How do I Create a new Airbnb listing for my SuperControl Property?

** Please note, setting up this integration enables Instant Booking on Airbnb **

This article provides instructions for creating a new Airbnb listing using property information in SuperControl. For linking a property in SuperControl with an existing Airbnb listing (a 'Rate & Availability only' connection), see this companion article

If you are new to AIrbnb, and wish to add the information directly into SuperControl (listing details, photos etc.) to create a new listing on their platform, please do not start adding property information to Airbnb directly. This is unnecessary and may create confusion. 

1. Go to Integrations > Channel manager > International > Airbnb.

Click "Connect with Airbnb".

2. Next to your chosen property click "Start".

3. Do not tick "Rates & Availability only". Ticking this will exclude any content information from SuperControl being sent, since this setting is only used when linking existing Airbnb listings to SuperControl.

4. Click on the property number on the left hand side and then you can fill in all the tabs with the information that is required. Anything with a red asterisk is essential and must be completed for the listing to be validated.


Description- The description can not include the following information, but descriptions should be unique and well written and the listing description should be more than 50 characters.

  • It should not include
  • Phone numbers, email address or URL's are not allowed within the host profile
  • No Internal Housing Codes

**Airbnb requires a minimum of 7 photographs in order to create a listing**

When you first start your set-up for the Airbnb integration you may not have any photos added to your property in SuperControl.

Step 1- To upload photos go to Properties > Edit > select "Photos" next to your selected property and Go:

Step 2- Click Upload photos and add in all relevant photos for this property. Please note you need to add at least seven photos; three of which should be at least 800x500px.

Step 3- Navigate back to your Airbnb listing page by going to Integration > Channel manager > International > Airbnb and click the property reference number to take you back to your listing set-up page:

Step 4- Click on the properties you wish to enable for Airbnb and Save.


**Airbnb requires a minimum of 5 Amenities in order to create a listing**

Adding Amenities

Step 1-Go to Properties> Amenities >Add/edit amenity categories to add your category names.

Step 2. When you have added your categories, you then add Amenities to each one. Go to Properties>Amenities>Add/edit amenities.

Step 3. Enter a name for your amenity.

Step 4. Assign the amenity to its relevant Category from the drop down menu.

Step 5. When you have set all your parameters, click “Add new”.

Step 6. Repeat the steps above for all the amenities you want to add.

To Allocate an Amenity to Airbnb

Step 1- To add all amenities into SuperControl click "add them now": This will now populate all of these amenities into SuperControl.

Step 2- Once completed you need to tick what amenities are associated with the property. Please note, these are labeled as "amenities" in SuperControl. At the top of the page on the grey menu bar select "Search variables"

Then Save at the bottom of the page.

Step 3- Navigate back to your Airbnb listing page by going to Integrations > Channel manager > International > Airbnb -click the property reference number; then go to the Amenities tab

5. Once your Airbnb default settings have been copied you are moved to the "Validated" section. If there is any data missing in SuperControl a warning message will appear. Click "Fix" to enter all missing information.

Example of error messaging:

Photos- Airbnb requires a minimum of 7 photos in order to create a listing. If you try and delete photos in SuperControl (via Properties > Edit > Photos) that falls below 7, you will be warned this is not possible. 

6. Once the information has been added click "Re-validate" - if all information has been added you can click "Create Listing".

7. You can then click create listing. If this is all correct, your listing is now being created on Airbnb. Please note this process can take a couple of minutes. 

8. Once the property has been "Approved" click "Publish". You will then be prompted to log in to Airbnb.

9. Once logged in to your Airbnb portal you can set your listing live. Here the sync page allows you to merge listings. If you are creating a new listing please select skip merging

10. You will then be able to create a new listing by selecting your listing and selecting 'Create Listing'

11. Once done your listing will show as connected. 


12. This short video illustrates the process within Airbnb.
