When a potential guest sends an inquiry for specific dates, encourage the booking process by pre-approving their stay and sending them an invitation. Alternatively, you can sweeten the deal by providing a discount to entice them further.

This can be done via the Pridebnb messaging system by sending them the message below. Feel free to copy, paste, modify in any way that fits your needs.

As of now, Pridebnb does not have a direct discount feature. However, if you wish to provide a discount to your guests, below is how you can do that, along with a few considerations regarding payment and commission:

  1. Host-Initiated Discount: If you, as the Host, decide to offer a discount to guests, you have the flexibility to adjust the listing price accordingly. In this case, the commission will still be based on the original listing price, and you, as the Host, will receive the reduced amount after the discount is applied.

  2. Commission Adjustment: Currently, Pridebnb does not automatically reduce the commission based on any discounts offered. If you choose to offer discounts, the commission will be calculated based on the original listing price.

  3. Transparent Communication: While you can manually reduce your listing price to offer a discount, it might be more explicit to communicate the discount to potential guests through messaging or your listing description. This ensures clarity for guests and helps build trust.

  4. Future Updates: Please note that features and functionalities on Pridebnb are subject to change and improvement over time. The platform may introduce new features, including direct discount options, in the future.

We understand that offering special offers and discounts can be an essential part of providing a great guest experience. As a Host, you can choose to manage discounts in a way that best suits your hosting goals and preferences. For any further updates on the discount feature or commission adjustments, keep an eye on our official announcements and updates on the platform.
