Log in to your administration panel, and you should see a brand new “Easy Booking” tab with its “Settings” sub-menu.
There are 2 tabs on top of the screen. Let’s make a small tour of the different settings you’ll find in there:
Calculation mode : Days or Nights
“Days” mode considers a product is booked from 00:01 to 23:59, while “Nights” mode considers the product is booked from 12:00 to 12:00 the next day.
Days mode allows to select the same date as start and end date.
One night equals two days in terms of pricing (e.g. a booking from January 1st to January 2nd equals 1 night or 2 days).
Make all products bookable?
Check this option to make all your products bookable. Any existing, new or modified product will be set as bookable if this is checked.
Don’t forget to uncheck it if you want to add not-bookable products in your store.
The following settings are applied to every product. You can change them individually on the product pages.
Number of dates to select
The number of dates to select for a booking:
Booking duration (for two dates mode only)
The price calculation will be made depending of these settings (e.g. 10$/day, 10$/week or 10$/3 days).
Minimum booking duration (for two dates mode only)
The minimum number of days/nights your clients have to pick to rent your products.
– 10 days minimum booking duration
– Start date: 01/01/2016
– Minimum end date: 10/01/2016
Note that if booking duration is “Weeks”, it will be 10 weeks minimum booking duration.
Same thing for custom period (e.g. for a 3 days booking duration: 3×10 = 30 days minimum booking duration)
Maximum booking duration (for two dates mode only)
The maximum number of days/nights your clients can pick to rent your products.

There are two available themes for the calendar:
You can change the colors of the calendar, in order to match your theme. Note that a light background and dark texts will have a better rendering, but you can do whatever you want!
Colors might be reset after an update, if it occurs save the settings again.
