Join Christopher Matthew Spencer for an in-depth discussion in this video Banking setup and getting paid, part of Making Money with Airbnb.
- Now, let's discuss getting paid.…To use Airbnb, you'll be required to accept…payments through their system.…This means that guests will pay Airbnb, who holds the money,…and then you'll be paid 24 hours after the guest checks in.…This ensures that everyone gets what's expected,…and protects both the host and guest.…You'll need a bank account to receive the funds…which are paid electronically.…If you manage multiple accommodations,…you can even set up multiple bank accounts,…so that you can manage each space separately.…
Airbnb also offers PayPal, but the PayPal fee…will cost you almost 3%, or you can use a…Payoneer prepaid debit MasterCard to spend your funds.…While PayPal seems convenient,…and I even teach a Lynda.com course on it,…I'm only covering bank accounts in this course…because it means you'll earn more,…and that's what I recommend.…The debit card isn't ideal for someone running…an Airbnb business, because you can't write checks…to pay for your Airbnb expenses,…and most housekeepers want cash or checks.…
