I prefer funds wired straight to my bank, I've nevre had a problem and my bank doesnt charge me anything. Plus all the fund are FDIC insured. Much better deal the paypal in my opinion. Theres no security issue. You funds tr wired to you basn asnd depending on the back they sre svsilsble quicly.
I just received my first "payout" from Airbnb. It was the bank transfer method mentioned in previous replies. My bank grabbed a $15 wire transfer "fee". Since no one mentioned this in their replies to Colleen, is no one else paying this fee through their bank? I checked local US-based banks (my US-dollar bank account is based in Canada) and even if I open a bank account locally here in Florida, I see they would grab the 15 bucks too. Is this just a cost of doing business?
I chose PayPal becaue my bank does charge a $15 incoming wire fee. Does anyone know if there is a PayPal fee for their transfer of Airbnb funds to a personal checking or savings account.
@Mayrav0 The methods of payment that the guest is offered have to do with what payment methods are accepted in their home country. When they set up their account, they receive that info from Airbnb. It has nothing to do with the host.
thanks Sarah- so if in my country there are two options: paypal in USD or bank transfer -then I have to choose 1 of the two OR can I enable both options for guests?
@Mayrav0 No. You are confused. Your payout method (the way you will receive the funds) has nothing to do with how the guests will pay.
Airbnb charges the guests according to the payment methods available to them in their country. This has nothing to do with you. Airbnb holds the funds until 24 hours after a guest checks in. Then Airbnb will pay you according to the payout preference you have chosen.
How the guest pays has nothing to do with how you get paid.
And as far as I'm aware, you can only choose one payout preference.
Hi everyone, can you tell me if you have used western union as a payout method? Because there is written that by western they charge on;y 10dollars and what i use (international wire) they take 25dollars all the time, does not matter how much money I have to be recieved
