How to enable people count as separated bookings

To better manage your booking products, the plugin gives you the possibility to count every person as a different booking until the number of bookings per unit is reached. To do it, you need to enable the option Count people as separated bookings as shown below.

count-peopleOnce reached the unit configured, the product will be no longer bookable and a message will show to users to inform them of the maximum allowed number of people for the booking.

Let’s make an example:

we have created a Boat Tour available to 50 persons per day with a cost of $150 per day from Monday to Friday and $200 per day on Saturday and Sunday.
