I have accepted guests and their times have been blocked out on the calendar but I have no notification of deposits being paid on the reservation.
@Alan46 When a reservation is confimed / accepted by you, Airbnb charges the guest's payment method. Airbnb holds onto the money until approximately 24 hours after your stated check in time (or 3pm if you have designated "flexible"). At that point Airbnb will send you a message that they have released the funds. Depending on holidays and weekends, it may take 2-3 days for the funds to reach your payout account. For example for guests who checked in on Friday, I typically get the funds in my bank account on Tuesday.
Hope this helps!
