You can configure the allowed rental periods in your Online Store to let your customers choose from predefined durations, fixed time slots, or let them select any dates and times within your operating hours.
Go to Settings > Online Reservations to set up the allowed rental periods.
Note: These options only affect the Online Store. You can always choose any rental period from Booqable's backend.
Dates and times
Let your customers choose any dates and times within your operating hours to pick up and return items.
Optionally, you can disable the time selection to ask for dates only.
With time selection disabled, orders come in at the times you set up as your Default order times (fixed times only).
Let your customers choose from predefined order durations.
For example 1 hour, 1 day, 1 week or 1 month.
Similar to the first option, you can disable time selection altogether.
With time selection disabled, orders come in at the times you set up as your Default order times.
For rentals shorter than 24 hours, the customer can only select a pickup time; the return time is set automatically.
Note: If fixed durations conflict with your operating hours, some periods are unavailable.
Fixed time slots
Let your customers choose from predefined time slots during the day.
For example, between 09:00 and 10:00, between 13:00 and 15:00, and between 19:00 and 21:00.
Note: When using fixed time slots, you don't need to set up operating hours.
To prevent conflicts, it's best to disable Operating hours altogether.
Time picker increments
Reduce the number of choices available on the time picker by setting the interval to 15 minutes, 30 minutes, or 1 hour.
Prevent last-minute reservations
If you need some time before customers come to pick up their items, you can set a minimum notice for reservations.
