Users can import property data from Airbnb or HomeAway/VRBO to avoid building new properties in MyVR. This also pulls in any existing reservations from either of those channels.
NOTE: If your property is listed on both Airbnb and HomeAway/VRBO, you'll want to import from Airbnb first. We only need one version of each property, so if all the properties and relevant data are imported from Airbnb, you do not need to import them from HomeAway at all.
Once the properties are created, users can install any of the channel apps, and create a listing for those channels.
To import property data from Airbnb or HomeAway/VRBO:
Step 1: Go to Properties > Properties
Step 2: On the property page, go to the dropdown arrow in the right-hand corner and select "Import from Channel"
Step 3: Click Airbnb or HomeAway/VRBO, put in your account's login credentials (Remember to click Airbnb first if you are on there).
Step 4: Wait for the property details to load (30+ seconds)
Step 5: Choose to import all properties or just individual ones
Step 6: Click Import Selected. New properties will show on the property page. Users will need to activate the properties to be able to integrate them.
(Possible Next Step) If you have other properties on Airbnb that were not pulled into HomeAway
Step 7: repeat steps 2-6 above, only selecting properties to import that were not already pulled into Airbnb.
(Possible Next Step) If all of your properties were pulled in from Airbnb, and the same properties are listed on HomeAway too
Step 8. you can repeat steps 1-3 above only. MyVR only needs you to log into your HomeAway account to be able to access reservations. You do not need to pull in properties if they were already pulled in from Airbnb.
Step 9. Contact Support after step 3 to pull in the properties once you added your credentials into HomeAway.
