STAAH Instant can now support Visibility Booster offered by Booking.com! The commission feature added in STAAH Instant allows you to easily manage this tool via STAAH channel manager.
What’s the Visibility Booster?
Booking.com Visibility Booster offers you a way to boost your visibility on Booking.com – wherever and whenever you want to.
You can make your property stand out to bookers on Booking.com on certain high-demand dates, or during periods when you’re experiencing low sales or high cancellations.
By using this tool and adjusting the commission you pay, you can see what the increase in views are and the bookings you can expect. Booking.com estimate this based on their ongoing research into customer behaviour, booking trends and demand.
