Note: This setting is only applied when a group of guests makes a booking together under one reservation.
Below the examples of when to use which mode.
1. Charge each person
This mode sets a price per person and allows reducing the unit price when there are more guests booking the same product together. Think of a private Spanish class that can take up to 6 participants.
With the pricing above one guest only would pay 50€ for a class. Two participants will split the cost and each would pay 25€. If there are 3 participants or more you offer a discount and each guest pays 20€ per class.
2. Charge once per group
Commonly used for transfer services or accommodation.
Example 1: Transfer service
You offer a transfer service for 30€. The car can take up to 4 guests and the price is the same whether one guest is taking a ride or 4 guests are sharing the same car ride. In this situation, set a price to charge once per group (as displayed above).
However, if there's a group of more than 4 guests you will need to organise 2 cars for the transfer. In this case, you can have the additional setting ''Advance group charge'' set to ''Every group of 4 people''.
Every time a group will exceed 4 guests an additional charge of 30€ will be applied.
Example 2: Camping pits
Imagine you offer camping pits for up to 10 guests. The base price for up to 5 guests is 50€. Every additional person is charged an extra 5€ per night. See the price setup below:
The system first checks how many guests are booking the product together and then applies the corresponding price. In case there are 7 guests the total price per night would be 60€, 8 guests will pay 65€, and so on.
