How do I add/edit my manual pricing?

This article applies only if you choose to price your properties manually. If you wish to set-up automatic, dynamic pricing instead, click here.

Adding Pricing and Short Breaks is a key part of configuring your account. These settings tell the system what to quote when guests search for specific dates, as well as the minimum and maximum length of time they may stay from any particular arrival date. 

How do I add my pricing manually?

1.  Go to Properties > Edit > select property > Price planner > Go.

2. To add prices click on the date your first price band should start within the Prices row.

3. In the pop-up window, enter your last date (this should be the day before your next price band starts). Price bands can run for as long as you wish to offer that specific set of prices. They do not need to run for complete months.

Pricing Models-

You can set-up pricing using one of two types of manual pricing models. 

'Length-of-stay' pricing: This is where each weekday/weekend length of stay is priced separately, as shown below:

This can be specified by selecting 'Fixed-Price for number of nights' on the Settings page for each property. Then Save.

'Daily' pricing: This is where each weekday/weekend day is priced individually, as shown below:

Short breaks are then priced as the sum of the individual nights involved. 

If you wish to use this option, please ask for it to be enabled on your account. You can then select 'Daily Prices'  on the Settings page for each property. Then Save.

The option 'Calculate Prices for each day', if ticked, makes your weekly price the sum of the individual 7 nights. If unticked, you can set a separate weekly price manually.

4. Enter your weekly pricing and short break pricing, then Save. 

N.B. Any stay including a Friday or a Saturday night would be classed as a 'weekend' rate, i.e. Thurs, Fri and Sat nights would be priced as '3 nights weekend'.

Note- if you wish to offer stays of longer than 7 nights, ensure that you have added pricing for 1 and 2 nights, even if you do not offer these lengths of stay for short breaks. The reason is that the system will calculate stays of longer than 7 nights as Weekly Price + Short Break Price. Therefore, for example, an 8 night stay would need a 1 night price in the Price Band to calculate the 8 night price. 

Adding a 1 night price does NOT make a 1 night stay bookable. The allowed length of stay for Short Breaks is dictated by your Short Break bands. 

How do I add my Short Break Settings to my Price Planner?

1.  Go to Properties > Edit > select property > Price planner > Go.

2. If you want to add short breaks click on the date your short breaks should start from within the Short breaks row.

3. Next you can choose the date range for when you would like to allow short breaks.  Once you click on your start date a pop-up window will appear allowing you to enter an end date. Your start days and length of stay will populate based on your settings within Properties > Edit > select property > Settings > Go.

N/A denotes 'Not Available' and would therefore prevent a short break starting on that day of the week.

The tick box Short breaks cannot extend beyond this date: If ticked, this would prevent a short break crossing over into an adjacent Short Break band. 

Make sure that you have selected a value for each of the min and max fields for a day.  If you have the min field as N/A and the Max as 7 for example, this will not save the latter as two values are needed e.g. 1 to 7. 

Short Break departure Grid-

If you have a custom departure grid enabled in your account it means you can be in full control when it comes to departure days for your short breaks. If you require this add-on to be enabled within your account contact support@supercontrol.co.uk.

3. On the left hand side you are presented with "Arrival days" and along the top of the table you will see columns for "Allowed departure days".

For example, if you want to allow a guest to arrive on a Monday and depart on a Thursday or Friday only, you would tick these boxes. 

If you allow a 7 night booking from a Monday, ensure you tick Monday as well:

This means for any number of nights below 7, the guest can depart on a Thursday or Friday (3 or 4 nights).

If a guest is staying for one week or more and you wish to be slightly more flexible you can use the "7+ nights" row to do this. For example, from a Monday if a guest stays more than a week you may allow them to depart on a Thursday, Friday, Sunday or Monday and it would look like this:

It will then display like this to a guest:

4. Once you have your short break settings complete for each day click Save.

5. To populate these settings to your Price Planner click "Update short breaks for this property".

How do I edit my manual pricing and Short Break bands?

1. Go to Properties > Edit > select property > Price planner > Go.

2. Click on your blue price band within your Prices row:

3. Then you can update your weekly price and short break pricing and Save. Repeat on your other price bands if necessary.

4. To update your short break length of stay settings click the orange bar within the Short breaks row:

Hi
I have added my pricing, however in my website it is not showing 2018 pricing, what do I have to do to make 2018 visible on my website?

Rosie Georgeson

Hi Eugene,

You need to extend how long your calendars display on your website. You can edit this in Properties > Chart display. From here you can set your calendars to show as far in advance as you like. You can find more information in this article http://help.supercontrol.co.uk/m/using-supercontrol/l/631637-how-do-i-show-more-months-on-my-availability-calendar

Kind regards
Rosie

if the short breks are set for say 5 days min does this mean it is applied all the dates it is set or only applied when you set apply 14 days before. if you have to apply it on a restricted time before the date you wish to get booked then it means the short breaks do not apply - it is off all other times. I probably need time to work that one out too.

Hi Anne,

In your Price Planner if you have your minimum nights set to 5, this setting will only take effect during the periods you have your orange short break line enabled. If you have further details on your situation please contact support@supercontrol.co.uk and we can help diagnose any issues you may be having.

Kind regards
Rosie
