Before proceeding with the instructions in this article, it is important to know that this is a very sensitive feature in relation to your pricing, so we recommend that you know the subjects below:

**I want to know more...** - How does sending prices to sales channels in relation to the exchange work?
**I want to know more...**

To correctly handle the default exchange rate on your Stays.net, it is important first to know a very basic concept: the exchange rate is changed every 24 hours, so you do not have full control over the result, but a tool to smooth out economic effects in your pricing, so we recommend using the feature only in last case, since the exchange rate of Stays.net is generated by the **CurrencyLayer** tool, one of the benchmarks in the market.

To calculate the percentage that will change the exchange rate of your Stays.net, follow the steps below:

Step | Summary | |
---|---|---|

1 | What is the default currency of your listings? | The first step in starting rate manipulation is to identify which currencies are your listings defaults. Usually, it is a default currency that will serve as a basis for converting to other currencies. As a practical example, we will assume our default currency is real (BRL) and we want to convert to US dollar (USD). |

2 | Calculate the current exchange rate or a base rate you want to use | The math is simple: just pick 1 dollar (USD) and divide by the corresponding amount in your default currency.As an example, we will use the system quotation and, from the currency calculator, we can check the quotation: The rate from the calculation would be 1/5,89, so it would be 0,1697792869269949. |

3 | Do the same calculation, but for the rate you want to convert | Assuming you want that on your Stays.net, the US dollar to be equivalent to 4 reais, just calculate 1/4 to generate the exchange rate. In this case you would have 0,25 in the calculation. |

4 | Divide the ideal rate by the current quotation | In our example, it would be 0,25 / 0,1697792869269949.The result will be 1,4725. |

5 | Subtract the rate by 1 and multiply by 100 | In our example, we got 1,4725 so when subtracting by 1, we have 0,4725.By multiplying 0,4725 by 100, we get to 47,25! |

6 | Round the result to insert into the system | Stays.net will accept rate handling between 1 to 100%, integer amounts, so as we have 47,25% as a result, we will use 47% in the [BRLUSD] field in the [Multiplier for Exchange Rate]. |

Once you have obtained the rate, just enter it in the corresponding field in the [Multiplier for Exchange Rate] tool in your system settings.

The change will be applied in approximately 12 hours, for technical reasons.
