How to connect PriceLabs to Stays.net

How to Integrate PriceLabs with Stays.net

Connecting PriceLabs to Stays.net

While actively syncing to a Stays.net account using the advanced pricing model, PriceLabs can send daily rates, minimum stay requirements, length of stay pricing, and check-in and check-out restrictions to Stays.net listings for dates up to 540 days from today (for more on extending your pricing calendar see our article here). For customers using the Stay.net basic pricing model, PriceLabs can only update daily rates for your listings. For more details on how to configure stay requirements for your Stay.net pricing model, please scroll down to the appropriate section below. 
Minimum stay requirements and check-in/-out settings must be set in PriceLabs, or sync will fail. Please read our article on setting min-stays in PriceLabs for more information.
Also, in order for the dates to show available on PriceLabs calendar, and for prices and rate plans to update on Stays, it's necessary to first set up a base rate on Stays Calendar.

Connecting to Stays.net

Step 1: First, log in to your Stays.net account and go to the App Center from the main menu. Select PriceLabs in the App Center, then click to activate the connection. Expand the App Config section to view your Authorization credentials and click to save


Step 2: Then find your Stays.net ID by clicking your name on your Stays.net dashboard, as shown here.


Step 3: Once your Stays.net credentials have been found, head over to your PriceLabs dashboard and click the "+ Add/Reconnect Listings" button; from the "PMS / Channel Manager". Select 'Stays' from the dropdown, and enter in the credentials from the Stays.net App Center along with your Stays.net ID. Once you've done that, click "Connect" to import your listings into PriceLabs! 


Step 4: The minimum stay configuration in Stays must have all the types of minimum stay that are configured in PriceLabs , for example if some properties have minimum stay of 2 nights and on certain special dates, 3 nights, these must be reflected in your Stays configuration as shown in the screenshot below for example:

Please configure the same number of nights in General Settings => Pricing => Pricing Per Night => Common Rate Plans 

You can now start reviewing prices for your Stays.net listings! Be sure to go through our Getting Started guide or join a PriceLabs 101 webinar to get a good overview of some PriceLabs basics, and remember you will need to set a default minimum stay requirement.
 

When your stay restrictions have been set, you can toggle on the sync switch and either wait for our regular nightly sync or push the Sync Now! button to update your listing immediately. 

Once a successful sync has happened, you can head to your Stays.net multi-calendar and expand the listing to view your PriceLabs rates, with additional bands added for different stay requirements and your check-in and check-out restrictions sent from PriceLabs.


Setting Stay Requirements for Stays.net Advanced Pricing Model

When configuring the minimum night requirements for your Stays.net listings, the "Minimum stay update" switch in PriceLabs must be on for sync to be successful. Your minimum stay set in PriceLabs will work with the Length of Stay pricing model set in Stays.net or PriceLabs. Any discounts set with your PriceLabs or Stays.net LOS pricing model will be used for stays up to 14 nights. For this listing with a pricing model starting at 4 nights in Stays.net, 

 We can allow shorter and more extended stays with the dynamic min-stays and LOS sent from PriceLabs. 



Setting Stay Requirements for Stays.net Basic Pricing Model

We highly recommend moving to the Advanced Pricing Model in Stays.net when using PriceLabs as min-stay settings do not work between PriceLabs and Stays.net for listings on the Basic Pricing Model. If staying with the Basic Pricing Model, the minimum night update switch in PriceLabs must be on for sync to be successful, but the stay requirement will be based on the existing rate plan set for your listing in Stays.net. 
For example, if the min-stay in PriceLabs was set to a flat 1-night stay.

Or a flat 3-night stay

The minimum LOS for this listing will be 2 nights regardless since that is what has been set with the Stays.net rate plans. 

And the PriceLabs daily rates will appear on the Stays.net calendar adjusted for any discount set for that stay length in the rate plans for that property. 


Setting up Length of Stay Pricing

If you have set up LOS premiums or discounts in your PriceLabs account for your listing like below:


Then, you need to have the same number of nights configured in your Stays account as well. Please configure the same number of nights in General Settings => Pricing => Pricing Per Night => Common Rate Plans as shown below:



Please note that it is necessary for the same number of nights to be configured in Stays as in LOS Pricing in PriceLabs, otherwise the missing nights in Stays will not receive the LOS price premiums or discounts from PriceLabs.
