To create a package product type you may add a new product (See Products - add a product article. ) and check the Is Package option. You can also edit an existing product and transform it into a package product later, if needed.
To create the price of your package you can proceed in two different ways:
set a price for the main package product and add supplements for which do not check "Include In Total".
Ex.: if you package price is 1000EUR, don't check Included in Total for the supplements prices (in the above example the supplement is Daily massage).
When the product is booked, the price charged will be the price of the package, in this case 1000EUR.
set the price for main package product to be zero and add supplements with prices that will build up the package final price.
This means to check "Included in Total" for prices that will build the final total prices of the package.
To add a price to your package type product, see Add a price to a product article and don’t forget to check the One time charge box so the price to be applied only once for the entire duration of the product.
The package manager tab is split into four sections:
in the upper left corner there is the package tree where you can see what products are added as supplements
In the upper right corner you can search for products to be added as supplements
in the lower right corner there are shown the prices to be linked to the supplements selected
In the lower left corner there are the prices that have been already linked to the supplements
To add a product as supplement, search for the product in Product list field then drag and drop it into Package Tree area until properly set.
If you need to edit or delete a supplement from the Package Tree, select the product and click on edit or delete symbol.
