Connecting to Airbnb through software

Airbnb is home to a variety of hosts, including hospitality businesses sharing their professionally-managed properties. Many use existing software to manage their listings. To help these hosts connect more easily, and reach a global travel community, we’ve developed partnerships with a network of leading software providers.


Connecting through existing software helps hosts and teams keep their workflows in place, while taking advantage of our unique platform features. Hosts have the choice of either managing listing content through their software provider or on Airbnb directly with our limited sync functionality. Limiting what syncs through the software lets connected hosts customize their content on Airbnb. To learn more about this feature, read our help article here.

To make the most out of listing on Airbnb, we encourage software-connected hosts to fill out listing details completely. This helps with guest engagement from the start and is one of the tips we recommend the most.


In addition to being able to create detailed descriptions, hosts with multiple listings get a pro marketing page, where they can promote their properties to guests from one place. Hosts can also upload profile images, a cover photo, and write a short description about their business. 

We work with a global network of property management software providers and channel managers. We also have a set of Preferred Software Partners, who support the full suite of Airbnb functionality, while meeting or exceeding technical performance benchmarks. See the full list here.
