Plum has a dashboard that allows you to edit various settings in regard to your listing (home). If you are looking for account-related settings please go here. Account Settings are more universal (your email address, host photo) while listing settings are specific to that listing.
This article covers Pricing, these 2 other articles cover other listing settings:
This video demonstrates how you can adjust your prices, fees and discounts
The nightly price is also known as the base rate and it is the amount you as the host receive before all additional fees. This rate should be the same as other platforms or your direct website.
Weekend Prices (Friday and Saturday evening)
The weekend price is also known as the weekend base rate and it is the amount you as the host receive before all additional fees for stays over the weekend
If you are enrolled in our Price Sync tool or using an API connection, please note this will override your dashboard prices. However, please do maintain your base nightly rate and discounts to ensure the accuracy of the tool.
These are added to the total cost of the book. This does not vary with the number of days of the booking or the number of guests.
Additional Guest Fee
You can set how much extra you would like to charge per guest per night after x guest number.
E.g. £10 per guest after 3 guests, this means for each guest number higher than 3 guests an additional £10 is charged per guest per night. E.g. 6 guests = (6-3) 3 x £10 per night.

We encourage you to set Discounts for different lengths of stay in order to encourage longer bookings.
Discounts can be set on Weekly Stays (7-27 Days) and Monthly Stays (28 and more days).
The discount % is applied to your nightly, weekend or custom nightly price. E.g. Before cleaning and additional guest fees.
These can be set in the pricing tab.
We do not offer discounts other than the two above, if you want to reduce the price for a specific day you need to use calendar as above to do this.
You can set a security deposit amount to cover any guest damages above general wear and tear. Please note that if a large amount is set this may deter bookings.
In order to claim this amount, you must contact our Host Care Team. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org or connect via live chat here. You must report all damage within 48 hours of the guest checking out.
You can set this in the Pricing and terms section of your dashboard
