The Airbnb publishing and importing process can take up to 24 hours, and once you've successfully published a listing, the status will change to "Connected".

If a listing's status is still "Pending" 24 hours after you attempt to publish, it may require additional verification to successfully connect.

Follow the steps below to verify your listing.


Before you begin

An Airbnb account can be stuck in "Pending" status for one of the following reasons:

  • Validation is required on the Airbnb extranet
  • One or more of Airbnb's rules were violated

Check your notifications on the Airbnb extranet to see if any of your listings were flagged for violating Airbnb's rules or if any further validation is necessary.

If there are no notifications related to these issues, follow the steps below to trigger the account's status to "Connected".
The status should change almost immediately.
