Add-ons/Packages

Is there a way to create add-ons on the reservations page that people can add to their reservation - for example, a cake for anniversaries/birthdays, packaged deals, etc?

Hi Abiquiu,

Yes, you can do that. Those are called "optional surcharges". Go to Settings > Surcharges and create one, select optional surcharges and then fill out the rest. Lot of options there, so let me know if something is confusing. Depending on the criteria you select, the guest would then be able to select those during the quote acceptance process (ie. when booking).

For instance, here's a quote where someone has added things like Bounce House and Wedding Events to be selected. This is what the guest sees when they're accepting the quote and booking.

Each add-on/optional item can also have a full rich-text description with pictures. For instance, in the above example, if you click on the "what is this" link next to the bounce house, the guest would see this.

Is this outside of OTA functionality, ie your own website, or does it work on Airbnb, etc

Apologies! I just saw your reply. This is functionality that only exists in the OwnerRez booking process (ie. Book Now widgets, hosted website, accepting a quote, etc). If the guest books on a channel, these add-ons aren't available unless you have them on the channel somewhere too. I don't know of any channels that support add-ons but there might be one I don't know about.

Okay, I did a little digging

This might be a cool new feature for you, perhaps wired to your own functionality. I certainly would be interested.

I didn't check the others, but in AirBnB, it basically seems to be through the Resolution Center > Create a New Resolution > Request Payment for Extra Services. This would be in concert with mentioning the extra services.

A couple useful links for your perusal (how tos):
