VI. If presented with a Rate Selection screen, choose the "Default" Rate Plan
Since myallocator can only control one Rate Plan, we always recommend that you select the "Default" or "Standard" Rate Plan on this screen. The Default Rate is always the first (top) rate presented.
Once chosen, we will control Rates for this rate plan only - any other Rate Plans must be setup to be derived from the Defualt Rate.
More information about Rate Plans can be found here: Rateplan Support
VII. Enter a Base Rate Adjustment (if desired)
Click here to learn more about the Base Rate Adjustment. In most cases, this can be left blank.
More information can be found here: Setting Base Rate Adjustments
Note: If you need assistance in determining the values to enter for Net rates versus Sell rates for Tax purposes, please see this article: Creating Taxes & Fees
VIII. Choose the Agoda Channel-Specific Options
1. The first option to choose is the Currency.
The currency selected must always match your default currency of your Agoda Extranet.
