Is there a way to bulk import rates or manipulate the rates through an API or even PHP/Wordpress functions?
Basically the situation is we have a separate channel manager system we use to manage bookings on Expedia and others. When we make pricing updates we’d like everything to match and not have to manually update Hotel Booking rates through the WordPress interface.
It would also give me the ability to make my own dynamic rates, or even program last minute deals automatically if I’m able to change the rates in Hotel Booking.
Thank you!February 16, 2021 at 11:59 pm #1075769Andre FloresModerator
Unfortunately, there is no such option in the Hotel Booking plugin. We do have a similar feature request and I have added you up-vote to it. Currently we are collecting a feedback from our users regarding this matter and in case there are more requests, we might consider adding this feature in one of the plugin future updates.

Rate setup Motopress
Bom dia Andre,
to setup a rate to accommodate the different possibilities and seasons requires a long process. It is admin intensive and to maintain is the other side.
I think Mogopress should re-think the way rates are added mainly for extra guests.
I think the rate for extra guests as a one off fee per extra guest taking in consideration if you want to include children for this calculation or not.
THis happens with other booking systems and it makes it much more easy to manage. See example below from one of you competitors:March 15, 2021 at 1:41 am #1089694Andre FloresModerator
Thank you for your suggestion, it is much appreciated. We might take it into consideration for future plugin updates.

I found this topic as I was just about to open one on this point. You can count me as an upvote Andre, but I am surprised not to be able to edit this directly in the SQL database or in MPHB files. Where are the rates data stored?
Because I don’t care if it is not user-friendly and if I have to go edit the SQL database directly, as long as I avoid filling 7 seasons for 80 properties… It’ll take ages.
Many thanksMarch 18, 2021 at 1:16 am #1091716Andre FloresModerator
Thank you for your up-vote, it has been counted.
The Rates appear to be a custom post type, so they are stored in the the wp_options table.
Basically, the plugin was not built to have an ability to export/import rates.

from @Martin’s suggestion, I wouldnt mind to edit from SQL as well.
I have actually tried it! hOwever found it so complex to edit and mirror or adapt to other rooms
I only have to fill 3 properties (80 properties is a no end job!! )
Thank youMarch 26, 2021 at 12:04 am #1095575Kris KjerrumgaardParticipant
Here is another upvote. Bulk edit or an import/export function is really needed.
Thank you in advance!March 29, 2021 at 11:31 pm #1097245Andre FloresModerator
