Give users their own dedicated taxi rates…

Along side the standard price looked up from the price table, Cab Grid Pro offers several ways to manipulate prices (e.g. Price Variations, and Discounts & Surcharges). Cab Grid Pro Version 5 introduces a new feature that allows a dedicated price calculation formula to be applied for individual WordPress users, that is, users logged in to the WordPress site.

Adding WordPress Users

Users can be registered with a WordPress website by the administrator under WordPress Admin > Users > Add New, or customers can be provided with a registration form on the site where they can register themselves. See this tutorial on providing a custom WordPress user registration form:

How to set a dedicated Cab Grid price discount for a specific user

When a user is logged in, if there is a discount formula set for their account, it will be applied automatically when they calculate a taxi fare price.

  • Assuming the user exists, access their profile via WordPress Admin > Users > All Users > [username] > Edit (on mouse-over). See screenshot above.
  • Scroll down to the section labelled, “Cab Grid Profile Information
  • In the text field labelled, “Discount Formula” enter the formula that will be applied to each price – only for this user. For example, the formula for a 10% discount would be: *0.9
  • Click the UPDATE USER button at the bottom.

Hide or show additional price variation options for logged-in users

When a taxi fare price is calculated, the price can be further manipulated by price variations or global discount/promotional codes. It is possible to disable these, though this is an advanced setting…

In the _settings.php file (or defaults add-on plugin) the following code will determine if price variation buttons and discount code input boxes appear to logged in users:

$cabGridUserShowVariants="y"; //y/n: If "n" price variants will be hidden FOR LOGGED IN USERS
$cabGridUserShowDiscountInput="n"; //y/n: If "y" the discount code input field will be visible FOR LOGGED IN USERS
