    New hosts often ask, “How do I get paid?” Airbnb makes it easy to set up your preferences to receive payments—or what we refer to as payouts—in a few simple steps. Here’s how it works:

    Choose how you’ll get paid

    As a host, you can choose from many ways to get paid on Airbnb. Some options Airbnb offers include bank transfers or ACH, PayPal, Payoneer Prepaid Debit Cards, and Western Union.

    You can see what types of payout methods are available to you and add or edit your payout method by going to Payments & Payouts. Once you add a payout method, it will need to be verified before you can receive payouts.

    How much you’ll get paid

    For each reservation, you typically receive your nightly rate minus any taxes and fees, like Airbnb’s host service fee. Keep in mind that your payout may also be impacted by a value-added tax (VAT) or other taxes in applicable regions.

    When you’ll get paid

    The money you earn by hosting will typically be sent to you 24 hours after your guest checks in. When you host a longer stay (28 nights or more), Airbnb will generally send earnings in monthly installments, starting 24 hours after your guest arrives. 
    Exactly when the funds arrive in your account depends on the payout method you’ve selected. For example, money usually arrives in your account within 7 business days for bank transfers, and within 1 business day for PayPal and Payoneer cards—though exact timing depends on where your account is located. You can check the status of your payouts any time in your Transaction History.
