Acceptance rate is used as a guide for our Host to understand what percentage of requests to book they have approved. Accepting a request counts towards your acceptance rate, while expiring (not responding) or declining a request counts against it. Messaging the Hipcamper does not count as responding.
Your acceptance rate shows the percentage of booking requests you've accepted on a scale of 0 to 100%. (For example, if you expired your first booking request but accepted your second, your acceptance rate would be 50%.) It'll only appear on your dashboard homepage once you've responded to at least 1 booking request.
How to improve your acceptance rate:
- Remember that requests expire after 24 hours
- Opt-in to receive SMS alerts for new requests under "Manage account," located in the navigation on the top right corner
- Pro tip: make sure you've provided your cell number, not landline
- Ensure your calendar is synced and up-to-date
While your acceptance rate is not visible to Hipcampers, your response rate is. Hipcampers can see if you responded to your last 5 requests, but not how you responded.
