Add a shopping cart to all booking types

Until now, the shopping cart was only available for offers. Now, we have enabled it for all booking types, so that you can e.g. add rental equipment to an activity, or a bookable menu to a table booking.

How to enable the shopping cart for your booking:

Step 1:

Open item > click on create/edit booking > add product catalog

Step 2:

Add the shopping cart to your form fields - this way it will appear on the booking form displayed to your guests.

The shopping cart is now available for:

  • activities
  • offers
  • table / daybed / sport court / seat bookings
  • convention activities

In the admin area: Table / daybed / sport court / seat bookings

A shopping cart icon indicates if a booking has a shopping cart attached. Open the details of this booking, and find the shopping cart items attached at the bottom:
