Airbnb future payments

How do I setup a booking to reflect that we will received payment after the Airbnb guest checks in? I have been setting up a credit card payment made elsewhere for the full amount paid by the guest (excluding taxes and airbnb fees) on the date the booking is confirmed. But then when I run my payments reports for year end reconciliation, I am showing a payment for next year that I haven't actually received.

But I do not want my system sending any emails reminding guests to pay.

And when I setup their rental agreement it showed the amount they had paid since Airbnb has already collected.

Any suggestions?

Sorry for the delay on this, I didn't notice it in the forum until now :-s

Can you set the payment date for the arrival date, or whenever you will get the payment?

The other option is to leave the payment out and record it later perhaps using the import from Airbnb Transaction History item in the Tools menu.

Any bookings created via calendar import will have payment/secdep reminders turned off automatically, so unless you enable the reminders no emails would go out to guests even if there is a balance due.

Happy Holidays!
