Why is there a difference between Airbnb or HomeAway/VRBO and my Beyond Pricing calendar?

Updated 5 days ago by Beyond Pricing

We connect to your Airbnb and/or HomeAway/VRBO account every day at midnight to push prices to your listings. We will never "revert" to old pricing as such, so if you see bookings come through that are for less than you expected, we want to help you find the cause to ensure you are getting booked at the best possible price.

Discounts on top

Many hosts have settings on Airbnb and/or HomeAway/VRBO that offer a discount for week or month long reservations. These will not be factored into our pricing but applied on top of our pricing. We recommend that you remove any discounts you have set up in Airbnb and/or HomeAway/VRBO.

For example: Beyond Pricing is pushing 7 days worth of prices that total $1,000 dollars for the week. You've set a weekly discount of 10% on Airbnb for that listing. The guest will then be able to book your place for $900 for the week.

Smart Pricing enabled

If you are using Airbnb's Smart Pricing or a different pricing tool you will need to ensure they are turned off. These programs will continue to influence your pricing after we have pushed our suggested prices.

Here's some information from Airbnb on how to manage Smart Pricing for your account: How do I turn Smart Pricing on or off?

Testing another tool

Have you been testing other pricing tools? You will need to ensure that these tools do not still have access to your Airbnb and/or HomeAway/VRBO account. Otherwise they will overwrite our suggested prices.

Recent changes to blocked dates/reservations

If you unblock dates or receive a cancellation, the newly available dates will not reflect our latest pricing until your account has been refreshed, either automatically at midnight or manually.

If you'd like a change made in Airbnb or HomeAway/VRBO to show up in Beyond Pricing immediately, simply refresh the corresponding account in your Accounts Tab like this:

refresh your account by toggling to your account tab and clicking the arrow next to the account you would like to refresh

Small $ difference (rounding)

Because of the way we round, at times there can be slight ($1 - $2) discrepancies in the pricing per night as viewed on Beyond Pricing versus Airbnb or another platform. Don't worry, this is only in the view, the full prices are still the same.
