Template structures are useful when you have multiple products following the same pricing structure, even if they're priced differently.
Price placeholder and example price
Unlike a regular structure, a template structure doesn't contain a product's actual price; it uses a placeholders instead. You can fill in an example price to see how the structure works with differently priced products:
The multiplier regulates the factor by which a product’s price is multiplied.
For a 3-day rental period, Booqable multiplies the price with the multiplier found in the tile for 3 days.
In the example above, the price would be multiplied by 2.5, charging 2.5 times the product price for a 3-day rental.
Here's a simple example in which the first day is full price, and each day after is half the charge:
Using the above structure, renting a $50.00 product for 4 days would cost $125:
( 1 * $50 ) + ( 3 * ( 0,5 * $50 ) ) = $125
Here's a slightly more complex pricing structure, in which one day is charged at full price. Then, the price is slightly less for the second and third day.
Each extra day after that is at half price.
Using this structure, renting a $50.00 product for 4 days would cost:
( 2,5 * $50 ) + ( 0,5 * $50 ) = $150
Pro tip: You can also use the example price to reverse-calculate a multiplier.
Applying a template structure to a product
The example - and placeholder prices don't influence a product's actual price.
The price that's applied to the structure is configured in a product's Pricing tab:
