Create products with attributes and services

Thanks to MegaServices we can configure a product so you have different services. We can do this by using attributes.

Then we will detail a series of steps we must take to make our product this function.

The most important thing we should do is to check that we still have our MegaServices module updated to the latest version published by developers.

Module reservations updated the latest version

Once assured that we use the latest version, we will create our product in prestashop, to configure all the options in MegaServices.

We will create our product from:

Catalog > Products > add new product.

Another thing that is very important and can bring us headaches when we begin to use MegaService, is in the section of QuantitiesIn this section, we will have to configure it correctly so that the client can add products to the cart.

We will have to put in the configuration of quantities that our product will allow orders when there is no stock, since the number of services per days/hours etc. will inform it later from the module.

Allow orders always in module reservations

Once configured the product in prestashop, we will proceed to configure the product in MegaServices.

To access the module MegaServices can do in two ways:

Well going directly from Catalogue > MegaServices, or entering in the tab modules and looking for our reservations module.

Within MegaServices proceed to add the product you've already created previously in PrestaShop and proceed to the configuration of all the options available within our module: 

General options configuration window in booking module

So the client can see the number of services available both per day and per hour, it is necessary to show a calendar of availability in the front office. To do this, in the part of design We will have to indicate that we want to show the availability button and the availability:

Show available services in the front office with the reservation module


So will display the availability button customers on the product page:

Button to show availability on the front with reservation module

And when customer click on it, you will see a calendar with all the services available and occupied for the day that you want to make your reservation:


Availability calendar in front office booking form


Something that debesde never forget when you set MegaServices is to put the price by AJAX If you want the cost of the service is updated automatically when the client go by modifying all the options available in the product, how to change the day, time, add extra options, increase the number of people...

Now we have add the attributes to the products. These attributes must have been created previously in prestashop.

The attributes are added from groups and, in general, with the following configuration:

Configure the attributes of your services in the reservation module


To assign a certain number of services to our attributes will do it from the section of attributes. In our case we will show that each car type, attribute, will take 3 services available at every hour.

Indicates the number of services available for each attribute in the reservation module

Once these steps the calendar of availability of our product will appear with availability for 3 attributes, i.e., for three types of car:

Shows the number of services available for each attribute in booking module

 


Thus the client always will know what services are available and you can choose the options that best suit your needs. You can see the demo of this product here.
