Airbnb 2-way API Sync
If you've ever wanted to make changes to your Airbnb listing while connected to Tokeet but couldn't then our new 2-way API sync will come in handy.
Now, you can update content & pricing directly on Airbnb, which will instantly be synced to Tokeet as well as the original sync direction from Tokeet to Airbnb.
2-way sync can be set up for your Booking Settings, Price Settings and Availability Rules.
To set your 2-way sync preferences, navigate to Channels > Airbnb on the left panel > Settings > 2-way Sync.
Apart from being able to make changed directly on Airbnb's website and app, hosts will be able to take advantage of new Airbnb features as they're made available, even before Tokeet is updated to include those settings/features.
Airbnb fields with recent changes will have a timestamp that says if the change was made in Airbnb or via Tokeet.
A hosting log is available for hosts to view changes made over longer periods.
More information on the areas that can be updated:
