The daily rate, or price/cost of extra days, is calculated using a Price Rule Set based on the count of calendar days. The two default rules are "Homeowner Pricing" and "Contractor Pricing". Click on either of these rule sets to see more information and make edits:
Additional Info: The price rules are attached to items via a Schedule Profile under Admin > Products > Schedule Profiles.

Changing Extra Day Pricing
The pricing calculation for additional days is located under Admin > Rules > Price Rule Sets. Change the existing rule sets for "Homeowner" and "Contractor" to complete the updates. You can also build and attach additional Price Rule Sets to Item using Schedule Profiles.
By default, "Homeowner" and "Contractor" have two rules. The first rule designates the free period and the second rule designates the daily rate and pricing breakdown.
First Price Rule:
- Note the "Mod Value" for affecting the cost.
- "Condition 1" specifies that a rental should fall within this window for this rule to apply.
- The "Value 1" shows the actual days to cover.
Second Price Rule:
- Note the "Mod Value" to set the daily rate.
- "Condition 1" specifies "Daily rentals of a duration range", which applies every day for any days that fall within the inputted range.
- Here "Value 1" will begin billing on the 9th day and each day after, up until 365 days.
- The "Subtotal Description" and "Amount Description" appear in the Shopping Cart to give a price breakdown.
A Note on Calendar Days
The pricing example above covers "Up to 7 Days" while the free period lasts until the 8th day, and billing begins on the 9th day. The software calculates the delivery date as the 1st day or "Day 1". To prevent confusion where your customers think they're begin unjustly charged, we recommend building in a free day.
Here's an example assuming a rental begins on Tuesday, May 7th, 2019. They delivery is on Tuesday, which counts as the first day for billing. By allowing 8 days for free, billing for additional days does not begin until the following Wednesday:
