DIN value is an important issue when renting out skis. In Rentle you can mark DIN value for your products, and even make the calculation automatic to make renting out even faster.
This is how you do it:
1. Go to "Products" and from there "General Product Settings".
2. Switch on the "Mark DIN values for ski products".
3. From here you are able to either choose to use "Manual input" or "Automatic calculation".
With manual input you always have to mark and calculate the DIN value yourself. This is useful, if you wish to use some other formula than provided by Rentle.
With automatic calculation you need only to worry about filling the products you are giving out for each customer. The DIN value is then calculated automatically according to user information and the used DIN formula.
4. Choose the products from which you wish to collect DIN value from from "What are your ski products to collect DIN from?". Usually these are your alpine ski products, where you set the DIN always when you rent them out.
Note: If you wish to have DIN calculated also for products like skiing boots, choose them also here. This way, if a client rents only boots, they will still be asked all the needed information for the DIN calculation.
5. Choose the boots to be used with products at "What are your ski bot products to be used for calculating DIN?". As in many formulas the DIN value is dependent on the sole length of the boot, Rentle needs to be able to fetch this information from your inventory to calculate the DIN.
Alright, now you are all ready to go! ✌️
How will this affect the consumer experience?
Currently we offer only Atomic's DIN formula. For this to be calculated the formula uses the following information:
Sole length of the boot
Also we ask for the following, to help you pick the right boot for the customer:
This information will now automatically be asked from your customers, who are renting products that you've defined to use DIN value. This is done in every sales channel (admin dashboard, rental links, online shop and in-store self-service).
Rentle needs the sole length for the boots to calculate the DIN. Make sure that you've filled this information in your inventory to all of your ski boot products.
