Performance Dashboard

With the performance dashboard, you’re able to track and compare metrics such as market averages and listing performance across multiple listings over time. This makes identifying successful strategies easier than ever before.

  • Occupancy rate: compare across listings and make adjustments to boost bookings
  • Average nightly rate: compare your nightly rate to the market average to make your pricing more competitive
  • Visibility: check which listings are getting the most views to understand what guests are looking for

Cleaning Guidelines

As the pandemic continues, it’s important that we all do our part to help protect one another from COVID-19. With this in mind, we’re launching safety practices that everyone in the Airbnb community must follow. For hosts, this means wearing a mask, practicing social distancing, and following Airbnb’s 5-step enhanced cleaning process.

On our end, we’ll give you access to tools and resources you'll need to uphold these standards, which you can find in the cleaning section of your Performance tab.

Simplified Pricing

Historically, Airbnb has had a single fee structure for all hosts, in which a service fee is charged to both the host (3%) and the guest (under 14.2% in most cases). Last year, based on feedback from many professional hosts, we launched a new fee option for software-connected hosts to remove the guest service fee and provide hosts with more control over their rates. This fee structure is known as Simplified Pricing.

Since December 7th 2020, Simplified Pricing (15% host fee) is the only available fee structure to all software-connected hosts on Airbnb globally (excludes US, Canada, Mexico, Uruguay, The Bahamas, Argentina and Taiwan).
