I am all set with API's for all other main platforms but not with Airbnb. Is there any plan to do a auto channel bridge for Airbnb since there is currently no API for it?

Yes there is (a plan to auto/background it) but that's in the future because it's fairly complicated. Remember that Channel Bridge runs as a browser extension locally (on your device) so it would mean having a running background process on thousand of users' devices at the same time, each of which could get out of whack.

FYI - last month we were finally approved for Airbnb API integration, and we are currently waist deep working on it. It is a full (2 way) integration just like we have for HomeAway. We are looking to test beta users on it probably end of Q3 or beginning of Q4.

Any potential problems beta testing? Wouldn't mind, unless it might impact my bookings.

The integration will be fully functional by the time we open up the beta, but as in any beta there is a higher possibility of bugs we haven't found yet.

Will mark you down on the beta list to contact when that time comes.

I would like to be a beta tester too, if possible.

I just sent in a support question for this.

I could even use this for every booking. I use channel bridge after every booking (and airbnb is the worst since it only sends dates to owner rez)

Please-Please create this feature.. for Christmas :)

Thank you

It isn't looking optimistic for being able to automate Channel Bridge, because of increasing security restrictions and the way it has to operate as a browser plugin. While theoretically technically feasible, automating it would be not as stable and reliable as it would need to be to not annoy the heck out of everybody.

But the good news is, for Airbnb at least the API is out of beta and has no minimum-property restrictions. We recommend that every OwnerRez user who lists with AIrbnb to switch over to using the API right away, unless there is a specific reason why this won't work with your business workflow.
