Please first make sure you are logged it to the Airbnb account you want to connect.
: The XML connection has an extra monthly cost. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org to get more information.
IMPORTANT 2: Please note that co-hostel listings cannot be managed by the channel manager. The connected account has to be the main listing account.
IMPORTANT 3: If you have Instant Book disabled, it will be enabled automatically when connecting channel manager. You can disable it again after connecting channel manager.
IMPORTANT 4: Please note that when you enable the XML connection, Airbnb's simplified pricing policy will be activated.
This policy indicates that any property that manages its activity through software such as FrontDesk Master, eliminates the previous commission model (3% service commission for hosts and another, normally less than 14.2%, for travelers). and switch to their simplified pricing model where the commission is 15% (paid in full by the property) which helps you have more control over what you charge your guests.
Since Airbnb will deduct a higher service fee from your charges, you may want to change your prices through FrontDesk Master to continue earning the same.
Please note that the listings that have HOUSE as property type in the configuration do not support multiple inventory. What it means? It means that if you have 3 double rooms that you want to sell as one listing you won't be able to do that it this listing is set up as a HOUSE.
Check your listings before the connection.
You need to change the property type to another one. For example:
Now you can start connecting AirBnB XML:

Paste the copied ID into the ID field and click on AUTHORIZE.
You will be taken to AirBnB account where you will need to accept the Terms and Conditions.
