Dynamic pricing

Does Ownerez integrate with any dynamic pricing tools.

Re: Dynamic pricing

As far as I know, no. I use wheelhouse for my AirBNB and Tripadvisor listings, and when it comes to tripadvisor, I had to disconnect OR auto response with quote as I want to use WH set pricing, so I have to change my OR quotes to match the price set by wheelhouse..

Re: Dynamic pricing

We've looked into a couple, such as Wheelhouse and Beyond Pricing. What we heard was that they're all waiting on additional integrations till the new year.

If you've got a contact at one of those, we're happy to get talks started so we can work on the integration.

Re: Dynamic pricing

I do not have a contact per se, but an observation. when I stared with Wheelhouse, they had integration with Homeaway, Airbnb , tripadvisor and a few others. then apparently Homeway paused the integration. For a while on the WH dashboard there was a banner saying that they are investigating the problem and will update as soon as integration is restored. Now banner is gone, but so is Homeaway from the list of supported platforms. I have asked the question on Homeaway owners forum and had been told that there are "no plans" to restore integration with Wheelhouse. I think the reason is 2 fold: 1st, Homeaway is /will be rolling out their own dynamic pricing tool; 2nd, HA's fee is already dynamic, so 3rd party dynamic pricing potentially won't leave much room for the fee when it prices to market.

So I tried to use BP for my Homeaway properties. I find it wanting compared to Wheelhouse - some days were priced too low, some too high, I ended up turning it off for my 3 bd cabin and going back to manual pricing. I still have it on 4 bd, but it is hard to judge whether it is of any benefit - as I have been getting so few bookings via HA lately for that property.
if I were to choose, i would choose Wheelhouse.

Re: Dynamic pricing

Please look into Outswitch. It's a flat fee based dynamic pricing tool. It's not as flashy as BeyondPricing or Wheelhouse but it offers powerful tools for dynamic pricing, the most useful of which is a matrix that looks at the immediacy of vacancies vs. occupancy rates to apply a multiplier to rents. It also manipulates my minimum night requirements based on gaps and seasons.
Currently it integrates with AirBnB, Booking.com, agoda and RentalsUnited. They could use more partners.

Re: Dynamic pricing

Sounds like outswitch does not work with homeaway?

Re: Dynamic pricing

@Pedro -- thanks for the tip on Outswitch. We'll take a look. Young and hungry are typically the best partners ;-)

unfortunately that's currently the case. To get HomeAway integration with Outswitch you have to go through RentalsUnited. Hopefully they get it soon.
