"Invalid period/count. TOTAL (period * count) duration must be less than 1 month, and more than 1 day"

I dont get this statment that the rental thing gives me when i enter these times in...

- 10 rentals of
- - Period : 3 Days


4 Weeks

Now last time i checked, both those times are under one month and are sure as heck over 1 day. (Excluding February).... But why does it bring this up when i put those times in, and does this rule have to be set in place? Why does it have to be under a month?

Like theres no "Time <= Month"

It strictly has to be "Time < Month" ?

10 * 3 = 30 days of which you make it available

OR 4 weeks which would be 28 days

28 < 30 which makes it invalid.

make it 10 rentals of 3 days or 4 weeks and you are fine.

But, when i put those numbers in it brings up that error at the top.

Perhaps trying 9 rentals at 3 days for 4 weeks would be the better option. That would give an extra day but since rentals don't always go right away that extra day worth of time would allow for the rental to sit a little bit and possibly get all 9 rentals taken. IMO not having some extra time given between rentals is a waste since if it sits for an hour then you lose on a rental but are still paying for it in a sense.

logan is right, i was wrong in my thinking.

the maximum duration should be higher than the combined loaning time i think. :)
