I have been reading through the forum looking to see if there's a solution for what I need before I purchase, bookly will be used to manage a food truck, but we need for people to be able to book the truck for events and either add a "delivery" charge or include it in the price based on the location the client inputs in when filling out the booking form, and additionally, we would need to somehow set some sort of rule so that if there are 2 bookings in one day, if the locations are too far apart, the system wouldn't allow the second booking to be made.

Just wondering if I could make something like this work with bookly. Thanks

    Hi Marianna, 

    Thanks for reaching out. 

    Bookly is an ultimate online appointment scheduling and service booking solution for almost any business which sells services. 

    Yes, you should be able to use Bookly to book the truck for events. 

    Depending on your need, you can either include the delivery charge in the price base or add it on top of the service price with the use of the Extras Add-on: https://support.booking-wp-plugin.com/hc/en-us/articles/207647799-Extra-Products-Treatments-Service-Extras-add-on-. Then you can ask the customer to enter the delivery address in the Notes field in the booking form. 

    As regards to the rule of not having more than 2 bookings in one day, please note that the system takes into account the staff members schedule when rendering available time slots in the front-end. So this depends on the staff member (food truck) schedule entirely. 

    Perhaps you should consider those areas that you offer your services and take into consideration the distance when setting up a staff (truck) schedule. Alternatively, you can make use of the Padding time to give space/time for traveling to and from one delivery location to another. 

    Have a look at the Locations Add-on: https://support.booking-wp-plugin.com/hc/en-us/articles/210229885-Locations-Add-on as well and check if it meets your requirements. 

    Please check our demos and sandbox: https://www.booking-wp-plugin.com/demo-list/ to discern if Bookly fits your business needs.
