@Jenny-Oest - It's certainly not ideal but it makes sense. I'm meeting with our accountant next week so I'll see what he recommends. Hopefully, we'll be able to establish a process to adequately, and accurately, assess this. I think we've just been a little spoiled by the previous platform we used which was able to sense the length of stay and access the correct amount of taxes we inputted. Thanks for your thoughts and suggestions.
Thanks. That's exactly what I just did and it worked great. Had to manually enter the $$$ they had left over and showed that as money in deposit.
Thanks to all who responded. We learn new things all the time !!!
There are several ways you can do this:
You can create a new quote with the added fee, and then use that quote to update your reservation terms.
You can do a "one-off charge" for the amount.
I tend to use the first option for things they're purchasing as part of their reservation. I save the One-off charge for post-stay items like postage charge for returning lost and found items, or billing for damages.
Thanks for writing in and inquiring about this. Nothing is required on your part at. When you connect your Stripe account with MyVR, we start receiving all webhook notifications associated with your account. From that point forward, if we receive notifications for refunds from Stripe related to your account, we update the payments/refunds in MyVR automatically. There is nothing you have to do - we handle all webhook processing for Stripe accounts connected to MyVR. This appears to be a courtesy Best Practices email Stripe sent to all customers, and your integration with MyVR already has you covered.
Let me know if I can clarify further.
@caroline-benzel if a payment fails, there's a 24-72 hour grace period for the payment to be captured. If unsuccessful after that point, the reservation would get cancelled and the dates would re-open.
My Stripe account was set up when I started MYVR.
I have had really good customer service from Stripe. If you log into your Stripe account and go to the Support page, you can chat with them or ask them to call you.
@Meredith-Garrett - Yes, you can expect to still see the MyVR application fee in your Stripe account. When we moved to the monthly invoicing, we only broke out the portion that we entirely own, which is the channel management fee.
If you're using WordPress, I would suggest the Contact Form 7 Plugin.
We use that on http://CoastEstate.net
I would also suggest you activate the Akismet API in order to block the flood of Spam you will receive through the Contact Form.
I just tried to do this. I have a rental agreement as a custom defined field. But when I drag this widget to my site, instead of allowing me to use a custom field, it just prints the Additional Info section.
@Heather-Wheatley We run 4 reports:
We go to Setup > API & Data Access >>
And then export these reports:
And then ... the fun starts ... Do you know how to work with Excel?
@tristan-brotherton it's almost that time again... when I run the Revenue Report, it doesn't show MyVR bookings that I get through my linked domain name, only channel (VRBO/Booking.com, etc.) bookings. Is there a report that shows ALL revenue, or am I missing something?
@anne-kohn - Thank you! That is the BEST possible news. My Account Manager at HomeAway said it was coming for PMs as well, but he probably didn't pay attention to the integrated listing factor. I trust MyVR info FAR FAR FAR more than HomeAway info, so I'm going with that! THANK YOU!
And HAPPY THANKSGIVING aka Turkey Day!
This new feature is part of our Product Update we rolled out earlier this month. See the full description with FAQs here, and our community post as well.
The Finances tab serves to show the difference between the channel commissions and MyVRs commissions on a per-reservation basis. We've always had this fee, and have just changed how we break it out and collect it.
You can download a full report of the MyVR commission fees from any month in the Billing > Invoices > Commission Invoices section. See this screenshot for an example of where to download the transaction data:
And you can also get a .CSV report using a custom date range from the Setup > API & Data Access > Exports > Manual Exports > Expenses section
@anne-kohn Thanks, Anne! I've determined that AirBnB is collecting and remitting taxes for reservations made through their site so it was just a matter of figuring out the rest of the process for non-AirBnB bookings. I think I have it sorted out now
