Pricing

In order to prepare a quote, you will need the following:

1) The number of rooms the property wants to put online through NightsBridge.

2) Is the property location in South Africa/Namibia (ZAR)/(NAD) or out of South Africa (USD)?

3) Number of Extranets the property will be linking to.

4) To know if they will be joining Springnest and/or PayBridge.

5) The pricing calculator.

The Pricing Calculator

The pricing calculator has multiple sheets located at the bottom of Excel. Below is a legend:

Feb2019 - The basic input fields.

Pricing Structure - The table where our pricing is edited each year.

ZAR Q - Where extras are added as well as output of Feb 2019.

Multi-Hotel IDs - The table where our pricing is edited each year.

Africa USD - The out of South Africa pricing.

Single Unit Properties - Pro Forma for Single Unit Properties.

Quotation 1 month - Template for 1 month

Quotation 6 months - Template for 6 months

Quotation 12 months - Template for 12 months

Fields in yellow are the ones you should edit. This will automatically populate the figures on each applicable sheet.

Adding Quotes to Touch and Billing Notes

Adding the pricing to the accounts tab in Touch is very important, this allows other staff to see what the client was originally quoted to handle any disputes should the need arise.

There is a section in our pricing calculator that allows you to merely copy the information and past it into Touch. See the example below:

Pay in Advance and Receive a Discount

Pay upfront for 6 months and receive 5% discount.

Pay upfront for 1 year and receive 10% discount.

Dorm/Backpacker Pricing

If a client sells beds instead of rooms, like a backpacker or  dorms, their price will be based on half the number of 'beds' listed,  not half the rand amount.

E.G. If they have 120 beds you would use the pricing calculator and work out the fees for 60 rooms (120x50% = 60)

Do not work out the cost for 120 rooms and then divide the ZAR amount by 2.
