On Vrbo, room categories are known as representative listings and, with this, the channel stipulates the following restrictions for the registration of these listings:
|Single partnership model
|These listings can only be advertised using the Pay-Per-Reservation partnership model (commission per reservation).
|Default rate structure
|Listings must follow the same rate structure.
Just configure the products on Stays using vertical rate groups.
|The availability of the listing will be formed by the sum of the calendars of the units in the room category.
It is the same logic of vertical rate groups.
|It is necessary to ensure that the reservations imported for the room category are allocated to the units in the category.
Stays will do this work automatically, if the vertical rate group is correct.
|Credit card for Vrbo charges
|It is mandatory that you provide a credit card on your Vrbo portal for the charging of reservation commissions.
|Follow Vrbo market guidelines
|Vrbo has some market rules and it is mandatory to follow them, as you may suffer sanctions in case of non-compliance.
|Follow Vrbo content guidelines
|The same applies to the content of listings to be sent to Vrbo, as the channel has guidelines on this as well.
|Maximum of 500 photos in the listing
|You will be able to add a maximum of 500 photos in the room category; this means that the sum of the images about your multi unit address and the parent listings must not exceed this number!
In addition to following these guidelines, it is important that in your Stays channel manager settings, you enable the sending of representative listings to Vrbo, from the [Configuration] tab in the section below:
