I'm a host. Can Airbnb send my payouts by international wire transfer?

Never pay for your reservation outside of Airbnb. If someone asks you to pay for a reservation outside our on-site payment system, report it to us—just look for the flag icon in your message thread. Learn more.


If you're a host, Airbnb can send you your payouts through international wire transfer. 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 via 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.
