PayPal is available in select countries for guests booking from the desktop version of Airbnb. Click Request to Book to see what methods are available to you. Payment methods and currency options differ depending on the country in which your payment account is located.
When you submit a reservation request and choose to use PayPal, you will be redirected to the PayPal website. You’ll need to log in to PayPal to make your payment.
Once your payment for the full amount of the reservation is authorized, the reservation request is sent to the host, who will have up to 24 hours to reply.
If your request is retracted, declined, or expires, the authorization on your PayPal account is voided automatically and no charge is made.
If your request is accepted, the authorization on your PayPal account is processed as payment and you’ll be able to access your Airbnb billing receipt and trip itinerary.
