Looking to import an Airbnb listing - but I'll be co-host on this one - is there anything different I need to do either during import or day to day? Or just follow the guide walkthrough? VRBO I have to create net new listing for.

thanks

Probably - the Airbnb API cannot connect to properties you are co-hosting through your own account. You have to set up a separate API connection using the host's account:

For just the property import, though, it doesn't matter - OwnerRez is reading data on the public internet that anyone can see.

Hi Ken, 

Is it possible to add more than 2 Airbnb accounts? I'm trying to add a 3rd following the instructions in this link but I'm having a hard time. Am I missing something?

You can have multiple Airbnb API channels created, each associated with a different Airbnb login, however each channel must use the primary host login credentials, not cohost logins.
