Hello, I just had a few consecutive cancelations which really messed up our calendars and after Airbnb revisiting their strict to make it a lot less strict, I realized that as a host I am not protected enough.
Airbnb says that for "software connected hosts" the (super) stricter policies are available. Would activating this option start shifting the service fee to me as a host (paying the 15% or whatever it is, instead of the regular 3%), or is this unrelated?
When you are API connected, the cancellation policy dropdown in the Settings> API> Airbnb> Change includes the options Super Strict 30 & 60. There is no connection to the one fee 15% pricing model when selecting super strict API cancellation policies.
Thank you Adria!
Just to triple check, there's nothing that gets affected by choosing a strict cancelation policy, other than aspects related to such policy?
i use super strict myself, no other affects are associated with that selection. Never hurts to check!
Ordinarily no, though I believe there can be if your account is not based in North America.
Here's a bit more information:
