Whether you choose advanced or basic pricing, the tenant will always pay the entire first month's rent to book a place. This will be the case for all the contract types (daily, fortnightly, or monthly) regardless of the tenant's move-in date.
Because the tenant will pay the entire first month's rent to book a place, any excess rent they pay in the first month is reduced from the second month's rent.
Rent calculations in advanced pricing
Daily contract — you charge rent only for the days a tenant stays.
Fortnightly — If the tenant stays for less than 14 days, you charge half a month's rent; if more than 14 days, an entire month's rent.
Monthly — you charge an entire month's rent regardless of the move-in or move-out dates.
