The first three guests who book your pool will get 20% off the price of their booking. This special offer can attract new guests, and help you get the first three reviews you need to receive your first 5-star ratings. You will not earn as much for your first three bookings, but it will be a great way to jump-start your listing, earn reviews, and build up your early customer list (for repeat bookings).
This discount provides a financial incentive for guests to book a new pool over existing pools that have 5-star reviews and are already trusted. The new host also benefits by gaining experience hosting and establishing a track record via swimmer reviews. Having 5-star ratings will help hosts improve their ranking in the search algorithm, which should then bring them even more bookings!
When you are adding a listing, and are done setting all of your pool and booking details and have passed the review, you'll see this screen:
The "Offer 20% off to your first guests" option is selected by default. If you don't want to offer this discount, select "Don’t add a special offer", but note that you can't later change your mind.
After those first three bookings, the 20% new-pool discount goes away.
Note that this discount is in addition to the normal host platform fee that is taken out of every booking.
