I am not sure if this has been discussed previously (I could not find it in the search) and I am suspecting that the answer is NO.   But is there any way to get optional surcharges to be available for booking though channels?  Case in point:  I have an optional pool heating surcharge.  If the renters select it, then it adds $15/night to the overall rate and I then know to activate the heating for them.   Most of my bookings come through AirBnB and some through VRBO and a small few through direct.   Is there anyway when someone books through AirBnB that they can see the pool heating option and check it?  Or is this a limitation of the channel manager and/or of the booking sites?

Tx.

I'm curious about this as well.

At present there is not - but, it could (mostly) be done.  We'd need to rewrite our Add-On Services functionality, which is something that needs doing anyway, but, no current ETA.

I'm moving this over to the Feature Request forum so we can gauge interest on this function.  You'll want to vote it up yourself.
