We have no control over how often Wimdu update calendars. It can be as slow as once per day. 
Consider setting Wimdu to requests rather than confirmed bookings.

Price Multiplier

If you want to add a multiplier to your prices, for example because the channel requires a different currency to your Beds24 currency, add a * followed by the multiplier number in the "Multiplier" field.

For example a hotel id setting *1.23 will multiply all prices by 1.23 sent. (i.e. raised by 23%) Lower prices can be sent with a multiplier less than 1, i.e. *0.85 will send a price 85% of the normal price (i.e. lowered by 15%)

To convert the price of bookings imported from the channel add a * after the multiplier, for example *1.23* will divide the price of the booking by 1.23.

You can also use currency conversion template variable. All currencies supported by the booking page currency selector can be used.

For example *[CONVERT:IDR-EUR] will convert Indonesian Rupees to Euros.
