I already have listings on Airbnb

In this case, you already have listings on Airbnb which are being imported by RoomRaccoon for the connection. If you do not have any listings on Airbnb yet, proceed to Scenario 2.

At the top you will see 'Airbnb unmapped listings', these are the listings that have been imported from your Airbnb account. Please be aware that these are your pre-existing listings. In order to connect them you will have to follow three steps:

Map the listing 

  1. Choose the listing you want to start with and click on map

  2. Choose the room type

  3. Choose the base rate (in most cases 1P Airbnb, a surcharge per extra person can be added later)

  4. Click on the map listing


  1. Find this listing on the left side within the unfinished listings

  2. Click on connect/publish

Update listing on Airbnb

  1. The listing will then move to the right side to the finished listings

  2. Click on update listing on Airbnb to finish the set-up

  3. Choose the type of the connection

  4. Fill in all required information

  5. Click on update in the top right corner

There are two ways to manage Airbnb listings on RoomRaccoon. You can choose to just communicate rates and availability or manage the listing and the rates and availability. For more on how to manage listings, click here

I don't have Airbnb listings for my room types yet

If you have a room type in RoomRaccoon that is not yet listed on Airbnb you will be able to scroll down to 'not finished' and click on 'list on Airbnb'.

  1. Click on the list on Airbnb

We recommend you create a separate set of rates for Airbnb, which are connected to each other but not connected to the rates you use for other channels. Click here how to do that.

Unmapped Listing from Airbnb

If you have listings from Airbnb that you do not want to be mapped to RoomRaccoon there is a way for you to do this with the “not to be mapped” button. This means that we will not map these listings to RoomRaccoon so that you can manage those listings with Airbnb directly.
