As Airbnb rolls out its winter release and focuses more on cleaning fees, it would be great to have more options as to how cleaning fees can be structured.  I am much more willing to reduce my cleaning fee or eliminate it based on amount of rent on a reservation.  My cleaners charge me the same fees regardless of length of stay.  However, as a host, I am willing to absorb more of that cost if it's a high dollar reservation.  For example, during my peak season,  I am able to get $5000 for a weekly stay.  It's not as bad to absorb the $250 cleaning fee.  However, during my shoulder season, I'm only able to charge $1000 for a weekly stay.  Absorbing $250 when the weekly stay is only $1000 becomes very steep.  It would be great to be able to structure my cleaning fees based on the rent charged (before taxes and OTA fees).   I hope we have the ability to do that in the near future.

Thank you!

You can do all of that... with direct bookings.  Unfortunately, Airbnb does not allow anything like that, so, you'd have to reach out to them with the suggestion.
