Step 4 - The "COSTS" TaB

Base Cost –  ie $5 (enter an amount here if you wish to only charge one amount for the total booking)

Block Cost – ie $7 (this is the cost per block (per 7 day block), that you have set up in the General tab

Display Cost –  ie $2 – this is the amount that is shown in the Borrow area on display

Add Range – you can change the amounts here for each week, ie if someone borrows your item for one month it might cost $10 for first month, and $5 for consecutive months

Step 5 - The "BOND" TaB

Enable Bond – this should be on by default, as it protects you and your item

Multiply bond by quantity – select if you have multiple items of the same type

Chose a Bond Amount – we recommend approx 25% of new price

Select “Fixed value” or “Percentage of Price

There is no need to save on every tab, but recommend it as good practice, so you don’t have to redo in case of internet outage etc
