I just had a potential guest request a 2 week booking which included him asking “Would you be happy to accept a direct payment due to the amount rather than paying by card?”
I feel for him (and everyone else for that matter) because 2 weeks comes up to a huge amount of money which would require super-duper-platinum-kind-of-cards to support.
In any case…
How should I respond? My gut tells me to tell him that offsite payments is against Airbnb terms.
What do I do regarding the “pre-approve” and “decline” buttons? Just leave them alone? Any ranking penalty for leaving them alone?
