How do I manually change pricing for certain dates?

Updated 8 months ago by Taylor McManus

All pricing, including manual overrides, should be done in Beyond Pricing. The Beyond Pricing Calendar gives you complete control to manually override prices (and cancel manual overrides) when necessary.

Manually override prices

It's easy to customize prices for specific days right on your Beyond Pricing Calendar. Simply click and drag over your Calendar to enter a new rate for certain dates.

Let's look at our pricing for our listing in Palm Springs during Coachella. This listing is walking distance to the site of the event -- a rare find. Normally, this factor would not affect our prices. However, during Coachella we know guests are willing to pay a premium to be so close. Let's increase our prices for that weekend using manual overrides:

Here's a step-by-step guide on how to customize them:

  1. Click and drag over the days you want to change pricing for. 
  2. Enter your desired price into the pop-up at the bottom of the screen.
  3. Click out of the box to save and sync the customized price.
  4. The day(s) will now appear in pink and your indicated price will show up on Airbnb or HomeAway/VRBO within 30 minutes.

Cancel manual overrides

It is easy to cancel manual overrides on your Beyond Pricing Calendar.

Going back to our Palm Springs example, let's say you found out the site of Coachella is actually farther away from your property than you thought. Let's cancel our manual override and let Beyond Pricing take care of the rest:

Here's how to cancel manual overrides, step by step:

  1. Select and drag over the dates of the manual override you want to cancel. 
  2. In the pop-up at the bottom of the screen click on the 'Cancel' button.
  3. Click out of the box to save the change and to go back to the predicted Beyond Pricing prices. These will now automatically update every day based on the latest supply and demand fluctuations.
Note that when you manually override a price, the suggested nightly price will remained fixed and will not fluctuate based on changes in demand we see in the market.
