When you do the mapping of an Airbnb property, you can choose which information Rentals United will send to Airbnb by choosing either the Full Sync or the Limited Sync.
What we send on Full Sync: everything, all property information is sent from Rentals United.
What we send on Limited Sync: we send price (fees included), availability, minimum stay and security deposit.
When you are using Full Sync, everything is sent from Rentals United. Bear in mind that if you are mapping existing Airbnb listings, Full Sync will overwrite the content that you already had on Airbnb.
Using Limited Sync can have the following advantages:
- Amenities: there are more than 100 different amenities available on Airbnb. From Rentals United we are able to send only these amenities:
Carbon monoxide detectors
Coffee Maker in Room
Cookware & Kitchen Utensils
En suite bathroom
Free Wireless Internet
Fridge / Freezer
Queen size bed
In this case, the objective with Airbnb is to have as many amenities as possible, as this is the main part of their channel strategy, which is to be able to search by amenities.
- Property description: there are multiple description fields in Airbnb to allow you to have the most accurate description and to divide it by type of information.
If the property is connected in Full Sync, we have one description box and we will send this entire box directly to Airbnbb
- Property type: using Limited Sync you will be able to choose from more type of properties than the ones in Rentals United.
