Modified on Thu, 12 Oct 2023 at 04:35 AM

Follow the steps below to add or update Scan To Pay or On Demand transient pricings.

 

  • Log in to the ParkWhiz Seller Console

  • Identify and click the location in ParkWhiz Seller Console where you want to add/update the On Demand transient pricing.




  • Go to Pricings

  • Click On Demand

  • Click Transient

  • Under Transient, click + add new pricings



Checklist of Settings

Critical Fields that affect time parameters

  • Required



Pricing Name

Any text is allowed. The most common conventions for pricing names are:

  • Name it according to the pricing’s use (example: Hourly Rates, Evening rate, etc)

  • Use a pricing name that describes the Days/Times the rates are available (Weekday Evening, etc)


Valid Times

This is the time parameters or validity of the rate.

  • The system reads 12:00am as 00:00 or the first minute of the Day

  • What the +Days setting does is add 1 calendar date change to the start time

The way to read this is, from Sun 00:00 to Mon 00:00 (Sunday start of day to Monday start of Day)

Since the calendar date changes at midnight, setting “Days” to zero results in an error 

Here is another example:

Monday, from 5am to 5pm that same day


Pricing

  • Hours — The maximum number of hours that customers can park for the rate they booked.

  • — This is the ParkWhiz Seller Console price for the number of parking hours booked

On-site security guard

This informs the customer that the location has retained the services of at least one person to guard the location and customer property.
Attendant on-site

This amenity has two selections in the drop-down right next to it. The "at all times" selection means that at least one attendant should be present at the location for the duration of the customer's stay. The "for arrival" selection results in an attendant staying only for the customer's arrival at the location and that no attendant is likely to be present for the customer's departure.
Restrooms available to customers

This amenity indicates that the parking location offers restrooms.
Tailgating is allowed

This option tells the customer that they can cook and consume food and drink at the parking location.
Handicap accessible

This selection means that a given location can handle customers with wheelchairs, powerchairs or other motorized conveyances without causing inconvenience to them.
Electric vehicle charging available

This indicates that there is an EV charger at the location.

The icon does not promise that the charging is "included" with any given purchase or rate, so it can be enabled even when there is a fee for EV charging.

If there is a fee for EV charging, it must either be stated in the location description or disclaimer or set up as an Optional Add-on.


Customers allowed to leave and re-enter with same pass

This amenity allows customers to park, depart and re-enter as many times as needed for as long as their pass is valid. Unless this is enabled, customers cannot come and go as they please -- one pass for one entry and exit. This is not enabled often for many locations. Please note that some customers unfamiliar with city parking may misunderstand and think this is the norm.

NOTE: If in/out is allowed on a transient pricing, include this in the pricing name: in/out allowed


Accepts smartphone mobile parking passes

Do not tick if the location requires printed passes for validation
Free shuttle service offered to

This is a specialized amenity for only locations that offer shuttle service to and from the venue to the parking location, typically if they are located outside the normal one mile max range of walking distance. In order to enable this amenity, a venue must be selected. The system will display all venues in range by proximity.
This is parking for Recreational Vehicles (RVs)

This amenity designates that the pricing is for oversized vehicles, particularly RVs.
