Why am I able to include a photo in a message to my airbnb guest WHEN I'M ON THE APP but the website messaging system does NOT ALLOW pictures to be sent?
Another annoyance... why am I allowed to create "saved messages" for my overnight airbnb listing BUT I'm NOT ABLE to create saved messages for my airbnb experience?! I have to type everything out to every new booking! Yes, I am aware of the "welcome message" but that is different than a "saved message" that I can quickly send out to a guest myself.
Another problem... why doesn't airbnb experiences allow hosts the option of TURNING OFF INSTANT BOOK like hosts CAN DO for their airbnb overnight listing? We need a chance to vet our potential experience guests just like we do our overnight guests. Whether its an overnight guest or an experience guest... it's still COMPLETE STRANGERS coming to my HOME! I need to know a bit more about them, their intentions, their expectations and be able to message them BEFORE they are allowed to book.
There has to be a better, more seamless way for an airbnb host to toggle back and forth between their experience listing and its inbox to their overnight listing and its inbox. It's very confusing as it is now. Maybe make one simple inbox with a tab for experiences and a tab for overnight messages?
Why does airbnb take 0% of the fee for an experience from the guest and take the ENTIRE 20% FEE FROM THE HOST? That's very unfair. It makes people not even want to be experience hosts. Split it 50/50 between the guest and the host.
