Different prices on your PriceLabs calendar explained

Different Prices on Your Calendar - Tooltip Explained



Whenever you hover over any date on your calendar (single listing or multi-calendar), you will see a tooltip. This tooltip will help you understand how every rate in your calendar is calculated along with the customizations applying to that date!

Here’s what the different prices/terms on the tooltip mean:

Base Price: 
The tooltip now shows you which Base Price is currently applied to your listing. Whether it is from the default or seasonal base price.

Market Factors:
  1. Seasonality: We set seasonality for your region based on historical trends in both vacation rentals and hotels.
  2. Demand Factor: The algorithm picks up the demand for the listing by incorporating day of week trends, events and holidays into the demand forecasting process. The algorithm also picks up the booking trends in the market to forecast a high/low demand.
  3. Pacing Factor: The pacing adjustment has been put in place for some markets where the projected demand is deviating significantly from historical seasonal trends. This deviation is calculated by considering how much ahead or behind your market occupancy is this year compared to previous years.
Uncustomized Price: This is the rate that the algorithm calculates based on only the neighborhood demand factors. This price is free from any of the discounts and customizations you add.

Price Customizations:
This section has details about all of the pricing customizations set on the listing/group/account level that are getting applied. Along with the customization, you can also see the level from which the customization is getting applied, whether it is our default customization or one you have set.

In the screenshot above, for example, you can see that a -10% is being applied for the "Listing Occ Pricing Factor" is one of our default adjustments (more on that here
  1. Customized Price: This is the rate after the Pricing Customizations are applied to the Uncustomized Price
Thresholds:
  1. Min and Max Price: Indicates how the minimum and maximum price is set (whether through the default prices or seasonal prices) and if there's none, it automatically sets a safety price (minimum safety price is 30% of the base price while the maximum safety price is 10 times the base price)
Final Price:
This is the price that you see in the calendar box, which the system will broadcast the next time it pushes prices; this is your Recommended Price.

Other Customizations:
Any customizations in place that don't adjust your pricing, like the 2-night minimum stay shown above or a day where check-in is blocked, will appear in this section. 

Last Seen Price:
This is the price that the system saw on for this listing on your PMS, channel, or channel manager when it last pushed prices. If you have been using PriceLabs for a bit, this is usually yesterday's price. 

Price with default discounts:
This is what your price would be if the system didn't add any of your customization settings, including your set minimum and maximum prices. This price will only consider discounts and premiums we apply by default from our algorithm.
