Update your Airbnb API synchronization

As of Thursday, August 9th Airbnb now requires all API connected listings to choose a specific synchronization setting. You must choose either to manage your rates and availability only in Tokeet, or manage everything including your listing details in Tokeet. If you haven’t already done so, you must update your synchronization settings in Tokeet. Linked below is a video which demonstrates updating your synchronization settings.

Please note that your listings must also meet the Airbnb listing quality guidelines when connecting via a channel manager. The Airbnb API rejects listings connections which do not meet the following minimum content requirements.

- Listing title must be at least 8 characters long.
- Listing description must be at least 50 characters.
- At least 7 photos, including 3 with high-resolution (800x500 pixels).
- Listing must have at least 5 amenities.

Finally, all Airbnb API listings are now set to Instant Book by default. This setting cannot be changed and is mandated by Airbnb. Tokeet has no control over this setting.

We will be following up with more details and updates regarding the new Airbnb API.

Thanks for being a Tokeet user.
