Read Below to learn about recently added Boost features and some really great changes - coming soon!
Airbnb: Last Minute & Early Bird Discounts
You can now add Airbnb Last Minute and Early Bird discounts in Boost! These can be applied at the Channel Settings or at the listing level, via the Listing Settings override or Bulk Edit .
If you have previously set these discounts up in your Airbnb host account, Boost won't override them unless you set the options to 'No' in Boost.
When the user selects YES, they do offer a discount, they will need to put in the logic for it.
Early Bird Discount:
This discount allows you to incentivize guest to book their stays further in advance.
The way the logic works for last minute discounts is, you select the amount of days for the discount to apply between. Note: it must be between 1 - 27 days. If a guest books within that timeframe, then a % discount (of your choosing) will apply to the rent.
Example: Last Minute Discount of 10% for 7 days from check-in
Set the last minute discount to 7 days.
Set their percent discount to 10%
Result: if a guest books from 1 - 7 days of check-in, a 10% discount will apply to the rent on this reservation.
