Understanding the Interface

There are three (3) panels in SabahTravel Vendor Dashboard view:  

  • Left Panel: Product Packages & its Customer Categories 
  • Middle Panel: Pricing & Allotments in Calendar View
  • Right Panel: Editing Panel (Price, Allotment & Price Tier)

What is Product Packages?

Product packages serve different type of services/products/categories of your product. You can have different Product Packages in one single package for customer to choose. 

All the product packages will be shown as “Package Options” on the website.  

See example below.

What is Product Categories?

Customer Categories is the different type of individual with a different age range that is purchasing your product in SabahTravel platform. You may have different customer categories for different Product Packages based on your company practice or the nature of the product itself.

All the Customer Categories will be shown in the “Quantity” on the website. 

Both Product Packages & Customer Categories setting are the default by SabahTravel.

Contact your SabahTravel Account Manager if you have more inputs. But we advise you to simplify and standardise the Product Package & Customer Categories for more productive allotment management.

Understand the Terminology

There are only three (03) steps for both setting product selling price and product allotments.

Before we get started, let's understand some terminology we will use throughout this tutorial.

Default Pricing [Function is Not Available]

Default pricing is a fixed price value for a product's selling price.

During setting the product default pricing in SabahTravel Vendor Dashboard, this value will apply to all dates, until you have custom change on any dates' pricing.

SabahTravel vendors have to key in a default pricing at first place before selecting any other dates for custom pricing.

By setting the product pricing (default pricing/custom pricing), the customer will be paying the amount shown in the SabahTravel Product Package Page.

Custom Pricing

Custom pricing is a specific price value for a product's selling price on a particular date/date range.

By setting a Custom Pricing, the price will be overriding the Default Price.

Why Custom Pricing?

By using this feature, you can set custom pricing on specific dates to match your company marketing direction for any promotional or discounted price. You are free to custom change the prices of any dates/date range.

Default Allotments [Function is Not Available]

Default allotments is a fixed allocated slot for a product's availability.

During set product allotments in SabahTravel Vendor Dashboard, this value will apply and reflect all dates, until you have custom change on any dates' allotments.

By putting slots into the product, it opens the date availability for the customer to book to their desire travel date.

Custom Allotments

Custom allotments/slots is a specific allocated slot for a product's availability on a specific date/date range.

Setting a customised slot will be overriding the Default allocated slots.

Why Custom Allotments?

There are a few reasons you might need to custom your product's slot.

  • Stop-sell your product on specific dates
  • Blackout dates
  • Additional / reduction of the slot availability of specific dates

You are encouraged to keep an eye on the slots and make sure the slots number is the most updated in the vendor dashboard so that the customers can book on your product.

What if I wanted to stop selling my product on particular dates?

If you want to stop-sell your products on specific dates, we encourage you to set the allotments to zero. Follow the tutorial below "Setting Product Allotments".

BEWARE. You are not encouraged to adjust the pricing to "0" on the particular date that you wish to close this date. This action will directly reflecting to the product selling price becoming MYR0. If you are not closing (set slots to zero) the selling date, the customer is able to purchase your product with MYR0.
