My latest payout has two downward "adjustments" for reservations from Oct/Nov 2017. One reduces my payout for the associated reservation to zero. Airbnb CS has been unable to explain this except to say that it's a correction for a previous error. Has this happened to anyone else?
Excellent news - well done, Lisa! Let's hope the cheque doesn't get "lost in the post"... 😉
Hosts - take note. It can be done!
Did you receive any sort of explanation/apology from Airbnb at all?
@Susan explanation/apology? Hahaha... :) No. Airbnb never communicated with me or as far as I know the court. The person who asked me for the W-9 was obviously in an accounting department and had no idea what the payout was even for. My guess is that their standard procedure is probably to ghost hosts they do this to and assume that most will never take legal action, and for the few that do if the amount is small their cheapest action is to spend no time on it and just pay up. Maybe if more hosts did take action their calculation on this would have to change.
And yes, it's not over until the check is deposited in my bank account.
