Theme Park tickets - Dynamic price base on calendar? HELP

Good Afternoon,

I am a theme park ticket re-seller and in order to set up my website I need a plugin/app to have a calendar inside the PRODUCT page and prices to be changed according to the date selected. All shopify apps have something very similar but they are all in the cart page and only for shipping, not individual products. Can someone please shed some light on how to perform this? Products that change prices when different dates selected in a calendar and also how to edit all these individual prices.

Thank you.

If nothing free is available and you're up to the work please share a quote 😃

Maybe we can do this using variants and then code it and make it to work as calendar, I think something like that is possible to setup.

So you set variants and their prices.

The calendar is always going to be the current month ? Depends on what the price will be different, week days or what ?

To implement dynamic pricing for theme park tickets or lake compounce prices on your Shopify website with a calendar-based selection, you'll need to use a combination of apps and potentially some custom development. Here's a step-by-step guide on how to achieve this:

  1. Select the Right Shopify App: You can start by selecting a Shopify app that allows for date-based price variations. Apps like "Advanced Product Options" or "Infinite Options" may offer the flexibility you need to add date-based options to individual products.

  2. Custom Development: Depending on the complexity of your requirements, you might need some custom development work. This could involve hiring a developer to create a custom solution tailored to your needs.

  3. Calendar Integration: Integrate a calendar picker into the product page. This can be done using HTML, JavaScript, and CSS. You can also use some Shopify themes that support this functionality.

  4. Price Variations: Configure the app to adjust prices dynamically based on the date selected. This would involve setting up different price points for each date or date range within the app. You can also set discounts or price increases accordingly.

  5. Testing: Thoroughly test your setup to ensure that prices change as expected based on the selected date. Make sure that the calendar integration works smoothly and that the correct prices are displayed and applied to the shopping cart.

  6. User Experience: Ensure that the user interface is intuitive and user-friendly. Customers should easily understand how to select a date and see the corresponding price changes.

  7. Documentation and Support: If you have custom development or a unique setup, provide clear documentation or support to assist customers in using the date-based pricing feature.

  8. Regular Updates: Keep your calendar and pricing options up to date, especially if your theme park has seasonal changes in pricing or special events.
