Why are my Health Scores and booking percentages different between my Airbnb and HomeAway/VRBO listings?
When you have a large amount of blocked dates at the start of your calendars, the Health Score for your HomeAway/VRBO listing can be different than it is for the same listing on Airbnb, even if you have successfully linked your calendars. This is because blocked dates and booked dates are interpreted differently across Airbnb and HomeAway/VRBO with an iCal link if there are a large number of dates blocked or booked in the upcoming month.
Since the Health Score is an influenced by your booking percentage, the Health Scores might not be the same at first. Don't worry! After around a month of using Beyond Pricing, your Health Scores should calibrate to be the same.
Can I add % markups by channel?
You can add a percentage markup to rates for certain channels through applying that change to your Base Price.
If you have a listing with a Base Price in Beyond Pricing of $100 on both Airbnb and HomeAway/VRBO, and would like to see a 10% markup on HomeAway/VRBO, simply adjust your Base Price in Beyond Pricing for your HomeAway/VRBO listing to $110.
