New Airbnb Cleaning fee management

Please see below Information on the new Airbnb cleaning fee management feature that has gone live today.

About:

A new feature for Airbnb has been rolled out that provides the ability for properties to select any cleaning fee to send up to Airbnb.

How does it work?

Currently, Airbnb sends the default new stay cleaning fee set up for a specific room or if that is not set it will send the property new stay clean default.

Now, the team has added a dropdown to the housekeeping tab within the stock unit settings called "Airbnb Cleaning Fee". If this dropdown is set, ResBook will send this cleaning fee up to Airbnb. If it is not set, then it will revert to the previous logic. Therefore, any one that does not use this new dropdown, your Airbnb cleaning fee will not be affected at all.

This dropdown has all ResBook cleans available to select. Properties can even set up a clean with no category so it will not effect housekeeping at all.

Summary

ResBook will send Airbnb a cleaning fee for your listings if:

  1. The "Airbnb Cleaning Fee" dropdown is set within the housekeeping tab for the stock unit.
  2. If the above is not set, ResBook will send the default "New Stay" clean set within the housekeeping tab for the stock unit.
  3. If none of the above is set, ResBook will send the default "New Stay" clean for the property set under the main housekeeping tab, cleaning section.
  4. If none of the above is set, ResBook will not send a cleaning fee to Airbnb.

Any questions feel free to get in touch with our support team.
