Well, this question was asked me this morning by a nice young lady working on the phone for Airbnb
As a Superhost I was calling direct line in France concerning how to post my new annoucement with two private rooms (bnb) but not the whole apartment. We can just write "one room" but we rent out in fact "two or more rooms" in an apartment that we share.
So, the nice lady after asking me my phone number, when I was born and my name, asked me suddenly : "How does Airbnb pay you?".
I was surprised and I immediately answered: "Well I don't have any payment problem, Airbnb comes every week home with its small case full of cash, that's fine!".
A funny question, a funny answer!
She started to laugh and couldn't stop and so did I.
She precised her question: "Ha ha ha...I meant: are you payed by PayPal?"
So, I went on: "Well, don't know his name, you say: PayPal? I don't know anything about him. But that's fine. It works. Though you know this year Airbnb will have to pay us online cause we shalll not be able to scape nor hide any refund taxes anymore. On the 1st of July in France, Airbnb has to send us what we have won exactly ".
