In addition to offering weeknight discounts, you can also set your pricing to a specific amount for any day of the year. This can be useful if there is a special event happening nearby such as a music festival or chili cook off that you may want to raise your prices for. You can also lower your prices if you want to offer your listings at a discount in the shoulder season.
This feature is new and we're excited to offer it to you. This tool is only available on mobile at this time, and if you aren't a Host that uses Hipcamp from your phone or another mobile device, you can write to support to get help with adjusting your pricing for any specific dates. We're happy to do this for you. The tool will soon be available on desktop as well, so don't worry if you only log in to Hipcamp from a computer - we won't leave you hanging!
Steps for how to adjust your pricing on mobile
Go to hipcamp.com on a web browser on your phone or other mobile device and tap the menu in the upper left hand corner:
Tap the green button to navigate to your Host Dashboard:
Tap on the "Calendar" button:
You'll be taken to a view of your overall calendar for all listings. Tap "Manage."
Choose which listing you want to adjust the price for:
Tap onto the Pricing option in the top menu. You will be taken to a calendar view of that listing with all of the prices per night (rounded up or down to the nearest dollar). Tap on a date or range of dates that you want to adjust the pricing for and tap "Edit."
Scroll down to adjust your price for your date or range of dates, and tap save. You can then exit this edit view to be taken back to your calendar to see the updated pricing.
That's how to change your price for any night of the year!
Special note - you can reset your special pricing back to the standard rate (along with a weeknight discount if it applies) by going back to edit the adjusted dates again. Here's what that looks like:
We hope these instructions were useful, and that this tool helps you in all kinds of situations where you need to set a special price. Feel free to get in touch with Hipcamp Support if you have other questions about this or need further help!
