Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)
Q: Does the Calendar do “two way sync” or only one way?
A: Yes our calendar does TWO WAY SYNC! . Each calendar has a unique ical URL that you can copy and paste back into Airbnb, VRBO, etc for 2 way sync. So whenever you get a booking on your website, it will automatically upload back into Airbnb etc to show that it is unavailable.
Q: Can you take deposits or split billing? For example 50% upfront, remainder due 30 days before check-in?
A: Yes VR Calendar Sync can do this. In each calendar, you can set the deposit percentage to be charged upfront (either by Stripe, PayPal, or both) then set the number of days before check-in when the remainder is due.
Q: Does VR Calendar Sync send emails for me?
A: Yes we will email both the admin (you), another designated third party if you wish, and the guest who makes a reservation if you like. All emails can be edited.
Q: Whats the difference between “Plans” and the “Plugin”
A: We offer VR Calendar in two main “flavors”, one is a plan that is billed monthly (or free!, depending on features) and another one which is a wordpress plugin that is billed yearly.
They offer very similar features, except the wordpress plugin can only be used on wordpress and the plan version can be used on nearly any site, and is easier to setup. Also the plans version is hosted on our high bandwidth server, and will not have any conflicts with your existing wordpress theme or other plugins so it may be a good choice in some cases as well even for wordpress users.
We offer Free versions of both, so check them out and decide which one you like!
Please note, there is no communication between the Plans Dashboard, and the wordpress plugin, which can only be managed via the wordpress dashboard. For questions, just ask us!
Q: Can I take bookings and process payments with VR Calendar?
A: Yes! The Pro and Enterprise versions support Paypal standard payments, and Stripe integration! It is very easy to setup!
Q: Will the VR Calendar Sync widget work with a WordPress.com site?
A: WordPress.com doesn’t support widgets, but offer we a plugin instead that will work easily on any wordpress.com or privately hosted wordpress account!
