Check out our Getting Started Guide
or one of the Live Training Sessions
to get a good overview of the available customizations. Once you're satisfied with your pricing recommendations, you can turn sync on for your listings. Once that's done, you can wait for our regular nightly sync to push prices, or you can do a manual sync using the Sync Now! button.
Setting weekly and monthly discounts for Lodgify listings
If you are using the Lodgify <> Airbnb XML connection:
Discounts set in PriceLabs will carry over from Lodgify to most channels automatically, however in order to have the discounts set in PriceLabs apply to Airbnb listings, discounts must be set in Lodgify as well. They can either be applied from the connectivity agents when setting up your Lodgify account or from the channels page in your Lodgify dashboard.
To set the discounts from your Lodgify dashboard go to your list of properties, choose the property for which you would like to change the weekly and monthly discount and select "Channels" from the menu on the left-hand side. You can then click the three dots to edit the settings for each channel and set or adjust the discounts there. Please note that for Airbnb Pro, when you save changes Lodgify will send them immediately to Airbnb. However, there may be a delay of up to a few hours before Airbnb displays them.
If you have transitioned to the REST API Lodgify <> Airbnb connection:
Weekly and monthly discounts set in PriceLabs will carry over to all channels automatically!
Weekly discounts apply to bookings 7 to 27 nights long, while monthly discounts are applied to bookings 28 nights or longer
Resolving rate and currency errors for Lodgify listings
If you are seeing errors saying PriceLabs is unable to fetch rates, or that there is no currency set for your listing when there had been a currency set in the past, you can resolve these errors by doing the following:
- Disable external rates inside your Lodgify account
- Go to the Lodgify rates page for the property with the error re-enter the base rate and click save
- Enable external rates again
- Return to PriceLabs and Save & Refresh your listing and then click the Sync Now! button.
If you are seeing this error for multiple listings it's best to do an account sync from the Customizations page
