Quantity for bookable products
It should be possible to add quantity to bookable products.
We are booking stage equipment. Currently the user can't select how many of the same product he or she wants.
What if they want to book/rent four microphones and two monitors?
Currently our customers are not able to rent two or more of the same product.
I know I can add resources, but we have dynamic pricing on all of our products.

I'm setting up a shop which is going to rent out equipment and I cannot get it to work with Persons. E.g. for sleeping bags I have set up min persons to 1 and max to 6 since we have 6 sleeping bags in stock. Has also checked "Enable this to count each person as a booking until the max bookings per block (above) is reached." and then changed Availability - Max bookings per block to 6. Though with this set a customer can then book 4 bags for three days the 10th and then also add another 4 bags for just one day starting the 10th. That booking can be checked out and thus we have 8 bags booked the 10th!! How should this scenario be handled with Persons?
Why not use Person Types for microphones and monitors? You can label these fields whatever you want and assign different prices for them. The only thing is that they share a calendar, so not sure if that's an issue for you. Otherwise, there is no need for Quantity. In fact, I have asked WC to remove Quantity because I find it unnecessary and confusing!

I have the same need, as my client has a fleet of identical golf cars to rent. I was told by support to use the Persons function and that seems to be working, initially, as it will count down by bookings of "persons" and tell the shopper there are none left when they are all rented.

Being able to change the price of a bookable product based on quantity would also be helpful.

Adding resources doesn't work either, since it won't allow you to add more than one to your cart.
Seems this plugin really wasn't intended for rental products, but it is so close to be great for it.
Just need quantity and available inventory (which it seems like Resources would work fine for).
