Step 1. Create an account on Airbnb
Go to Airbnb, select the "Sign up"and go through the account creation process. More information about account settings can be found here.

Step 2. Use the IdoBooking Exporter
If you have a listing set up in IdoBooking, with the automatic integration using the IdoBooking Exporter, you'll be able to upload a listing for a new or existing Airbnb account directly from your IdoBooking dashboard and publish it to the site.

All offers are switched to Instant Booking when connected via Channel Manager. It isn't possible to use the Reservation Request via the Channel Manager.
