How to be an Airbnb host
Create your listing
It’s free and easy to create a listing on Airbnb. Describe your space, how many guests you can accommodate, and add photos and details.
Our pricing tool can recommend competitive rates, but what you charge is always up to you.
Get to know guests before arrival by messaging them on our platform.
Most hosts clean the spaces guests can use, and provide essentials like clean sheets, towels, and toilet paper.
You can greet guests in person with a key or just send them a door code.
Airbnb’s secure payment system means you never have to deal with money directly.
Guests are charged before arrival, and you are paid automatically after check in, minus a 3% service fee.
You can be paid via PayPal, direct deposit, or international money wire, among other ways.
