This article is a step by step breakdown on how to enable prorated rates in the system. By default, the system uses prorated rates. This means that if a booking is for 8 days, the system will divide the weekly rate by 7 to calculate the average daily rate and then use that same day rate for the additional day. When prorated rates are turned off it would calculate the weekly rate + the daily rate that are added in the system. To learn more about rates, click on this link here.
