With Beyond Pricing’s integration into Hostfully, you can easily sync all of your Beyond Pricing nightly rates automatically to your Hostfully calendar. From here, your prices will be synced to your booking widget as well as all your listing channels if you use Hostfully's channel management capabilities.
Connecting your account
Here’s how to get started:
Step 1 - Login to your Hostfully account and enable the Beyond Pricing Integration on the Integrations Page.
You can then click on the Settings link to get into the management page each property, and activate each property individually to turn on dynamic pricing.
Step 2 - Go to the Agency Settings page and scroll all the way to the bottom of the page to find your UID. Copy your UID. (instructions here)
Step 3 - Log into Beyond Pricing and click on the "Link Another Account" button and you will see the option to link Hostfully. Enter the UID, click Link Account and we will start importing your listings.
Note: If you already connected directly to Airbnb, VRBO or Booking.com? Deactivate any Beyond Pricing listings connected to those channels if Hostfully is pushing prices to them. Please see this guide for transitioning from a direct connection to Hostfully.
On the Pricing tab (Property Settings) for each property, you should see your nightly rates now showing in orange. This means your prices are now automated and provided by Beyond Pricing’s algorithm:
You can now sit back, relax, and let Hostfully + Beyond Pricing optimize your nightly rates with daily updates for all your properties. Note that dynamic prices will populate Hostfully's rate table, and as such, dynamic rates are pushed through to our search engine, our widget, our API and across all channels you distribute to through Hostfully.
Customization in Beyond Pricing

Other usage notes:
Note that those dynamic prices will now be sent through to the Hostfully widget and the Hostfully API, if you use them. If you use Hostfully Channel Management, the dynamic prices will also be pushed through those channels automatically.
Beyond Pricing sends rates for a maximum of 1 year out. This means if you have your booking window set to more than a year out, the nightly base price (in Main Settings) will become the rate for those dates and be pushed to the channels.
This is the recommended approach by Beyond Pricing and we suggest setting the booking window in main settings to 12 months. If you would like a longer booking window, please reach out to your account manager at Beyond Pricing to request they push rates to Hostfully for longer periods of time and of course, set your booking window field in Hostfully main settings to reflect your choice.
On the exception of "Length of Stay" discount setting, please refer to the related help article for more details.
If the integration is no longer active, the rates received from dynamic pricing providers are removed from Hostfully.
We don't often experience issues with this integration. However, if you are here, it's probably because you ran into an issue!
