Using NopCommerce for a Bed and Breakfast...

10 months ago
I've been using NopCommerce for several years now for a couple websites. I've done fresh installs and upgrades, even compiled some custom changes before. What I haven't done, is use the rental option for a product. Now that the wife has retired, we are going to set up the new house as a bed and breakfast with 5 rooms available, Friday and Saturday nights will be 50% higher rate.

I'm assuming that I want 5 products, with an inventory of 1 for each, and I'll use the day of the week discount plugin I found here on a fresh install of NopCommerce 4.1.

Not having used the rental option, I have concerns about double booking. I'm assuming that with an inventory quantity of 1 for each of the 5 room products, that will be taken care of. Any experience with that out there?

It would be nice to have a way to show the customer what rooms are available for a given date range. Not sure there is a plugin for that. Such a plug in should display for a single product, or several in a group. Seems like a simple gridview from the database with some color shaded dates would work.

I'm going to need to set this up and have it running by 7/1/19, so I have some time. I just want to do it right and avoid those cloud based fee services - airbnb is getting about 20% of the booking money off the top. I also like to know where my data is, and who has access to it.

Let me know what you think, and thanks for your help and guidance.

Looking for the same here, avoiding the double booking of same product at same dates.

Have a look at this plugin which can be used for bed and breakfast room bookings https://www.nopcommerce.com/boards/topic/72142/now-available-accommodation-reservation-booking-system-plugin
