I got another funky email with another deadline telling me I had to
Review and print detailed instructions here, a red dot will appear next to each step you haven’t completed.
If you don’t complete the required steps by March 1, 2020, you'll receive future payouts after the traveler checks in.
Now my question is:
Of course I am on preferred payments and recent payouts took more than 2 weeks.
And my settings are such, that the majority of the money is due at check in - an old habit from times when I collected the funds at check-in.
So if I do not give permission for direct debit does that mean there can't be any charge backs? Does it mean HA cannot hold my money a week before transferring since the guest is already checked in? How does that work if I give DDA and HA decides to revoke my preferred payment status because I am saying something they don't like?
Moreover I now get emails from VacationRentals.com (which I thought did not even exist anymore because they were sold) encouraging me to update my rates (which I did on 2/1/2020), telling me I had 108 page views earning me 1 reservation ( which I am not sure which one)!
I for one have lost complete confidence in this whole set up.
I see Verbo commercials running non stop and the leads are pouring in from Airbnb and booking.com. NONE from VRBO for months.
How can I have faith to keep going when I have not even broken even last year with my yearly fees.
This is one of my busiest times during the year and my calendar is FULL but not with VRBO guests.
After 15+ years should I trust to invest more of my time and effort and energy into a little to no return venture?
I do not want a to be a guinea pig for a large company's trials and tribulations.
I know that this also will be a thread quickly being removed - but it expresses real issues I have no answers to - neither does CS. Who has them? Anyone guide me here?
