- Airbnb is a safe trading platform.…Member verifications are required,…and you can view the list of verifications…to help you make decisions about booking…with a particular guest.…If you're sharing space in a home,…yours or someone else's,…then additional layers of vetting…can be added if you feel they're needed.…Some hosts require photo identification…from guests upon check-in…as a security measure.…I've never really felt the need to do this…because I.D. verification occurs on Airbnb,…and in the event anything does happen,…they have a copy of the guest's identification,…and I've never had a reason to be concerned.…
Because I'm using Airbnb to process credit card payments,…I know that my money is secure,…and that the guests in my accomodation…are real people who are accountable.…After all, they've provided I.D.…and a credit card number…prior to staying with me.…Airbnb charges guests when the reservation is confirmed,…and I receive my Airbnb payment electronically…24 hours after my guest checks in.…Trust is established through good communication,…
