RoomRaccoon offers the hotelier the possibility to fluctuate prices based on availability. For example, you can set up a last-minute deal for bookings that are made 3 days before arrival to have a discount or increase in prices. You can set Yield rules by clicking on the Rates & Availability on the left hand side of the screen and by opening the Yield tab. Here you can then set a rule. 

Set range:
Click on the Rates & Availability link on the left hand side of the screen.
Select how much availability you want to perform the action at. For example: When my occupancy is 0 - 50 % full, I want yield to adjust my rates
Select if you would like this to apply to your whole accommodation or to specific room types.
Indicate the number of days/weeks before check-in that this yield would be applicable for.

Set the action:
You can give a discount, or a surcharge. In addition, you can indicate on which days of the week and for which months you would like to set this rule.

Set the rate types

Finally, you can set the rate types for which you want to perform the action. You can set this on the right hand side of the page. For example, you can set this only for your external channels. So promotions can be given from RoomRaccoon!

Set the control:

Next, the channel manager can check which rates are or are not influenced by Yield. This can be seen because the rates that are affected by Yield are given a light blue colour. 


Have you created and activated Yield rules but cannot see them yet? Yield will only adjust after there has been a change in availability. You can manipulate this by creating your own reservation in the calendar and cancelling it.
I want to adjust the rates for a specific day or period but I don't want Yield to adjust the rates above that. Is this possible? Yes, you can! Perform a bulk action over the whole accommodation to adjust the rates. There is an option to make the rate 'Overridable by Yield'. If you tick this option Yield will overwrite the price, if you keep it unticked the price will not be overwritten.
What kind of rules can I make? Don't have any Yield rules activated yet? We have ones you can activate immediately!
There's an exclamation mark on my rates in Yield, what does it mean? This means that you have multiple Yield rules active that conflict with each other. This is not possible. Check your Yield rules and make sure that the period or occupancy is the same.
