Introducing a new price type - "% of accommodation", is a game-changing feature for accommodation services. This new pricing type offers more flexibility in pricing, enabling accounts to dynamically adjust their prices according to demand and seasonal fluctuations.
In this article, we will discuss the background, use case, and the incorporation of the % of accommodation pricing type in custom product upsells and smart tools.
Offering dynamic pricing is essential for offering flexibility and maximizing revenue. Now, there is a better flexible pricing option that allows you to price based on a percentage of the reservation fee. By introducing the % of accommodation pricing type, you can now offer this flexibility to your customers.
For example, offering insurance coverage. Insurance coverage can only be offered as a percentage of the reservation fee. With the new percentage % of accommodation pricing type, you can easily add insurance coverage as an upsell to your reservation process, allowing customers to opt for this service at a percentage of their reservation fee.
