With Price Rules, you have the ability to automate adding surcharges or discounts to your service pricing.

Tip: Using Price Rules eliminates manual adjustments, saving you time and automatically charges the correct price such as a holiday fee or higher weekend rates, eliminating errors and ensuring the full fee is charged. You can create as many price rules as you need and combine options in one price rule to create the appropriate price.

Tip: If you need to define a price rule involving more than 1 than one factor, such as $5 extra for a Weekend and an additional $5 on a holiday, after you add the first "If," click "Add Another If," as many times as needed, then add the price for the complete rule. See Adding a Price Rule to see how to add various combinations of pricing for client types, public holidays, at weekend, on weekdays and other times.
