The general rule is to offer your guests items for sale that can either be used during their stay or can be taken with them when they leave.
Trash to Treasure
Unwanted items are great things to sell to your guests during their stay. Simply display them in your STR space and your guests can take them with them when they leave. No packaging, shipping or handling fees.
Cater to Your Audience
It is helpful to know what your average guests’ age and interests are before building up your marketplace. Cater to your audience by stocking up on items that will interest them.
Guests tend to forget important items at home when packing for trips. Providing essential and useful items, like toothbrushes, water bottles, sunscreen and sunglasses, is a great way to accommodate your guests.
Souvenirs are important components to a traveller’s experience. People like to be physically reminded of special moments, which makes adding souvenirs to your marketplace inventory a great way to earn extra income.
Location Specific Items
Location specific items can be anything that will be deemed useful within the surrounding nature of your property. For example, if your property is on a lake, renting out your kayaks and life jackets to your guests will be a great addition to your marketplace inventory.
