What Is A Package?
A Package is essentially the individual product that you are selling and allows you to set the cost of your services. You can apply each Package to individual bookable unit types, and include a list Extras if you desire.
Offering different packages to your customers for the same service can help customers feel like they've got more choice over their booking. For example, if you offer Bronze (basic service), Silver (basic service plus some extras) and Gold (everything included) priced packages, the customer would usually opt for the middle price point package. This allows you to up sell your Extras products from the start.
