What is markup?
A markup is a percentage that is added onto the base rate before being synced to the sales channel. Here's a simple example:
Hostaway base rate: $100
Expedia markup: 15%
Booking.com markup: 20%
Website markup: 10%
Price exported to Expedia: $115
Price exported to Booking.com: $120
Price on Website: $110
Important: The software only uploads the value (100, 115, etc.) and will not perform currency exchange calculations. When you use different currencies per channel, you will need to adjust the markup according to this.
- A markup can be negative
