Airbnb quote via channel does not include channel upcharge? (API integrated)

Forgive me, I only get an Airbnb inquiry once in 6 months. So not very familiar. had an inquiry come in. It suggest "create and send quote" via channel as "special offer". My channel setting is to upcharge 10% on Airbnb. But when quote (as "special offer") was created, it did not look like it had 10% upcharge. I ran a "channel rate tester" and that showed correct amount with upcharge. "Special offer" quote:
Rent 5 nights 2,706.00 $2,706.00
Surcharge Cleaning Fee 190.00 $190.00
Total: $2,896.00

Channel Rate tester for same dates:
Rent 5 nights 2,976.60 $2,976.60
Surcharge Cleaning Fee 209.00 $209.00
Total $3,185.60

quite a difference!

Hmm. Yes, Airbnb is a bit different because everything is done as a special offer. Currently it is using the base rates, assuming you'll be adjusting. But it does make more sense to calculate with the rate adjustment and then you can adjust from that amount if needed.

We'll get a fix in place for that.

Yes, good thing they did not book.

Thank you! Same to you! Maybe someone can test this - I rarely get ABB inquiries.
