What’s in this article?

We are excited to announce that Hostfully has been awarded the status of Airbnb Preferred Plus Partner for the second year in a row! This is an honor we believe reflects our commitment to providing a high-quality experience for our hosts, and the guests they serve. Here’s why Hostfully made the cut, and what it means for you.

Hostfully scores Preferred Plus Partner status two years in a row

Airbnb’s previous Preferred Partner Program recognized property management software (PMS) companies that offered a basic suite of connectivity features to its customers, and who met basic technical soundness to connect and exchange information with Airbnb.

In 2023, Airbnb expanded its Preferred Partner Program to differentiate top connectivity partners from the rest. With a higher threshold required to meet Preferred Partner Plus requirements, only seven PMS providers were awarded this new status, including Hostfully. This separated Hostfully – as well as the other Plus providers – from the dozens of other PMSs. This year, Hostfully has again been awarded this rare distinction.

How does the Airbnb Preferred Partner Plus designation impact Hostfully customers?

So what do Hostfully customers get? Being a Plus Partner means that:

  • Hostfully customers are provided access to a separate tier of technical support with Airbnb
  • Our reliable Airbnb connectivity gives us more monitoring resources and deepens our API optimization.
  • We’re privy to exciting Airbnb-related opportunities which means, providing more new features to our customers

Why Hostfully was awarded the Airbnb Preferred Partner Plus status

Each year since its Preferred Partner Plus launch, Airbnb has looked at feature offerings and technical connectivity criteria. On the former, we’ve continued to develop and maintain Airbnb-specific features in our PMS. On the latter, we once again demonstrated the strength of our industry-leading API.

What we had to demonstrate

To achieve the coveted Airbnb Preferred Partner Plus status, each year we have to achieve certain feature requirements and go through a connectivity review to meet Airbnb’s high standards.

We couldn’t be more proud!

Since Airbnb launched the status in 2023, our consecutive recognition as a Preferred Plus Partner continues to highlight our commitment to building robust, reliable, and customer-first products that help our users in their daily operations.
