Discounts: Airbnb vs. Beyond Pricing

I currently use Beyond Pricing > OwnerRez > Airbnb

Right now I'm using Beyond Pricing to set discounts for:

  • Duration of Stay (ex: 10% discount for 7+ days)
  • Last Minute Bookings (ex: 20% off if reservation starts tomorrow)

So BP does all the math and pushes these discounts through in the form of a final rate. However, Airbnb also allows me to set discounts, and I'm wondering if I should manage my discounts within Airbnb instead? That way, Airbnb can acknowledge there is a specific % off promotion and hopefully provide a bump in visibility, rather than just seeing a lower price without any discounts.

Would love to hear your thoughts on this! I've searched and searched but don't really see people talking about this...

I’m trying to work out the same thing. As well as trying to get a strike through on my discount.

As far as I can work out, if you have an API connection you cannot put your discounts in Airbnb. You have to use OR. If you try to OR just overwrites them.

I’m  going round in circles.

Yes, that is generally correct that discounts should be put in OwnerRez.  But, it is still possible to produce the strikethroughs in Airbnb:

Hi;  I'm new to Beyond Pricing.  How do you set up 

  • Duration of Stay (ex: 10% discount for 7+ days) in BP?

Also, can I set up in BP a seasonal discount?  Thanks for any feedback.

Normally, you wouldn't want to set up a Length-of-Stay discount in Beyond Pricing - you'd do that in OwnerRez:

Similarly for seasonal discounts.
