How are cleaning fees added?
Hosts can add or edit a cleaning fee for their listing from Your Listings > Manage Listing > Pricing, in the Additional Charges section.
After it's saved, the cleaning fee is added to each reservation booked at the listing from that moment on.
Cleaning fees help hosts account for any extra expense they have getting their listing nice and tidy before guests arrive or after guests depart. It is a one-time fee, not a nightly fee. For example, if a listing has a cleaning fee of $25, the guest does not pay $25 per night, they pay $25 regardless of how many nights in the reservation.
In the search results, guests see a rate inclusive of any cleaning fee, to get a better idea of the total cost of the listing. This is calculated by dividing the cleaning fee by the number of nights in the reservation, then adding that number to the nightly rate. Before they submit a reservation request, guests see the nightly rate and the cleaning fee listed separately in the price breakdown.
The cleaning fee is part of the reservation total and is not returned to guests at the end of the reservation. Because the cleaning fee is included in the total guest payment and host payout, service fees apply.
Cleaning fees are not automatically included when making a Special Offer, which should be an all-inclusive price.
