Room Categories

Before starting to create your physical rooms, you need to insert your room categories. Each physical room belongs to a specific room category.

Some examples of room categories: Double (Dbl), Triple (Trp), Suite (St), Family (Fam), etc..

During the creation of a physical room, you can choose the room category to which it belongs.

☞ Docs: Physical rooms

Physical rooms belonging to the same category will always have the same price, but also the same conditions of sale.  For example, you can sell each room that belongs to Dbl (double) category as "single-use" or "with an extra bed."

If you cannot sell a double (physical) room "with an extra bed", it could not be part of the Dbl category. In this case you would need to create a new category for that physical room.

In case you already use WuBook, you have to create the same room categories in Zak. A special tool allows you to import your room categories from Wubook to Zak.

Room categories are useful for:

  • price management
  • connection with WuBook.

Price management

    If you have many physical rooms that you want to sell at the same price, you can manage their pricing automatically by room category. Our price management tools, Sytar and Tabla, allows you to define the price for the various room categories and not for a single physical room.

    You have to indicate the maximum price while defining a category. It will be used as the default price if you haven't specified it otherwise.

    Updating data to WuBook

    Your products are sold on the portals (Wubook and Otas) by room categories. The room categories on ZaK can be connected to WuBook rooms to exchange data automatically.
