When you connect Lodgify to Airbnb via the channel manager, you allow information to be synced between endpoints on both platforms.
The table below details exactly what is synced, so you can understand the error messages in case of an issue in the API connection between Lodgify and Airbnb.
What are Endpoints?
An endpoint is where data is gathered, in one end, from an API so that it can be synchronised at the other end. Lodgify uses endpoints to communicate data to Airbnb, such as rental prices, descriptions, and photos.
It can be useful for you to understand the wording in your connection if you need to solve an error on your side, or if you need to contact our support team / the Airbnb support team.
Find the Airbnb endpoints
To check whether there is a connection problem on an endpoint for one or more of your rentals, follow these steps:
- Go to your Main Menu in the top left corner and select Channel manager.
- Choose Airbnb.
- Below Sync Status, if you see the message Failed to sync, this means that there is an error in one of the listing points.
- You can click on Failed to sync to see the endpoints and the error message:
The list of endpoints is displayed, you can see when the last synchronisation took place and the error message in case no synchronisation could be sent:

💡 Note: Be aware that the below values will only be updated when there is a price, availability, or content change registered in your synchronized Lodgify rental. If no change is applied, we will keep syncing your Lodgify settings to Airbnb, but no update in values will be registered.
