How do I use international wire transfer to receive payouts?
International wire transfer is available as an Airbnb payout method. To find out if it's available to you, check out your options when you add a payout method. If international wire transfer is listed for your selected country or region, you'll be able to connect your account as a payout method.
An international wire (or international wire transfer) is an electronic payment service for transferring funds. A wire transfer is considered international when Airbnb sends funds in a currency different from your local currency from a bank outside your country.
Your bank may charge a fee to receive a foreign currency. If the funds are transferred using an intermediate bank, the intermediate bank may also deduct fees from the payout. Airbnb can't inform you on how much you'll be charged to receive an international wire. In addition, Airbnb is not responsible for any fees deducted during the international wire, by your bank, or by the intermediary bank.
If you're a host and want to receive your payouts through international wire, please enter your local banking information in your payout preferences, even if your bank works with a specific intermediary bank. Airbnb's bank will take care of processing the international wire without the intermediary bank information.
Never request or make a reservation payment outside of Airbnb. If someone asks for payment to be taken off of Airbnb 's secure, on-site system, report it to us—just look for the flag icon in your message thread. Learn more.
For listings located in mainland China
According to Chinese laws, income from homes listed in mainland China may only be collected through a CNY (Chinese yuan) account located in China. You may choose to receive your payout using Alipay or your bank card, as long as it's issued by a bank located in China. If you don't set up a payout method with a CNY account in China, you won't be able to collect money for homes listed in mainland China. Find out how to set up your payout method.
