Airbnb payout the day after you host an experience to the payout method you have selected in the Payout Method section. The date that you’ll get the funds will depend on your financial institution and whether the payout is released on a weekend or bank holiday.

Magpie Opinion

Pros: Airbnb is a globally recognized and trusted brand. They have access to millions of customers who book accommodation through their site. Commission (at 20%) is relatively low.

Cons: You have no control over the cancellation policy and may be liable to pay the commission even if you cancel the tour and therefore receive no payout for it. You cannot host non airbnb guests along with your regular guests, they must be on a unique experience or unique departure.
