I am an Airbnb Host- How do I get Paid?

Airbnb will release a host’s payout about 24 hours after your guest’s scheduled check- in time. The payout method determines how long it takes for the funds to arrive in your account. After the payment is released, there will be some additional processing time for the money to reach you.

If your guest stays for 28 or more nights, payouts for that reservation are released monthly.

To check the status of your host payout, log into your Airbnb Account and click on your Transaction History. Once your payout has been sent by Airbnb, a “Payout” line item appears for that reservation.

However, if you have a minimum payout amount set, the payout will not be released until that minimum is met. If there are multiple listings with check ins on the same day, the funds going to the same payout method will be deposited as a single payout.

Payout options are as follows: ACH/Direct Deposit (up to 3 business day), bank transfer or international wire (3-7 business days), Paypal (within one business day), Western Union (1 business day, US PCT), Payoneer Prepaid Debit Card (within one business day).

Since many banking systems do not process transactions on weekends or holidays, if your payout is completed between Friday and Sunday, it may not process until the next week.

If there are any questions on processing time after your Airbnb transaction history shows a completed payout, Airbnb recommends contacting your payment processor directly.

Although receiving a payout is a great benefit to hosting on Airbnb, there are other benefits, too, like making new friends and sharing a resource with travelers!
