What are products on Nexudus Spaces?
On Nexudus Spaces, the products feature lets you create a list of services or items that space members or contacts can buy in advance. Products can be sold on the space website linked to your Nexudus Spaces account or via the dashboard.
Products can also be added to member's accounts as a one-off or recurrent purchase linked to their price plan. In this case, Nexudus Spaces will raise an invoice for the product every time the price plan is renewed.
Products can also include Time passes, Resource credit or Booking credit. In these cases, members or contacts will be charged the product price instead of the individual price that each item has. This means that you can sell 'Bundled' Products products in batches that have a given number of these items at a reduced price. For example, some spaces usually offer promos like "5 days' access to the space with 25% discount". All you have to do is add the product, assign the special price and include five day passes to the space.
In Nexudus Spaces, products can be bought as a single product or a bundle. A single product is an individual item or service with a price that the member or contact will be charged by an invoice. As mentioned above, bundles can include other items such as time passes, resource rates or booking credits and are renewed as regularly as you set. In this section, we are going to focus on adding a single product. For more information on this subject, go to the Products section on the Nexudus Spaces Knowledge Base.
Adding a single product on Nexudus Spaces
Go to the products section via Billing > Products and click on Add Product.
Fill in all of the required fields (i.e. those marked with an asterisk (*)). In this example, we're going to add the product "bicycle parking space", which lets a member park their bicycle in the coworking space. We can also add tags to products so that they can be viewed in groups. In this example, we have used the tag "mobility"; we have made it "visible" and set the price at "$20". Lastly, click on the Save button located in the top right corner.
- Check that the product has been added correctly to the list of products.
Including a product in a price plan
So, we've set up the product "bicycle parking space". And now what do we do? As we have mentioned previously, products can be sold to members via the space website or the dashboard. During your first steps using the platform, we are going to focus on assigning a product to a price plan. For more information and to find out all the possible options, go to the Products section on the Nexudus Spaces Knowledge Base.
We are going to assign the product that we just added to one of the price plans that is already on our account. When the price plan is renewed, the product will be included.
Remember that by adding a product to a price plan, that product's cost will be added to the amount given for that price plan.
Access the price plan list via Billing > Price Plans and click View this record's details next to the price plan that will include the product. In this example, it's "permanent desk price plan".
In the Products tab, click on Add Price Plan Product.
Choose the product parking in the pop-up window and click on Save.
- Lastly, check the product details to make sure it has been included correctly.
Great! You've added a product to a price plan! In later sections, we will see other Product settings.
