Tiered rates needed


#1

It would be tremendously helpful if the IT team at Peerspace could create a way to show tiered rates ( i.e. By crew size).

As i didn’t want to risk losing the booking, I felt forced to agree to the flat fee that shows up above the start booking button for a crew of 15. In the end its only a difference of $175, but it could have been a lot worse as the crew size increases.

Thank you,
Susan

Hi Susan,

Its best to add all your costs on your description, I have this as well. The only hesitation I get is from the people who do not read the description.

Oh it’s mighty clear in the summary and there’s a bold note telling users to review them.
We need an IT solution to this.
Narrative can’t ever work.
There has to be a specific rate selection that users have to make at the point of booking.

Yup. It is needed.
Some of us have varying rates.

  • No one really reads the listing anymore.

As an example, I have a 6 hour minimum for the space, but the site lets the guest request to book less than 6 hours, and then the guest is surprised when I tell them about the minimum. I can see where this might be helpful in some cases, but I find that when the guest sees they can ‘request to book’ less than the minimum number of hours, they will try to do so, thinking it’s negotiable. In my opinion, Peerspace shouldn’t allow the guest to request to book less than the specified minimum, or the guest should have to ask whether or not the host will allow them to book less than their minimum.

And I agree that tiered rates as well as options for ‘add-ons’ would go a long way to help us better offer our services and go beyond simply booking the space.

Yup! Tiered rates or custom rates like Airbnb. Very necessary. We double our $$$ every month by quoting custom rates.

Hi Ted, we hear you and we are working on this. Stay tuned.

Hi Graham,

Do you have a photostudio or a home on Airbnb?

Are you looking for something where you can price a higher rate on say the weekend, after hours or holiday?

So not sure if this helps or if I am doing this right but I have a different listing based on use of the same space. So I have a pic focused on the area of the piano and this is $25 per hour for piano and voice lessons or an individual’s rehearsal or camera phone video. This piano is in the large space that I rent for parties at $100 per hour. The difference is the minimum hours, price and the capacity. So the listing for the space with the piano capacity is 6. The party is 50.
