Rental Products

Rental products are your main products that you rent out. Even if your main product is officially a service, in Booqable you will want to add it as a rental product.
There are two types of rental products:

  1. Trackable
  2. Bulk

It is not possible to convert between rental product types, and it is not possible to convert between the two types of rental products. Once you create a rental product, it will remain that type of rental product.

1. Trackable

Trackable Products tend to be the larger ticket items; the products you want to know specifically who has what stock item of what product and when.
With trackable products, every stock item is has its own identifier so you can assign and track the individual products.

2. Bulk

Bulk products are for those products you don't necessarily need to track each specific stock item but rather you just need to know how many you have in stock. These tend to be your smaller ticket items or items that are quicker to replace in bulk if some are lost.

Service Products

Service Item or Service Products are the optional extra services (or items) your want to offer to your products. These are not trackable, therefore they do not have an instock number. 

Service items cannot be added to your website as a product card or button like other products. Service items will only appear at the bottom of the cart with a toggle. 

Consumables

Consumable products are products that you do not plan on getting back. These are meant to be small items that you plan on selling along with a rental but do not expect to be returned with the rest of the order. 

Consumable products can be added to an order on their own, however the items will still need to have a pick up and a return date selected in the order.

Custom Line Items

If you do not want to create a product for the booqable back end for a one time product on a rental order, you can use a custom line item on the order. The custom line will only show up on that order.

You can also use the custom line for negative amounts to give a discount to the order of an amount rather than the percentage discount at the bottom.

Bundles

Bundles allow for a single product to be made up of multiple other booqable products from within Booqable. This makes it possible for you to track the status of multiple smaller products within a single larger products (the bundle).

For more information about how to create a bundle, you can view this help center article

Converting between product Types

It is not possible to change product types. It is not possible to convert trackable products into bulk products and it is not possible to change between rental products, service items, and consumables.

If you created a product incorrectly, you will want to create a new product in the correct tracking method and remove the old one.
