How to import Airbnb listings using the Google Chrome extension
How to import Airbnb listings using the Google Chrome extension
First things first, if you use a PMS (Property Management System) or a Channel Manager, do note that you'll need to integrate PriceLabs with your PMS, and NOT directly with Airbnb/VRBO. When using a PMS, the flow of data goes from PriceLabs => PMS => Airbnb/VRBO/other channels.
PriceLabs will send rates and minimum stay requirements, along with check-in restrictions, to Airbnb listings for the next 540 days (see our article hereon extending your pricing calendar beyond that point).
You can connect as either a host or a co-host but a listing can only be managed from one PriceLabs account. You can send a request to email@example.com you'd like to move a listing to another PriceLabs account.
Weekly and monthly discounts, check-out restrictions, and maximum stay length are NOT set by PriceLabs for Airbnb listings, they must be managed through Airbnb.
Creating an Airbnb Password
If you usually log in to Airbnb using your Phone Number, Facebook, Google, or Apple account, you'll need to create an Airbnb password to integrate your account with PriceLabs. For the full instructions, you can check our guide here.
If you used a PMS in the past, make sure it is no longer connected to your Airbnb account. You can check this on Airbnb, in Account > Privacy & sharing > Services. Do note that if you are integrating PriceLabs with your Airbnb account, you should remove the connection between Airbnb and the PMS you previously used. If you are still using a PMS, you should connect PriceLabs with your PMS, and NOT directly with Airbnb, otherwise, you might run into issues.
Importing Airbnb listings into PriceLabs
If you are new PriceLabs customer looking to connect your Airbnb listings to PriceLabs or an existing customer who has recently changed their Airbnb password - the steps below will help you connect PriceLabs to Airbnb.
Before getting started make sure the listings you are trying to connect are LIVE and bookable on Airbnb. Listings that are snoozed, have no availability, or have just been created can not be imported into PriceLabs.
To connect your Airbnb to PriceLabs, you will have to use our extension which only works for all chromium based browsers - Chrome, Microsoft Edge, Brave etc. This extension does not work on Safari or mobile browsers. If you don't have access to any computer or laptop to follow this process, please send a request at firstname.lastname@example.org remote assistance.
(Optional) If you have installed the PriceLabs extension before, uninstall it first. If you're connecting your Airbnb for the first time, skip to step #2.
From the Welcome page or Review Prices page, click on the "Add your listings" or "Add/Reconnect Listings" button, select "Airbnb/Vrbo/Houfy" and search for Airbnb from the dropdown. Then click "Install Chrome Extension". (You can also download the extension here.)
Pin the PriceLabs extension for easy access! Click the "puzzle" icon on the top-right corner of the screen. Pin the extension for easy access in future.
Open the PriceLabs extension and enter your Airbnb credentials and click "Connect My Account". Important Notes: - Some users may need to verify their Airbnb access before importing to PriceLabs. In this case, you will see a screen with "Verify Account" and "Continue" button. Click the "Verify" button, a new tab will open and Airbnb will authenticate your access. Once that page completely loads, open the extension again and click "Continue". Follow the prompts to receive a code for verifying your Airbnb connection. - If you end up in a loop, click "Logout of Airbnb Account" (from the extension) and log out your account from Airbnb website as well. Then, on the Airbnb website, log in again and make sure to choose the "Continue with Email" option. If you're able to successfully log in to your account using your email and password, try to log in again on the PriceLabs extension. Otherwise, you may have to update your password.
Once your Airbnb account is verified, click "Take me to PriceLabs", open the extension again from the PriceLabs dashboard and click "Import to PriceLabs"
It'll take a few seconds to a few minutes (depending on the number of listings you are adding), but after that you'll see a success check mark on the app and the PriceLabs page behind will refresh.
You should now see your Airbnb listings on your PriceLabs dashboard! Check out our Getting Started Guide or join one of our Intro to PriceLabs Live Training Sessions to get a look at everything the system can do. Once you're satisfied with your rates you can turn the Sync Prices on and wait for our regular nightly sync or use the "Sync Now" button to sync prices immediately.
To add new Airbnb listings to your PriceLabs account, kindly follow the steps mentioned above. Do note that it can take up to 24 hours for a new listing to be added to Airbnb's API. Please wait 24 hours after creating a new listing before attempting to import it into PriceLabs. If you have trouble importing a new listing after that 24-hour period, please submit a support ticket.
