How to Change Pricing on Events

This article summarizes the many ways to change pricing on an event. That includes changing the pricing plan for the event and editing the pricing for one or more room or resource charges manually.

Setting the Pricing Plan When Creating an Event

When you create a new event in Mazévo as an event planner,  you can override the system's default pricing plan for the event (see below). Mazévo then uses this plan to determine the pricing for each room and resource on the event.

To change the pricing plan for an existing event:

1. Open the event and click Change Event

2. Select the new pricing plan for the event and click Save. (Note: This will not change any of the prices already set on the event. Only bookings and resources added after this change will have the new pricing.)

2. Click Reset Price in the popup menu and click Yes to confirm the change.

To create a resource "credit" entry:

If you need to show a credit (i.e., a negative amount) on a confirmation or invoice, you simply change the quantity of the resource to a negative value. For example, you might want to credit the amount charged to the customer if they're unhappy with a rented data projector.

1. Open the event, click the Resources tab, and find the resource in question.

2. Check the box next to the item and click Change Quantity in the Change Resources menu.

3. Type -1 and click Save.

The price of the item is updated, as are associated taxes and services charges. With regard to resource inventory, negative quantities are ignored when calculating resource usage.
