Listing location settings in PriceLabs

Listing Location Settings in PriceLabs

Part of our rate adjustments are based on the hyper-local data we use to track demand for your listing's area, so it is very important to make sure the correct location is set for your listing. If the location for your listing is off by even a few hundred meters, this could skew the demand-based portion of our adjustments!
In most cases, your listing will automatically be assigned a location based on the address entered in your OTA or PMS, but different platforms can use different mapping systems and this can lead to differing locations.
You can check to see the exact location that was assigned to your listing on the Manage Listings page, clicking the location details will open a map so you can make sure your listing location is correct. 



What happens if your listing location is incorrect?

In most cases you will need to adjust the latitude and longitude in your PMS/platform and then re-connect the listing into PriceLabs; instructions for this will be in the help article for your PMS/platform here
  1. If you are syncing directly with Airbnb, then you must reach out to Airbnb support and request the location for your listing be changed and then re-import your listing into PriceLabs.
  2. If you are syncing to Mews, Yield Planet, Newbook, Staah, VRBO and MiniHotel -  you will be able to adjust your location directly on PriceLabs.
