will be 3 prices, high, regular and low. They want to assign the price to different date range.
House one, from Jan 15 to Feb 23, they want to rent it as the peak season price, from Feb 24 - Oct 3 regular price, rest are low season price, and the dates are going to be customizable.
House two, other day ranges, with different price.
I am wondering, how should I approach to this feature.
In my mind, either somewhere we can set 3 prices, and has a date picker which I can choose the dates, and when populating the price, it check the dates etc. Which might be very complicated.
They other way, is with one price, the highest price set in the system, and we create discounts for each product, different discounts amounts for different period of time.
But I can’t find a field or somewhere to set , where to set the discount period, is it I can just use the date tab in EE?
I am still brainstorming about this, can you please give me some advice, and point me a direction? Thanks!
