Variants

Hello,

 

I want to setup a product for an event.  The product is a room that can either be booked as Single or Double Occupancy.  

 

What I want to do is have two variants - single or double occupancy.  As it is a room and cannot be booked by more than one person, I need shopify to mark the other variant out of stock when a booking is made.  Otherwise, someone could come along and book the other variant of the same room.

 

Is that possible?

 

thank you!

Hello, @sarahashford.

 

Thank you for reaching out and posting this question!

 

I understand that you're looking to create a product with variants that can be booked for certain number of days, and the product cannot be double booked by another customer during that time. While you can add a delivery date picker to your cart for customers to select dates, this doesn't provide the ability to manage bookies and prevent double bookings. Instead you'll want to consider using a third-party app, like BTA: Appointment Booking App, to manage these types of listings. The BTA: Appointment Booking App provides a dashboard that allows you to manage the bookings and it provides a calendar that can help prevent double bookings. If you need to get help with third-party apps, then the app developers are always available to assist you. Simply reach out to them using the contact information found at the bottom of their app's page.

 

That being said, I noticed that you're a new member of the Shopify Community and I'd love to hear more about your business. Aside from the rental room, what other types of products are you selling? Do you have a marketing plan prepared for your store?
