Vrbo does not allow listings to be published that do not comply with their requirements. For most of the requirements, Guesty will prevent you from publishing the listing in the first place, and display an error message.
See the list of common issues and how to handle them below.
Listing stuck in pending status
If a listing is still Pending 72 hours after being published, it may require additional verification. Check out the following instructions here on how to proceed.
Listing stuck in failed status
If a listing has Failed 72 hours after being published, it may require additional verification. Check out the following instructions here on how to proceed.
"Listing should have a valid address"
When publishing a listing from the drop-down, the address is automatically broken down into components (street, city, zip code, etc.) that populate the address fields in Guesty’s database.
However, sometimes the Google Maps address is missing one or more of those components, which triggers the error message to appear.
See the following format here before initiating request to update your listing’s address.
Auto payment issue
"You can't publish the listing because:"
To integrate to Vrbo you must set a Guesty auto payment rule.
To comply, go to the listing: Automation Auto Payments Set up a "rest of payment" or "at confirmation"."
