I must admit, at first I was reluctant to leave our WordPress website behind when we came on board with MyVR.
In 2018, we had done 4k in new users 5.9k in page views with the WordPress site , booking widgets, embedded calendars, etc.
We had to do double work with every new property we added, setting them up in MyVR as well as the WordPress site.
We waited five months after coming onboard to launch using the MyVR templates to create a far superior product in February, 2019. We left the WordPress site up.
Between the two, we cranked out the numbers above. Then 2020 came. We were shut down for leisure travel for three and a half months.
We pivoted to marketing for essential travelers, and as we reopened, our out of state travelers kept cancelling. We raised our Pandemic Discounted Rates each time we had a cancellation. We booked one property for the month of August FIVE times!
Our MyVR website really did a great job of pulling us back from the Spring. Our 2020 New Users grew to 10.1k with 18.3k pageviews as repeat customers returned. We actually booked $1,130k AFTER cancellations through the website.
Four months into 2021, we have seen 4k new visitors, 5.9k pageviews and $629k in Revenue. That’s greater than $150 per click.
Many thanks to the MyVR team for putting forth such a great product.
@carl-vidal said in Can you use Price labs and Wheelhouse on the same account?:
other listing will be un
To give everyone an update It appears you can have both Wheelhouse and Price labs Apps active. You can select the specific property that each will feed. You can not however, nor would you want, have the software’s active for the same property. Incase you have a property that is in an unsupported area by one of the software’s, you can use the alternative.
Is your request to create an inquiry or a new reservation?
I agree that a new feature request for “copy an inquiry” would be helpful. I submitted one at some point, but more interest in that could bump it up the list.
I can tell you what I do, but others may have different ideas.
At the moment, I mostly just cut and paste, unless I feel more than 50% certain that they will book. If I do, then I copy and paste a previous reservation (which only creates a tentative reservation) and that will roll over their “on file” payment information in case it’s needed. If they don’t book, then I switch the email to my own, delete the reservation, and then change the email back (so as not to email the guest about a cancelled reservation).
@joseph-sennish said in Best practice for Stripe accounts for managing others money:
ys as a Long Term rental and we have had to revise our accounting practices across the board to accommodate those longer rentals.
So, AirBnb, VRBO, etc. have always paid into just one Trust Account. Thats something we would love to get a better handle on.
We’ve update our Inquiry Auto Responder to reflect updated Guidance from our County Health Department.
Thank you for submitting an inquiry. We are currently reviewing your request and will get back to you shortly.
Monterey County has extended it’s shelter at home order until further notice. The County has ordered we do not advertise or accept short term rentals of 30 days or less for stays, unless:
Our guests are coming for work deemed essential.
To provide necessary care for a family member or pet in another household who has no other source of care.
3)To move residences, but only if it is not possible to defer an already planned move, if the move is necessitated by safety, sanitation, or habitability reasons, if the move is necessary to preserve access to shelter, or necessary to secure employment in an essential service.
Travel related to the provision of or access to Essential Activities, Essential Infrastructure, Essential Governmental Functions, Essential Businesses, or Minimum Basic Operations.
Travel to care for any elderly, minors, dependents , or persons with disabilities.
Travel required by law enforcement or court order.
Travel to manage after-death arrangements and burial.
Travel to arrange for shelter or avoid homelessness.
Travel to avoid domestic violence or child abuse.
Travel for parental custody arrangements.
At this time, the Monterey County Board of Supervisors requires us to ask for all rentals, of 30 days or less; Will you be travelling, or performing work, deemed essential under State and Federal Guidelines?
If you can respond with an affirmative answer, we may proceed with your reservation.
Do you guys have any “Line Item” fields dropping to the Google Sheet? That can cause multiple rows to be created because of the nature of line items.
Line items are seen mostly in financial context and equivalent to a receipt from the grocery store.
If I buy an apple, an orange and a banana, costing $0.50, $0.75 and $0.50 and decided to write the information from the receipt to Google sheets, it would drop as three rows:
Name. Item. Qty. Price.
Steven. Bananna. 1. $0.50
Steven. Apple. 1. $0.50
Steven. Orange. 1. $0.75
I didn’t see you mention any line item
fields but wanted to mention it. There are many ways around this using Zapier’s formatter action. You can find more details here: https://zapier.com/apps/formatter/help
I’m happy to help if you have specific questions. I can’t think of any other reasons this would happen, especially because Zapier remembers what data has already been processed. It could be a glitch, like you said but I haven’t experienced it (yet!).
