So I have a little bone to pick about the response rate. Almost daily, I get 50% of either inquiries or booking requests after 11pm. Because of this, I’ve seen myself not be able to feel comfortable going to sleep because I’m so fearful that I’ll fall asleep and 6-8 hours later when I get up I’ll have several messages that I haven’t gotten to. As clearly noted by Peerspace, your response rate can either improve or hurt your ranking in search.
With that, I have a suggestion for the devs. Allow hosts to have an 8-hour period, specified by the host, where they will not be penalized for not responding immediately to inquiries. Allowing hosts to sleep a little easier knowing that they won’t get penalized for not responding because they are asleep. Anyone else have this issue?
