Import a listing from Airbnb
This page is about the menu  (SETTINGS) CHANNEL MANAGER > AIRBNB and explains how to import a listing.

You can import content from Airbnb to automatically create a property in Beds24 or a room in a property which already exists.

Step 1: Connect to an Airbnb Account

To initiate the connection click on the "Connect to Airbnb" button.

You will then see this screen:

Log into the Airbnb account you want to connect.

The final authorization page looks like this:

Once you are connected the "Connect to Airbnb" button is replaced with a "View Listings in Account" button and you will see a line like this

showing the Airbnb account number you are connected to.

Step 2: View your listings

  • Click on "View all listings"
  • Click on the "Import" button
  • Select if you want to create a new property with a room or add a room to a property you already have in Beds24. After you have done this you will see the new property/room in SETTINGS->PROPERTIES->ROOMS.

Step 3: Check what imported

Fees, bathroom and bedroom configurations are not imported.

Step 4: Check what will be exported

  • Go to SETTINGS->CHANNEL MANAGER->AIRBNB XML ->VIEW CONTENT to check what was imported from Airbnb.
  • Click on "View Actual Data" to check the prices an rules which will be exported to Airbnb.

Step 5: Activate the synchronisation

1. Tick the check box for "Enable" and SAVE.

2. Click on the "Connect" button next to the listing you want to connect the room to. If you do not see a "Connect" button click on "Fix content errors". For a limited sync you need at least a "Rack Rate". For a full sync you need to fix all errors you see highlighted in red.

3. Choose the "Sync Type"

a) "Full Sync" means your existing listings descriptive content will be overridden by the descriptive content in Beds24 and can no longer be edited in Airbnb. If you want a full sync your listing needs to meet Airbnbs requirements. If you see a red button "Fix Content Errors" your listing does not meet Airbnbs requirements. Click on the button. Any settings which do not meet Airbnbs requirements are highlighted on red. Click on the links to go to the settings where you can fix the problems.

Airbnb does not allow "Plus" listings to use full sync. If you have "Plus" listings please use "Limited Sync".

b)"Limited Sync" means your content will remain in your Airbnb listing and only the calendar and prices are updated.

Step 6: Import bookings from Airbnb

Click on "Import existing bookings" to import the bookings you already have in Airbnb. Bookings previously imported via the Airbnb iCal connection will not import. We recommend you delete them before you press the button.
