Tips to help make your Marketplace a Success!
Art & Collectables
Art on the walls and collectables on your shelves can easily grab a guest’s attention. Having a variety of items that can be easily taken home is a great idea to add to your marketplace.
Food & Beverages
Everyone loves a snack! Stock up your fridge and kitchen with snacks that your guests will turn to when they get that craving. Food and beverages are a sure way to make extra income every time your rental is booked.
Guests tend to forget important items when packing for trips. Providing essential and useful items like toothbrushes, toothpaste, deodorant and shower gel is a great way to accommodate your guests.
Guests love taking home a piece of their vacation. Offering your guests souvenirs from your location is a great way to earn extra income.

When you add your property on sign-up, you can print as many of your own unique QR codes as you’d like or request your free welcome kit. Your free welcome kit includes your unique QR codes along with additional info on how to get started.

BnSellit is a free service for STR hosts. There is no monthly fee to use the platform and hosts receive 100% of the sale of items sold in their marketplace. When a guest makes a purchase we charge a small transaction fee.

You can post anything for sale in your marketplace! The most popular items to sell are living essentials, food and beverages, souvenirs, art and decor or anything your guests can take with them after their stay.
Our hosts earn the most from food and beverage items and forgotten essentials like toothpaste, sunscreen and shampoo.
Once you’ve displayed your QR code at your property, guests can scan it to access your marketplace and make a purchase using their credit card. You can display as many as you’d like or anywhere you have an item for sale.
It is important to place your QR code displays beside items that are for sale. A good idea is to place items that can be purchased on a tray, shelf or small table to make it easy for guests to find.
As with all short-term rentals, there is a level of trust afforded by the host to each and every guest. Hosts rely on this trust to avoid damage to the property or stolen items like kitchenware or pillows during every new guest’s stay. In addition to the insurance already in use at your property when offering your short-term rental which covers stolen or damaged property, our hosts are also covered for marketplace items up to $200 USD.
