1. Go to What to Sync.
A. There are two different ways to manage your Airbnb listings: “sync everything” or “limited sync.” i. “Sync everything” means you will manage content, rates and availability from your channel manager.
B. “Limited Sync” means you will only manage rates and availability from your channel manager. With this option, you will be able to manage content within your Airbnb account and not have it overridden by your property management system. After you make this choice, you will be able to adjust the choice at a later date. The content changes you make on Airbnb will not be pushed back to your property management system.
Your Sync Options
What does this sync do?
Anything else I should know?
Listing details, booking settings, pricing, availability, messages, and reservations will all be managed via your PMS.
You can view these things on the Airbnb website but you will only be able to edit them using your PMS.
If you have chosen to “Sync everything” and you map your existing PMS listing to an existing Airbnb listing, the listing descriptions, photos, and amenities of the Airbnb listing will be replaced with the information from your PMS. Your Airbnb reviews and ratings will remain.
Only your pricing, availability, messages, and reservations will be managed via your PMS. Your listing details and booking settings will be managed via the Airbnb website.
This option is great if you want to customize your listings description, photos, or booking settings to appeal to Airbnb guests.
If you have chosen to “Limited sync” and you map your existing PMS listing to an existing Airbnb listing the listing descriptions, photos, and amenities of the Airbnb listing will remain. Your Airbnb reviews and ratings will also remain.
2. Last but not least, go to the Sync to column. There are two ways to sync listings to Airbnb. Under the “Sync to” section you can,
