This has nothing to do with timing. This had to do with "internal errors" that switched payments off.
VRBO payments does "hold back" funds "so they can settle" (which is horse halooey) for up to two weeks after payment, even if the guest stays 1-2 days later.
This was someone, or something, at VRBO 'turning off' my payments and not alerting me to that fact.
I have the same experience as you have, as I have not received any deposit onto my bank account since Sep 12/2019 .
The tenants have paid their rent to VRBO, and I have given them access to the house, but no money from VRBO. to my bank account.
Every time I call or use the chat forum for help, I get the same answer: Technical problems, it will be taken care of in two three days.
What can I do?
Best regards from a desperat Dane.
Well not surprisingly, nobody ever called back.
So I called back, and was informed that "nobody ever tells you we will call you back, that's wrong". Lolz. You can't believe a thing that these CS people say.
I was then informed that my banking information was wrong. I explained that payments had been made successfully in the past, and that these were just being held back. CS rep confirmed payments had been made, but "must have been an error".
While listening to the load of halooey that the CS rep was reading from her script, I went to the payments section of the dashboard, selected the same account details from the drop down list, hit "accept" again, and the payments were disbursed the next day. So obviously no details were "incomplete or wrong" as they alluded do, someone or something just "turned off" my payments and I was never alerted to the fact that $1000+ was being held back for a month. I never would have been alerted.
Lesson learned: Do not believe a thing, NOT ONE THING, that the CS rep tells you on the phone...even if you're premier. These folks can only read off of a script and cannot provide any action or help for you.
