Automatic Holiday Rates
Holiday rates allow you to configure days of the year that you charge an additional fee for providing services to your clients. These fees are automatically applied when scheduling new services for a Client and when a Client requests services through the portal.
Create a New Holiday Rate
- Navigate to Services.
- Click on the “Holidays” tab.
- Click the “New Holiday” button.
- Fill out the holiday name, the cost, and the day of the year this holiday falls on.
- Click “Save Changes”.
Some Holidays are on the same day/month every year. These will automatically be applied each year without any additional work on your part. If however you are setting up a Holiday that has a varying day/month each year you will need to adjust Changes Each Year? to Date Varies Each Year. You can then setup each year's day and month to ensure accurate billing. We recommend setting up at least a few years in advance.
Applying Holiday Rate
When scheduling services for a client the holiday rate can be seen under the Extras section.
The rate for this holiday can be customized here for any scheduled service. You can also remove the rate by unchecking the checkbox next to the Holiday Rate.
You can add a holiday rate to any scheduled service by checking the holiday box and setting a rate greater than $0.00. Creating a Holiday Rate simply allows Time To Pet to automatically select the rate for you. It can always be overridden on a case by case basis.
When a Client requests services through the portal, any service that falls on a holiday will automatically have the holiday rate applied.
