How do I get paid for bookings?

FabStayz does not process payment nor take a percentage of bookings.

On FabStayz beta v1.0 you choose how you get paid; your FabListing can direct the bookings to your Airbnb, Vrbo or HomeAway account OR utilize Houfy’s direct booking features where you utilize your own Stripe or Square account.

The choice is yours!

How do I know if a booking came from FabStayz?

During FabStayz beta v1.0 there is a loophole we’re addressing, you could receive a booking from a member of the FabStayz Community and not even know it!

We encourage LGBTQ travelers and anyone else utilizing the FabStayz platform to message their host letting them know they discovered your listing on FabStayz. However, this not happening 100% of the time.

The FabTech Team is working on additional solutions.

What is the cost after the trial?

We’re super excited that our FabStayz commitment to providing welcoming, inclusive spaces has piqued your interest.

While FabStayz.com is live for bookings and adding new listings, we are currently in our beta v1.0 release. At this time we are offering a 6 month trial for our early adopter FabHosts while we continually evaluate and improve the platform experience with feedback from the FabCommunity.

Our goal is to make FabStayz the premiere LGBT+Ally listing and booking site and to do so at a great value to hosts with a fair pricing structure for the varied types of accommodations from home shares to luxury vacation rentals.

The insights gained over the next several months will help solidify the ideal pricing model. Of course we will notify hosts well in advance of the trial expiration so that you can make an informed decision on continuing with FabStayz as a paid subscriber.

We invite you to join our FabCommunity featuring your listing(s). Be on the look out for monthly updates of all the exciting developments at FabStayz.
