Quick introduction to smart rates
By default Uplisting add's 3% (Airbnb) and 15% (Booking.com) when syncing prices. We call these Smart Rates. You can learn more about Smart Rates here.
Introduction to custom commission
You can override the default commission levels on the Automate screen. This allows you to ensure service and 'extra hassle' charges are accounted for and experiment with prices.
For example you could set +35% for Booking.com and -10% for Airbnb.
How does customer commission work?
It's simple, whatever custom commission you set will be multiplied by the Smart Rate you enter as a base rate, calendar rate or using the bulk update rate feature.
- 20% custom commission for Airbnb
- 10% for Booking.com
Entering a value of $100 as a Smart Rate will result in:
- $120 synced to Airbnb
- $110 synced to Booking.com
The Automate page has a handy calculator so you can easily see the rates that will sync to each booking site.
How do I know what rates are synced?
Assuming you have connected to Airbnb (at least), you will notice a 'show booking site rates' button on the right hand side of the calendar toolbar. Selecting this will show 3 extra rows for each listing (as shown below).
I don't want any commission on my rates
Just enter 0 and no commission will be added on top.
