FAQ Q134: What are additional products?

Additional products are either extra charges always added to the bill (such as visitor's taxes or final cleaning) or one-time optional products or services (such as airport pick-up, water skis for motorboat rentals, etc.), or recurring products (such as breakfast). You can specify the products, pricing and other options in the settings tab. It's up to you to decide whether the products are selected by default and whether only the administrators can add/remove them to reservations. If you allow customers to book additional products, you can also specify till when they can add or remove them. By default the users can pick additional products only at the time of reservation.

Here are some of the settings of an additional product:

Please note that additional products are always selected on the second reservation page (after entering the dates/personal details etc.). If you want to allow the customer to select products on the single reservation screen (with the dates/personal details etc.) you can add these products in form of reservation form items and then add rules to the pricing manager to change the final price based on the selected products (more about the difference between additional products and reservation form items can be found in this FAQ question).

Another type of additional products are custom products which you can add as the administrator to existing reservations on the reservation details page. Custom products' price and product description are not fixed, they are entered individually each time you want to add an item to the customer's invoice. They are useful to keep track of additional services or products the customer purchased during their stay/rental.
