Manage Rental of Products
With this module, you can rent products with Odoo. This module supports:
- regular rentals.
- rental extensions.
- sale of rented products.
Table of contents
In the menu Sales > Products > Product Variants, on the form view of a stockable product or consumable, in the Sales tab, there is a button Create Rental Service which starts a wizard to generate the corresponding rental service.
In the menu Inventory > Configuration > Warehouse Management > Warehouses, on the form view of the warehouse, in the Technical Information tab, you will see two additional stock locations: Rental In (stock of products to rent) and Rental Out (products currently rented). In the Warehouse Configuration tab, make sure that the option Rental Allowed is checked.
To use the module, you need to have access to the form view of sale order lines. For that, users must be part of the group Manage Product Packaging. To add all your users to that group, go to the menu Inventory > Configuration > Settings: in the Products section, enable the option Product Packagings and click on Save (this is done for you upon module installation).
In a sale order line (form view, not tree view), if you select a rental service, you can :
- create a new rental with a start date and an end date: when the sale order is confirmed, it will generate a delivery order and an incoming shipment.
- extend an existing rental: the incoming shipment will be postponed to the end date of the extension.
In a sale order line, if you select a product that has a corresponding rental service, you can decide to sell the rented product that the customer already has. If the sale order is confirmed, the incoming shipment will be cancelled and a new delivery order will be created with a stock move from Rental Out to Customers.
This module has the following limitations:
- No support for planning/agenda of the rented products (i.e. you can't rely on this module to check your capacity to rent a product for the selected dates when you create a quote)
- The unit of measure of the rental services must be Day (the rental per hour / per week / per month is not supported for the moment)
