There are a few ways to install our Rental Module. First of all please check your current Prestashop version before continuing with installation (to check your current version login to your Prestashop administration panel and look at the bottom left of the page or top left for never versions).

2.1. First method

Login to your Prestashop administration area and then go to modules page. On the top right corner click “Add new module“ and select the .zip file that you have downloaded, then click “Upload“. Now find “Reviver Rental Module“ in the modules list and click “Install“ button, if you get a confirmation dialog click “Proceed with the installation“.

2.2. Second method

Extract module‘s .zip file and upload to your Prestashop “modules” folder on your FTP server. Login to your Prestashop administration area and then go to modules. Now find “Reviver Rental Module“ in the modules list and click “Install“ button, if you get a confirmation dialog click “Proceed with the installation“.

2.3. Regenerating thumbnails

If you intend to use products that were added to your shop before you installed the Rental Module you need to regenerate product thumbnails, otherwise (if you will add new products) you can skip this step. Go to “Preferences” > “Images” scroll down to bottom of the page. Here you can change the dimensions of “reviver_rental” image type to fit your needs. Then select “Products” in “Select an image” field and select “reviver_rental” in “Select a format”. Now click “Regenerate thumbnails” button. Process duration depends on product count. If server time outs during the regeneration process, repeat all steps except set “Erase previous images” to “No”.

After successful module installation, go to modules list and find “Reviver Rental Module“ in the modules list and click “Configure“ button.

3.1. Configuration page

Here is an example of possible module usage. Keep in mind that first section “Currently assigned products to the rent list” only shows a list of assigned products with their order positions. To assign template to a product see “Assign template to products” section (page 8). At the bottom of the page you can change ordering settings, administrator e-mail address (separate by comma if you need to use multiple e-mails) and CMS page where rental products will appear. When client places an order, custom e-mail will be sent to the e-mail/e-mails you’ve set in module settings, this email will contain all rental information (any field that you add to rental page will be included in this e-mail e.g. dates, names, sizes etc.). Use “Compatibility for columns” setting if your theme has right and left columns, this setting will alter module template and make buttons bigger. Depending on your shop configuration you may need to add taxes to prices used in the module, this feature is disabled by default.

3.2. Creating rental template fields

Note:

In order for rental prices and durations to work properly you must at least create 2 date fields. The first one will automatically be “from date” and second will be “to date”

Click “Create new template field”, select input type, enter field name (we recommend using only Latin letters and numbers, no spaces), title (will be visible to users), placeholder (never browsers can show preentered text in input fields) and default value. Some input fields like “select”, have additional settings after you save them.

3.3. Creating additional products / services

Click “Create new template field”, enter name (we recommend using only Latin letters and numbers, no spaces), title (will be visible to users), description (will be displayed to users next to the field), price fields (if you want product to show discounted price, enter both fields, otherwise fill only “Price” field). Use dot for prices and not the comma (4.20 is good, but 4,20 is not). You can upload image after product / service is saved.

3.4. Creating rental templates

Note:

Before creating templates, make sure you already created your fields and additional products / services you want to create (you may add them later too, but you have to open template editing page again). See “Creating rental fields” (page 5) and “Creating additional products / services”

Click “Create new rental template”, enter the template’s name (it will only be shown to administrators), for example “Skies ECO” and click “Save”, you will be redirected to template editing page.

Then you can assign already created fields and enter their position. Same mechanic works for additional products / services.

“Order days coefficients” – here you can create grids based pricing of rental periods. In the date fields you must enter rental day count (not actual date). You can’t use same day for ending and the beginning of another range (for example 1-2 and 3-4 is good, but 1-2 and 2-3 is not) Use dots for decimals when entering price coefficient. See picture above.

After you have finished setting up your template, hit ”Save” on the top of the page (near template’s name field). Your template now will be shown as a selection on product editing page inside “Reviver Rental Module” tab.

3.5. Assigning template to products

After you finished setting up templates you can now assign them to your products. Go to “Catalog” > “Products”, then click on “Reviver Rental Module” tab. Now select your template and click “Save” or “Save and stay”. If you want to edit or create new templates, go back to module configuration window. After saving, your product will be listed in rental products list page. To set your rental products list page you must first create CMS page (“Preferences” > “CMS”) and then set this page in module configuration, read more about it in “Configuration page” section
