・Price Synchronization

AirHost price information will be synced to airbnb only after PMS sync starts. See the manual below for details.

8. Start PMS Sync and enable pricing & availability sync for airbnb

・Availability information before you start managing a property in AirHost

Availability information will not be imported and displayed in AirHost before you start managing the property in AirHost. Please click "Start Managing" button of the property when you are ready to start syncing.

・Synchrinize timing

It may take up to 30 minutes to see the latest airbnb information in AirHost because AirHost refreshes its data about once every 30 minutes. (Airbnb accesses AirHost to check availability when it creates a new reservation.)
