Add-ons are items that you can sell in addition to the rooms booked during the booking process.
After the guest choose a room, the items with their descriptions and rates will show up before the guest confirm their room booking.
You can manage your add-on items in the Add-on Setup

1. Add-on Setup

Add-on items can be viewed and setup at the Add-Ons Tab under the Setup section on the left side navigation menu.

1.1 How to create and modify add-ons?

    For normal operations, leave the selection blank (default).

    Based on length of stay - the rate is charged on per night basis (cost x # of nights stayed)
    Adults per night - the rate is charged on per adult per night basis (cost x # of nights stayed x # of children)
    Children per night - the rate is charged on per child per night basis (cost x # of nights stayed x # of children)

After the add-on item is created, you can view your item list in the Add-on List as shown below:

Copy an add-on item: you can create an add-on item more quickly by clicking on the "Copy" action link to create a duplicate add-on item, with a new name "Original_AddOn_Name_copy". The newly created item will have the same settings as the original one.
