Scheduling when your listings get a price update (Timed Sync)

Scheduling when your listings get a price update (Timed Sync)

PriceLabs automatically does an overnight price update to the PMS/Airbnb/VRBO listings that you have turned on for sync or almost instantly with Sync Now button. More here.

With our advanced sync settings, you can decide the time you want the sync to happen, the days you want the sync to happen and finally, you can also choose to sync prices more than often than once every 24 hours. 

  1. Scheduling a price sync at a time of your choice [Free with Dynamic Pricing subscription]. Instead of the default overnight sync, you can now choose what time in your local time-zone you want the sync to happen at! As an example, the screenshot below shows how to schedule the sync to happen at 8AM Denver time and for every day of the week.
  1. Scheduling more than one daily sync [Additional cost: $1/listing/month for each additional sync]. We generally suggest that syncing once a day is enough for most properties on PriceLabs. But if you manage a large portfolio and use a lot of occupancy based adjustments (OBA or POBA), intra-day syncs may also be helpful in making price changes based on your internal metrics more frequently.  As an example, the following screenshot shows how to sync at midnight, 8AM and 4PM Chicago time. This would add $2/listing on your monthly invoices for each of your listings syncing with PriceLabs. 

  1. Due to limitations on data collection and updates, the first free sync can only be scheduled between 00:00 and 18:00 GMT.
  2. We queue up your listings for a sync at the time you have chosen, but it might take a few minutes depending on the system load before the sync goes through!
