9.1Who can use the API interface?
Almost all clients can use the API. Airbnb Support can provide more information on Airbnb's policies and restrictions.
9.2Can I import an Airbnb listing into Beds24?
Yes. The process is explained above.
9.3What is the difference between API connection and iCal connection?
The main differences are the update speed and the data transferred. iCal updates can take up to 24 hours, making them unreliable. Changes via the API are applied within a minute.
The API interface can:
- create lists
- Send content and update content
- Send pictures
- Automatically send availability to Airbnb
- Send Beds24 prices to Airbnb
- Import reservations (including number of guests, price), changes and cancellations from Airbnb
- use messages
The iCal interface can only export inventory and import reservations for which Airbnb provides limited information (no guest name, no price, no email address), reservation changes, and reservation cancellations.
9.4I am already listed on Airbnb. i can connect it
Yes. You can connect an existing Airbnb account.
9.5Can I still use Ical?
Of course you can use iCal or the API, but not both for the same room (remember that iCal has delays and does not transmit prices or detailed reservation information).
9.6Can I accept orders?
Airbnb only allows instant bookings for API-connected listings. However, you can define which invitees can book and receive and import requests.
9.7Can I link more than one Airbnb account?
Yes. You can connect multiple Airbnb accounts.
9.8Can I send special prices to Airbnb?
Yes. This onetutorialexplains how to do it.
9.9If I have a room type with 6 units (ie 6 double rooms), do I need a list for each room?
Airbnb does not support types of housing.
9.10Will I receive notifications about new reservations or changes?
Airbnb will notify you of new reservations.
9.10.1Do guests receive confirmation?
The sender confirms the reservation with the guest. Beds24 does not send a confirmation message. If you want to send one too, you can set up an automated promotional email.
9.11Do I need to confirm reservations?=
no All listings managed through the API are enabled for instant booking, ie H. All bookings are confirmed. You can cancel reservations on the Airbnb extranet if necessary.

Yes. You can connect to multiple Airbnb host accounts.
9.16Can I send multiple languages?
9.17Can I connect bedrooms?
Airbnb does not support dormitories. We cannot say how many beds are available. If a bed is available, Airbnb will allow all beds in the dorm to be booked, which will cause overbooking. What you can do is create a room with a bed on Beds24 and submit it as a listing to Airbnb or merge it with an existing listing that has a bed. At Beds24, you can use virtual rooms so that the availability of these single beds depends on the availability of your residence.

File an action for possession or unlawful detainer.
It is important to note whether the Airbnb squatter is entitled to possession or not, the landlord has to show that there is no lease or that the lease has expired. This will prove that the tenant has no legal right to be staying there.
A simple way to spot most types of cameras is to look for the lens reflection. Turn off the lights and slowly scan the room with a flashlight or laser pointer, looking for bright reflections. Scan the room from multiple spots so you don't miss a camera pointed only at certain places.What is the 14 day rule for Airbnb? ›
