What can I do in the Customizations Tab?
The Customize Tab for your listing allows you adjust certain settings for your listing, including Minimum and Maximum Prices, Extra Guest Fees, Minimum Stays, Last Minute Discounts, or Check-in/Check-out and Changeover days.
The options you see on this tab will vary from user to user depending on whether they have a direct connection to Airbnb and/or HomeAway, or are connected via a PMS. Read on to find which settings are compatible with your connections.
Minimum and Maximum Prices
Your Minimum Price is the lowest rate you'd be willing to accept for a night. This is completely up to you but we recommend setting it as low as you feel comfortable. Just remember that a high Minimum Price will likely result in fewer bookings in periods of low demand and limit last minute bookings.
You can also adjust your Minimum Price by season.
In general, Beyond Pricing does not recommend setting Maximum Prices because you can often get booked at much higher rates than you would expect in periods of high demand. However, if enabled, we will not suggest rates above that price unless you manually override a day with your own prices.
Extra Guest Fees
For some connections, including a direct connection with HomeAway/VRBO you set Extra Guest Fees directly in Beyond Pricing.
Minimum Stays allow you to set restrictions around the lowest for number of nights you are willing to accept for a reservation. You can set both Annual Minimum Stays that apply year round, as well as Seasonal Minimum Stays for time periods where you would like to set different requirements.
Last Minute Discounts
Beyond Pricing allows you to set percentage last minute discounts in order to increase the likelihood that you receive a booking in the immediate short term. Last minute discounts will pull the nightly price down, but never below your Minimum Price.
By default, Beyond Pricing inputs a discount of 25% for reservations booked within the last three days to stay and 10% for the last seven days to stay. Additionally, we increase rates by 10% and 30% after 270 and 390 days, respectively.
Checkin and Checkout Days
You can set both Annual and Seasonal checkin and checkout day requirements for listings connected through some PMSs.
