Setting different prices per quantity

The default behavior in the plugin is to multiply the quantity by the unit price of the service to get the total price. In some cases a non-linear relation of the prices and quantity is needed, for example to set a lower price after some quantity number. This article explains how to setup different prices linked to the quantity selected in the calendar.

You should be familiar first with allowing bookings for multiple quantity, we will need to modify the default price structure:
