Smart Pricing during disasters and emergencies
We may temporarily turn off Smart Pricing to prevent extreme price changes and comply with local laws during events like natural disasters, emergencies, or political unrest.
Even if your listing isn’t in the directly affected area, we may still turn it off if the event is influencing nearby listing prices. We’ll be sure to notify you when we turn it off and on again—the length of time depends on the event.
When Smart Pricing is off, your prices stop adjusting automatically, but you can still manually change pricing for any date on your calendar. Just make sure to follow local pricing laws, which may apply in areas affected by emergencies.
