Simplified Quote for Customer

Would be great to see the system offer a simpler quote to customer when they fill out the Book Now/Inquiry form.

Simpler i.e. :
Rent: $1000
Cleaning: $75
Tax: $1075
Damage Deposit: $300
Total Due: $1375.00

Instead, they get a dizzying difficult to read quote .. see image: https://goo.gl/7lb254

I understand it's partly due to how I have setup my pricing but other major listing sites seem to be able to simplify quote somehow.

just my .02

Thanks!

Paul

Scratch my bad example's math... HA!

More like this:

Rent: $1000 (166.67 per night)
Cleaning: $75
Tax: $134.38
Damage Deposit: $300
Total Due: $1509.38

Yeah, that's a great idea for the widget. Maybe we have a "simplify charge descriptions" setting there that collapses the rent together and removes the type from the other surcharges.

I'll note that down in our dev list.

We've now released an update to allow this.

If you go into the Book Now/Inquiry widget settings you will find a checkbox for "Simplify Charge Details" (to turn on simple mode) and also uncheck "Quote Is Approximate" to remove "From" language.

How would we get email quotes text to be simplified? For example this is what it says 3 nights (date x - date x) during Winter 2018 at $250 per night

We don't currently have a way to automatically simplify the quote charge descriptions, but it is on the to do list. You could go and change charges manually and edit the descriptions.

What are you looking for in simplified charges?

Re: Simplified Quote for Customer

I would say simplified exactly like the widgets were simplified i.e.
Rent $860.00
Tax $109.65
Refundable Damage Deposit $400.00
Total $1,369.65

Right now I'm getting something like the following:
Charges
Item Description Rate Amount
Rent 7 nights (10/13 - 10/19, departing 10/20) during Early Fall 2018 at Week rate 1,575.00 $1,575.00
Tax Occupancy Taxes 12.75% $200.81
Surcharge Refundable Damage Deposit based on $400.00 per stay 400.00 $400.00

Re: Simplified Quote for Customer

I am all for the simplified email quote responder language. It is currently a detailed description, but I dint think people always get all the detail. They want simple numbers and a total, just like the inquiry/book widget does.

I agree, I prefer email quote would have all the detail as it has now. We could lose left most column where it says "rent" or "surcharge" as it is redundant anyway as description of line item has it.
