How payouts work for longer stays
Longer stays can provide a steady stream of income, particularly when a guest books for several weeks or months in a row. If you’re used to hosting shorter stays, it’s important to note that the timing of payments for longer stays – or reservations of more than 28 nights – differs from that of shorter stays.
For shorter stays, we send your payment, which we refer to as a payout, about 24 hours after a guest checks into your place. For longer stays, we send your payouts in instalments.
Here’s how the instalments work:
- Initial payout: We charge your guest for the first 30 nights of their stay when they book, and we release that payment to you 24 hours after their scheduled check-in time
- Additional payouts: Payments for subsequent nights are collected and released to you every month (28–31 days) following the initial payout for the rest of the reservation
“If the reservation is for 45 days, for instance, you get paid for the first 30 days right after the guest arrives and for the remaining 15 days a month after the guest checks in”, explains Superhost Deborah of Berkeley, California.
You can check the status of your payouts in your Transaction history.
Other payout details
Exactly how long it takes for the money to arrive in your account depends on the payout method you’ve chosen and the bank you use. New Hosts accepting their first reservation may experience a delay in payment while we verify your identity.
If you’ve set a minimum amount for payouts, we won’t release your funds until your earnings reach it. If you have multiple listings with check-ins on the same day, we usually send your funds as a single payout.
Whenever we send you funds, the line item for that payout moves from Upcoming Payouts to Completed Payouts in your Transaction History. You can compare this history to your bank account statement to make sure they match.
