Join Christopher Matthew Spencer for an in-depth discussion in this video Getting registered, part of Making Money with VRBO.
- We're going to begin covering the online aspects of your VRBO rental business, and first, you'll need to get registered. Let's head over to the VRBO website and from here, you can click on the link to List your Property. You can sign up for an annual subscription, or, a pay-per-booking plan, which allows you to pay as you go. Since you're just getting started, choose the second option, which is pay-per-booking, by clicking here. Choose pay-per-booking. You can always upgrade to an annual subscription at a later time, as you see the income from VRBO and decide if this is a business that you'd like to continue.
From here, enter your name, email address, and phone number. This is part of what makes VRBO a safe trading platform. People must be real and verifiable. Go ahead and check the box that says I accept the Terms and Conditions, and then click Next. From here, enter your billing address. And then click Next.
Now enter a password that's easy for you to remember, and hard for someone else to guess. Then complete the security questions, which allow you to recover forgotten passwords, or prove your identity to VRBO staff when asked. When you're done entering the answers to the security questions, click Next. Before you start entering information about your accommodation, we'll pause here so that we can do some exploration and see what other hosts are doing on VRBO.
