I have several request from travellers especially fellow citizens looking for 3 weeks to a month stay requesting to pay directly to my bank avcount to avoid airbnb charge. Does anyone get that? Its so annoying. They often gave me their mobile numbers and indicate to bypass airbnb. 3 comments Follow Like

Reply Like marisa marisa2 days ago If you go to airbnb's help center and search for this topic, you ll find all the reccomended answers: don't communicate or accept money outside ABB, it nullifies your terms w ABB for that booking, and you are on your own resolving any disputes that arise. Plus, total red flag that someone traveling for that long is that worried about the modest fees ABB charges. They are minimal compared to the cost of overall travel. I saw you have been also getting requests from guests to see your place before booking. All those requests are red flags. You have another full day before this forum closes to scroll down the many posts and see other situations that come up and what hosts have done to solve them. Good luck!
