I am very interested in this extension. My interest is to use this as a prop/costume rental service where people and clubs can request clothing and equipment to be rented for usage in events. They should be able to see the quantity of items avaliable per model and what is the avaliability of each item in a calendar.

There are many rental stand alone rental scripts for vacations, hotels, cars, and other very specific items and can hardly be modified… but there is nothing about renting equipment or any generic article. You would be hitting the spot by releasing this extension.

Looking forward to buy it.

I look forward to this module.

We have multiple property rental websites where the property owner would require to administer the listings. The property owner may have between 1 and 10 properties. The property owners require permission based access for its staff whom just deal with bookings rather then other areas of the account.

Some properties are villas whereas others are apartments/condos. This requires a configuration tool at creation of each property to allow building or room booking with costs and discounts applied accordingly.

Offering payment options is also another challenge. Some property sites just offer a directory service with an annual figure for each property. Others offer directory service, while taking the booking fee and transferring this to the property owner. Others offer free listings but a commission based service quantified from bookings.

There is a great demand for these features within the property rental arena. Magento has given control back to the seller. If you can build a quality module offering these features, you’ll be giving control back to the rental market.

I have a HUGE amount of research on this topic so feel free to ask me any questions.

Please keep me posted on releases with new features. We have a video equipment rental company and this may be perfect for the website once you have the additions you plan on. Thanks!

hi, i just joined your group wink

as for the special task:
what i would need is the following… a customer rents e.g. 10 chairs, 20 plates and 1 dj-set for a party. after 1 week he returns it to me. during rental the items should be removed from stock quantity. after return there should be a possibility to re-stock the items (or e.g. only 9 chairs because 1 was broken) easily. for example in the backend there is a button “Restock items” in the order processing.

do you understand?

thx tom

ok. sounds good… but two more questions:
1) when i cancel the order i will get the status cancelled in the order processing and i obviously didn’t make money with that order. right?
2) the rental duration should be dynamic. normally it is 3 days, but if customer returns the items after 5 days they should be restocked manually.

thx tom

The booking time confirmation is planned for the next release.

This is going to be great. I’ve downloaded the demo and I can say is that there’s room for improvement but after I read the new features to come.I’m so excited to try it and see. Keep us updated.
Thanks

Yes, I keep to the old thread here - http://www.magentocommerce.com/boards/viewthread/14080/P30/
We have an early beta, I invited all our testers.

I am very interested in this extension. My interest is to use this as a prop/costume rental service where people and clubs can request clothing and equipment to be rented for usage in events. They should be able to see the quantity of items avaliable per model and what is the avaliability of each item in a calendar.

Hello,

I need a booking extension for products. 

This products should get individual discounts when renting longer than x days/weeks etc 
Also I need to define individual rental-rates… e.g. weekend-rate.

A short wishlist:
- ability to rent one or more of several items
- front-end calendar showing the availability
- drop-downs showing start and end dates
- time dependent price: example 1 day = €10 , 1 weekend = €15,- , 1 week = €20,-
- price shown on the product page updates when start/end dates change (Ajax, jQuery, etc)
- show total and available number of items
- admin can set “dead-time” after item returned (for cleaning, etc)
- admin can set min and max booking time as well as granularity, like min 1 day, max 14 days, possible values 1, 2 4,8,12 days
- discounts by coupons
- discounts by quantity
- discounts by gift certificates
- custom disclaimer for each service/product
- option for customer to sent the product (with UPS etc)
- if customer choose sending option the product cannot be avaible for two days before and two days after.

Let me know if you’re interested in building this extension (or maybe you already build such)

Best Regards,

I require the following Magento functionality:

Booking system for appointments.

Customer should be able to select booking date and time and the service required.

There should be 8 slots available per day.

One service may use 1 slot, another service may use 2 slots.

Once a slot is booked, it cannot be booked by another person, but if the booking is cancelled (by the admin user), then the booking time is available again.

Does anyone have this functionality? Please PM me - this is required urgently.

Thanks
