Scenario 1: I already have listings on Airbnb
In this case, you already have listings on Airbnb which are being imported by RoomRaccoon for the connection. If you do not have any listings on Airbnb yet, proceed to Scenario 2.

At the top you will see 'Airbnb unmapped listings', these are the listings which have been imported from your Airbnb account. Please be aware that these are your pre-existing listings. In order to connect them you will have to follow three steps:

choose the listing you want to start with and click on map
choose the room type
choose the base rate (in most cases 1P Airbnb, a surcharge per extra person can be added later)
click on map listing

you will now find this listing on the left side within the unfinished listings
click on connect/publish

Update listing on Airbnb
the listing will then move to the right side to the finished listings
click on update listing on Airbnb to finish the set up
choose the type of the connection
R&A only: prices, availability restrictions
Listing & R&A: content such as pictures, descriptions, address details etc, rates & availability, restrictions
fill in all required information
click on update in the top right corner

Scenario 2: I don't have Airbnb listings for my room types yet
If you have a room type in RoomRaccoon that is not yet listed on Airbnb you will be able to scroll down to 'not finished' and click on 'list on Airbnb'.

click on list on Airbnb
fill in the required information
update listing on Airbnb

Manage your Airbnb listings & prices from RoomRaccoon
Click on 'Update listing on Airbnb'
You will now see all of the information that has been imported from Airbnb.
Go to 'pricing' at the bottom left of the page, fill in the amount of people that are included in the base rate and add the surcharge per extra guest.

We recommend you to create a separate set of rates for Airbnb, which are connected to each other, but not connected to the rates you use for other channels. Learn here how to do that.

Scope of the connection - The difference between "R&A only" and "Listing and R&A"
R&A only: Your prices, restrictions and availability will be communicated. We advise to use this option when you already have existing Airbnb listings.
Listing and R&A: Prices, restrictions and availability will also be communicated. However, also content such as pictures, descriptions, address details etc. are then managed from within RoomRaccoon. When you use this option, your content cannot be altered in Airbnb anymore.

Good to know
Do I have to connect all of my listings on RoomRaccoon? No, you need only map the listings you would like to connect to RoomRaccoon.
I would like to manage only my rates through RoomRaccoon, can I do so? Yes, you can. Click on 'update listing' once the page has loaded at the top you can choose what you want to manage.
I can no longer edit my listing in Airbnb - How is that possible? This means that you manage the entire listing from RoomRaccoon. You can update your listing from within RoomRaccoon and we will forward it to Airbnb!
For Airbnb Plus listings, only rates & availability can be communicated.
Airbnb reservations are imported in RoomRaccoon showing Airbnb as the booker and no booking confirmation will be sent.
