• RE: API key access

    Hi @Laura-McGlynn!

    Thanks for reaching out on the MyVR community. API access isn't something offered at the Rent By Owner level at the moment. The only plan that currently allows access to the MyVR API is the Property Manager Pro plan.

    This may be something that gets expanded to more plans down the line (or offered as an add-on), there isn't currently an estimated time frame for that though.

    Please let me know if you have questions!

  • RE: Using the "USE PROPERTY FILE" feature

    @Kirk-Nankivell Happy to help with this as it can be a little tricky if you're not sure where to go. 😉

    So, first you'll go to Setup > Custom Fields > Property and create a custom field where the Data Type is a file upload. Note: You can either upload a default file or leave it blank - leave blank if different properties will require different files. Then, you'll go to the property where you want to apply the custom file (Properties > Properties > [Property name] > Custom Fields) and, using the "More Actions" (three lines) drop-down to the right of the custom field, upload or replace (Delete and Upload) the file. Once you've selected the file for that property's custom field, it will be accessible to attach in your inquiry correspondence, as shown above.

    I hope this helps!

  • RE: Invoice with Itemized Billing

    No update on this specific feature request yet. With the recent hiring of 12 new MyVR employees over the span of 5 months, the company is making moves to handle a number of low-hanging fruit items. We'll continue to update everyone in the Product Features section of the platform. We appreciate your patience and votes on feature requests 🙂

  • RE: Getting a review posted on Homeaway

    @Roanne-Mayer great question - I'm linking a previous Community post here for reference. In short, you need the HomeAway review link which looks like this;

    For VRBO: www.vrbo.com/xxxxx/reviews/write
    For HomeAway: https://www.homeaway.com/vacation-rental/reviews/write/pXXXXXXX

    For both instances above the Xs represent the property listing number (specific to the channel).

    And then we recommend sending an email to collect the review.

    @Jenny-Oest sets them up in an automatic email that's sent out to users a day after checkout. See it here.

    Once a user completes that review, since we don't import reviews from the channels, we recommend you copy and past them into MyVR.

  • RE: Booking.com commission rates....did they go up?

    @Caroline-Benzel - I'm copying some information from an older thread that answers this question:

    On the commission, Booking.com likes us to refer users to them so they can answer this question. They prefer we say something like "starts at 15% and visit https://join.booking.com/ for more info".

    See the Booking.com Rates and Fees post for other thoughts around this.

  • RE: Setup MyVR Website using AWS Route 53

    Hi @Drew-Wade,

    Here is a general guide for pointing a custom domain name purchased outside of MyVR to a MyVR-hosted website.

    Point Your Custom Domain to Your MyVR Website

    While AWS Route 53 isn't mentioned specifically, the general steps should apply to this registrar as well.

    Please let us know if you would like additional assistance.

  • RE: Anyone using PriceLabs for Dynamic Pricing on MyVR?

    @mary-beth-ericson I can definitely provide some context. We recently launched a Beyond Pricing beta with a small group of users to get a feel for it right now. If you're interested in testing, I would recommending reaching out to support to see if you can get access.
