Our price for one hour is $100, but from the third hour the price becomes $80. How to configure it?

Let's say you already have a resource with a rule of work. For example, a rental for $100 / hour for each item. And only 10 places are available.
To change the price of the third and subsequent hours, you can use one of three solutions.

Discount for long-term booking

You can add a discount for reservations that last 3 hours or more. To do this, create a pricing component. Click on + to the right of the pricing components.
Set the following parameters:
1. Enter the name of the component.
2. Add the parameter name for the number of places. For example, PLACES.
3. Enter the formula. The discount of $20 is multiplied by the number of hours over two. And we multiply all this by the number of reserved places.
-20 * ([INTERVALS]-2) * [PLACES]
4. Open the constraints tab.
Add a limit of the number of periods — 3. In this case, when booking one or two periods, the discount will not be applied. Save it.
Now let's check the result. We will book two seats for 5 hours.
-20 * (5-2) * 2 = $120.

Extra charge for short-term bookings

You can go on the opposite way. Add a surcharge of $20 per hour for bookings shorter than three hours. To do this, first set the price of the hour — $80. Then create a pricing component.
Set the following parameters:
1. Enter the name of the component.
2. Add a parameter name for the number of places. For example, PLACES.
3. Enter the formula. The charge of $20 is multiplied by the number of hours. And all this is multiplied by the number of seats reserved.
20 * [INTERVALS] * [PLACES]
4. Open the constraints tab.
Add a limit on the number of periods — less than or equal to 2. Then the discount will only be applied for bookings of one or two periods. Save.
Check the results. We'll book 3 seats for 2 hours.
20 * 2 * 3 = $120.

Price by the pricing component

If you don't want to split the cost into parts, calculate it via the single pricing component. To do this, set the price of the price option — $0. Then create the pricing component.
Set the following parameters:
1. Enter the name of the component.
2. Add a parameter name for the number of places. For example, PLACES.
3. Enter the formula. The price of $100 is multiplied by the number of hours. Subtract the discount of $20 multiplied by the number of hours over two. And all this is multiplied by the number of reserved places.
(100 * [INTERVALS] - 20 * Max(0,[INTERVALS]-2)) * [PLACES]
In this formula, we used the Max function. It returns the maximum of two numbers. Thus, we do not allow the expression [INTERVALS]-2 to become less than zero.
4. Save the component.
Let's check the result. We will reserve two seats for 4 hours.
(100 * 4 - 20 * (4-2)) * 2 = $720.
