Is there a way to use price books without opportunities? I'm working on a small project for a local hotel and the hotel charges different rates for rooms based on day of week and/or weekend, occupancy, etc. If a customer comes into the hotel to book a room, I want the hotel agent to be able to make the reservation without creating an opportunity first. It seems that price books only work with opportunities. Is that right? I'm trying to avoid the extra step of creating an opportunity because if a customer comes in and just pays for their room the concept of an opportunity doesn't really apply. It is one thing if they make a reservation, but don't pay then to me the concept of an opportunity makes sense, but if the customer calls in or comes in, and pays all in one shot I don't see the need for creating the opportunity. I'd like to avoid the extra step, but still leverage price books if possible because that seems like the only way to offer tiered/varied pricing unless I'm wrong?
Does anyone know can I use price books without opportunities or maybe there is another way to to do this better? The goal is to allow the hotel to have different pricing levels of the room and ultimately make a reservation for the customer when they come in and pay.
