Note: Suppose if the Happy Hours Pricing is set to $50 for the Weekdays Monday and Tuedays (13:00 to 17:00), and the Happy Hours Pricing is also configured for a Specific Date 26 June 2023, then even though the Days is Monday, the price configured for the Specific Date will get the priorty than the Weekdays.

Note: Appointments booked within the Happy Hours cannot be rescheduled.

What will happen if the Custom Service Duration addon is configured with Happy Hours Pricing?

If the Happy Hours Pricing and Custom Service Duration addons are configured together with a different price for the same service, then the price set for the Customs Service Duration will be considered for the bookings.

Suppose, if you have configured Custom Service Duration for the service with a unique price for each time duration, and along with that, you have also configured Happy Hours Pricing for Sunday and Monday for the time duration 13:00 to 17:00 for the same service as per below example:

Custom Service Duration Price (2 Hours): $50

Happy Hours Price (13:00 to 17:00): $30

So, if anyone opts to book the service for the Time 14:00 to 16:00 on Monday, then the price of the service will be $50, because, it will consider the price of the Custom Service Duration over the price of the Happy Hours.
