What is dynamic pricing on Shuttlers?
Dynamic pricing on Shuttlers refers to the practice of adjusting the prices of its shuttle services in real-time based on various factors, such as supply, cost of fuel, cost of insurance, tolls, the state of roads along the route, and distance.
How does dynamic pricing work on Shuttlers?
Shuttlers uses a sophisticated algorithm to monitor the cost of supply of its shuttle services. Based on this information, the algorithm automatically adjusts the prices of the shuttle services to ensure that the supply of shuttles meets the demand of the customers at any given time.
How is dynamic pricing different from surge pricing?
Dynamic pricing is a pricing model where fares are adjusted in real-time based on supply factors, resulting in prices that vary based on the current market conditions. In contrast, surge pricing, on the other hand, is a specific type of dynamic pricing used where pricing increases in times of high demand, such as a rush hour or during inclement weather, and the prices for rides can increase significantly, sometimes up to several times the normal fare. We do not currently have surge or peak pricing.
How is dynamic pricing different from fixed pricing?
Fixed pricing is a pricing model where the prices of a product or service are constant, regardless of demand and supply factors. In contrast, dynamic pricing adjusts prices in real-time based on supply factors, resulting in prices that vary based on the current market conditions.
Why does Shuttlers use dynamic pricing?
Shuttlers uses dynamic pricing to ensure that there is no loss in revenue and to provide a better experience for its customers. By adjusting the prices based on real-time market conditions, we can ensure that our services are always available to customers at a fair price while also making our business sustainable so that we can continue to serve you.
Will I be charged more during peak hours?
No, dynamic pricing on Shuttlers doesn’t factor in peak periods at the moment.
Can I see the price before I book a shuttle on Shuttlers?
Yes, Shuttlers displays the price of the shuttle service before you book it; this price doesn’t change after a booking has been confirmed. The price will be displayed along with the pickup and drop-off locations, the trip start time, and other relevant information about the shuttle service.
How can I save money on Shuttlers?
You can save money on Shuttlers by subscribing for a full month at the beginning of the month at a fare that is favourable to you. Additionally, you can earn more wallet credit when you refer your friends to Shuttlers using your referral code, every successful referral gives you N200.
Why do customers see different fares on the same route?
Customers may see different fares on the same route due to dynamic pricing. Dynamic pricing adjusts prices in real-time based on various factors, such as the type of vehicle deployed on the route and the cost of the vehicle supplied. This means that prices can fluctuate depending on supply factors. As such, customers booking on different days may see different fares for the same route. We advise that you subscribe for the month when you find a favourable fare.
How does Dynamic pricing affect Exclusive B2B and Shared B2B?
Pricing for Exclusive and Dedicated-Shared businesses are based on the contract signed with the business, pricing is fixed until changes are communicated to them in line with the terms of the contract, while Shared businesses (non-dedicated) are subject to the fares on shared routes.
