One member noticed that the Guest Options in Bookerville that are specified to be percent-based are based on a percentage of the net rent, not the total for the whole booking.

This can create problems, especially if you're trying to use Guest Options for something like a credit-card processing fee.

We could make it based on the booking total, or at least make it optionally based on the total, but this can create a problem. What if you create two or more Guest Options that are based on a percent of the whole total? Since the whole booking total includes all Guest Options, we have to add in all the Guest Options before we can calculate the percent of the total for these kinds of Guest Options.

Should we calculate percent-based Guest Options based on the booking total less all percent-based Guest Options? Or at least, less all the percent-based Guest Options that are based on the booking total?

I know that's a mouthful, so if you have questions or need clarification, please ask.

Please weigh-in with your thoughts - how should this be handled?
