Never pay for a reservation outside Airbnb's secure, on-site payment system. If a host or guest asks to pay for a reservation outside our on-site payment system, report the message by clicking in the message thread with that person.
If you're a host, Airbnb can send you your payouts through Western Union. This payout method may not be available to all hosts, depending on the country in which the account is based. You can see if Western Union is available to you as a payout method by going to Account > Payout Preferences. Then click on the Add Payout Method button. After entering your address, you'll see a list of your payout and currency options.
When you choose Western Union as your payout method, you’ll need to enter your name as it appears on your official government ID, including your first, middle, and last names. Your official ID will need to match your account information when you collect your payout.
About 1 to 2 days after your reservation begins, you'll receive a unique confirmation number (called an MTCN) via email. You need this number to pick up your money transfer from a Western Union Quick Cash agent location. Find the closest agent location in your area: www.payment-solutions.com/agent.asp
