This is my first time hosting on Airbnb. It's for a time share in Cabo Mexico. The reservation showed confirmed on Airbnb. I have to pay the resort for the reservation. How can I be sure that Airbnb actually has the funds from the traveler? I found that Airbnb won't release the funds until after they check in, which isn't for over 2 months. Not great since I have to pay now to secure the reservation with the resort... thanks!
It's true that hosts only receive payout a few days after their guests' check-in days. And for the first booking - after 30 days. It's a risky business because guests can always cancel their stays.
@Jonathan350 ABB certainly has the money or at least some of it... You won't know if you'll receive $ until the day after the guest checks in and even then hosts tell stories of reservations being cancelled last minute or guests receiving refunds after a stay because of complaints.
I would NEVER use ABB for a timeshare, way too risky
