220.127.116.11 如果您对使用了该付款方案的预订做出更改，爱彼迎支付实体将通知您更改后的付款时间（如适用）。 如果更改后的预订总费用有所增加，您可能需要在更改订单时补足新产生费用的部分付款。
18.104.22.168 如果爱彼迎支付无法收取您的付款，爱彼迎支付实体会通知您该等拒绝付款，并要求您在收到通知后 72 小时内使用其他付款方式完成付款。 如果您未能完成付款，则您授权爱彼迎代您取消预订。 如果预订被取消，您将会根据房东的取消政策获得退款。 您确认，根据房东的取消政策，您可能需要为取消预订支付一定费用。

15.6 仲裁规则与适用法律。 本仲裁协议涉及州际商事交易，因此本规定的实质性和程序性解释与执行适用《联邦仲裁法》。仲裁将由美国仲裁协会根据当时有效的《消费者仲裁规则》和/或美国仲裁协会认定适用的其他美国仲裁协会的仲裁规则（「美国仲裁协会规则」）进行，但经本条修改的情况除外。 如需了解美国仲裁协会规则，请访问 www.adr.org。为了启动仲裁，必须按照美国仲裁协会规则的规定，向美国仲裁协会提交一份完整的书面请求（可见于 www.adr.org），并提供给对方
15.7 美国仲裁协会规则修改 – 仲裁听证/地点。 为方便您参加仲裁，爱彼迎支付实体同意，您可从以下选项中自行选择仲裁听证地点：(a)在您居住所在的美国郡/县；(b)在旧金山县；(c)通过电话或视频会议进行；或(d)如果各方同意，仅向仲裁员提交文件。
15.8 美国仲裁协会规则修改 – 律师费和开销。 您的仲裁费用和应分担的仲裁员酬劳受美国仲裁协会规则管辖，并在适当情况下受美国仲裁协会消费者规则的限制。如果仲裁员认定此类费用过高，爱彼迎支付实体将支付所有仲裁费用和开支。 任何一方均可根据适用法律和《美国仲裁协会规则》的规定，在证明对方提出的索赔、反索赔或辩护在事实上或法理上毫无根据、出于恶意或骚扰目的或者是纯属无关紧要的情况下，请求仲裁员裁定律师费和开销的支付。
15.9 仲裁员的裁定。 仲裁员的决定包含裁决所依据的主要事实和结论。任何有管辖权的法院均可就仲裁裁决作出判决。仲裁员可以裁定法律或美国仲裁协会规则允许的任何救济，但只有在针对具体个案、并且就申请人的诉求提供必要救济时，才能作出确认性或禁令性救济裁定。
15.10 放弃陪审团审理。 您和爱彼迎支付实体同意，就所有可仲裁的争议，双方均放弃由陪审团审理的权利。
15.11 不参与集团诉讼或代表人诉讼。 您和爱彼迎支付实体确认和同意，在法律允许的最大限度内，就所有争议，双方均放弃作为原告或集团诉讼成员参与任何集团诉讼、集团仲裁、私人提起的公诉或者其他代表性或合并诉讼程序。 除非双方另有书面约定，否则仲裁员不得将多于一方的索赔合并仲裁，也不得以其他方式主持任何形式的集体诉讼或代表人诉讼。如果最后的司法裁定认为适用法律不允许执行本款所载对任何索赔、诉讼原因或救济请求的放弃，则该索赔、诉讼原因或救济请求（且仅限于该项索赔、诉讼原因或救济请求）将从本仲裁协议中剔除，并将提交具有司法管辖权的法院审理。如果根据本款一项索赔、诉讼原因或救济请求被剔除，则您和爱彼迎同意，在仲裁员对所有可仲裁索赔、诉讼原因和救济请求作出裁决之前，将暂停进行不在仲裁范围内的索赔、诉讼原因或救济请求。
15.12 可分割性。除第 15.11 条规定情形外，一旦本仲裁协议的任何部分被认为不合法或不可执行，该部分规定将被剔除，而仲裁协议的其余部分仍具有完全效力。
15.13 更改仲裁协议。如果爱彼迎支付实体在您上次接受本《支付条款》（或接受对本《支付条款》的任何后续更改）后第 15 条发生变更，您可以在更改生效之日起三十（30）天内通过向我们发送书面通知（包括通过电子邮件）来拒绝接受该变更。 但拒绝新变更并不撤销或更改您此前与爱彼迎支付实体之间达成的有关仲裁争议的协议（或您此前对其任何后续变更的同意），该等协议就您与爱彼迎支付实体之间的任何争议而言，仍将保持有效且可强制执行。
15.14 存续。 除第 15.12 条规定的情形外，且在遵守第 13.7 条的前提下，本《支付条款》以任何方式终止后，本条款第 15 条继续有效且将继续适用，即便您不再使用支付服务或已终止您的爱彼迎账号。
16.1 对本《支付条款》的解释。 除非额外的条款和条件、政策、准则或标准另有补充，否则本《支付条款》构成爱彼迎支付实体与您之间关于本协议主题事项的完整协议，取代爱彼迎支付实体与您之间此前有关支付服务的任何和全部口头或书面谅解或协议。 如果本《支付条款》中任何条款被认定为无效或不可执行，该规定将被删除，不会影响其余条款的有效性和可执行性。
16.2 非弃权。 除非经我们书面确认和同意，爱彼迎支付实体未能执行本《支付条款》的任何权利或规定不构成对该等权利或规定的弃权。 除非本《支付条款》有明确规定，任何一方行使其在本《支付条款》下的任何救济不会影响其行使本《支付条款》或法律允许的其他救济。
16.3 转让。 未经爱彼迎支付实体事先书面同意，您不得让与、转让或委托执行本协议及您在本协议下的权利和义务。 爱彼迎支付实体可以依其自行决定，经提前三十（30）日（或提前两（2）个月向爱彼迎支付英国公司签约会员）通知，不受限制地让与、转让或委托执行本协议及本协议下的任何权利和义务。
16.4 通知。 除非另有规定，本协议允许或要求的任何通知或其他通讯将由爱彼迎支付实体以书面形式通过电子邮件或爱彼迎平台通知发送，具体取决于您的通知设置、讯息服务（包括短信和微信）。 收到通知的日期将被视为爱彼迎支付实体发送通知的日期。

17.2.3 如果您作为房东认为您未通过您所选的收款方式适当地收到某笔应向您支付的付款，爱彼迎支付英国公司将立即（如需要）努力追踪付款并将结果通知您。 除非我们能证明您通过您选择的收款方式已收到该笔款项，我们将退还该笔款项。

Payments Terms of Service for European Users
If you reside in, or the organization you are acting for is established in, the United States, the arbitration agreement and class actions waiver in Section 15 apply to you. Please read them carefully.
As a consumer you can access the European Commission’s online dispute resolution platform here: https://ec.europa.eu/consumers/odr. Please note that Airbnb Payments is not committed or obliged to use an alternative dispute resolution entity to resolve disputes with consumers.
Last Updated: October 30, 2020
These Payments Terms of Service for European Users (“Payments Terms”) are a binding legal agreement between you and Airbnb Payments that govern the Payment Services (defined below) conducted through or in connection with the Airbnb Platform. When these Payments Terms mention “Airbnb Payments,” “we,” “us,” or “our,” it refers to:
- Airbnb Payments Luxembourg S.A. (“Airbnb Payment Luxembourg”) if your country of residence is in the EEA.
- Airbnb Payments UK Ltd. (“Airbnb Payments UK”) if your country of residence is in the United Kingdom or Switzerland.
Airbnb Payments provides payments services to Members publishing, offering and booking Accommodations, Experiences or other Host Services, including services in connection with the Open Homes Program and other current and future services provided via the Airbnb Platform. These payment services may include (if available) the following (collectively, “Payment Services”):
- Collecting payments from Guests (“Payin”), by charging the payment method associated with their Airbnb account, such as credit card, debit card, bank account or PayPal account (“Payment Method”);
- Effecting payments to Hosts (“Payout”) to a financial instrument associated with their Airbnb account, such as a PayPal account, bank account, direct deposit, a prepaid card, or a debit card (“Payout Method”);
- Effecting payments to a third-party Payout Method designated by a Host;
- Collection and payment of charitable donations;
- Payment collection services; and
- Other payment related services in connection with Host Services.
In order to use the Payment Services, you must be at least 18 years old, must have an Airbnb account in good standing in accordance with the Airbnb Terms of Service (“Terms”), and must keep your payment and personal information accurate and complete.
If you change your country of residence, the Airbnb company you contract with and the applicable version of the Payment Terms will be determined by your new country of residence from the date on which your country of residence changes. Please note, however, that the Airbnb Payments company with whom you contract will stay the same for all bookings made prior to your change of residence.

1. Your use of the Payment Services
1.1 Airbnb Payment Services. By using the Payments Services, you agree to comply with these Payment Terms. Airbnb Payments may temporarily limit or suspend your access to or use of the Payment Services, or its features, to carry out maintenance measures that ensure the proper functioning of the Payment Services. Airbnb Payments may improve, enhance and modify the Payment Services and introduce new Payment Services from time to time. Airbnb Payments will provide notice to Members of any changes to the Payment Services, unless such changes do not materially increase the Members’ contractual obligations or decrease the Members’ rights under these Payments Terms.
1.2 Third Party Services. The Payment Services may contain links to third-party websites or resources (“Third-Party Services”). Such Third-Party Services are subject to different terms of service and privacy policies, and Members should review them. Airbnb Payments is not responsible or liable for the use of such Third-Party Services. Links to any Third-Party Services are not an endorsement by Airbnb Payments of those Third-Party Services.
1.3 Your Airbnb Account. Airbnb Payments may enable features that allow you to authorize other Members or third parties to take certain actions that affect your Airbnb account. You may authorize a third party to use your Airbnb account if the feature is enabled for your Airbnb account. You acknowledge and agree that anyone you authorize to use your Airbnb account may use the Payment Services on your behalf and that you will be responsible for any payments made by such person. If you reside in the EEA and contract with Airbnb Payments Luxembourg, this Section 1.3 does not apply to you.
1.4 Verification. You authorize Airbnb Payments, directly or through third parties, to make any inquiries we consider necessary to verify your identity. This may include (i) screening you against third-party databases or other sources, (ii) requesting reports from service providers, (iii) asking you to provide a form of government identification (e.g., driver’s license or passport), your date of birth, your address, and other information; or (iv) requiring you to take steps to confirm ownership of your email address, Payment Method(s) or Payout Method(s). Airbnb Payments reserves the right to terminate, suspend, or limit access to the Payment Services in the event we are unable to obtain or verify any of this information.
1.5 Additional Terms. Your access to or use of certain Payment Services may be subject to, or require you to accept, additional terms and conditions. If there is a conflict between these Payments Terms and terms and conditions applicable to a specific Payment Service, the latter terms and conditions will take precedence with respect to your use of or access to that Payment Service, unless specified otherwise.
2. Guest Terms
2.1 Adding a Payment Method. When you add a Payment Method to your Airbnb account, you will be asked to provide billing information such as name, billing address, and financial instrument information either to Airbnb Payments or its third-party payment processor(s). You authorize Airbnb Payments and its payment service providers to collect and store your Payment Method information.
2.2 Payment Method Verification. When you add or use a new Payment Method, Airbnb Payments may verify the Payment Method by (i) authorizing your Payment Method for one or two nominal amounts via a payment service provider, and asking you to confirm those amounts, or (ii) requiring you to upload a billing statement. We may, and retain the right to, initiate refunds of these amounts from your Payment Method. When you add a Payment Method during checkout, we will automatically save and add that Payment Method to your Airbnb account so it can be used for a future transaction. You can remove the Payment Method from your Airbnb account as long as it is not associated with an active or future reservation.
2.3 Payment Authorization. You allow Airbnb Payments to charge your Payment Method (including charging more than one payment method), either directly or indirectly, for all fees due (including any applicable taxes) in connection with your Airbnb account.
2.4 Automatic Update of Payment Method. If your Payment Method’s account information changes (e.g., account number, routing number, expiration date) as a result of re-issuance or otherwise, we may acquire that information from our financial services partners or your bank and automatically update your Payment Method on file.
2.5 Timing of Payment. Airbnb Payments generally charges the Total Price due after the Host accepts your booking request. However, if you pay with a push Payment Method (such as Sofort), Airbnb Payments will collect the Total Price due at the time of your booking request or after the Host accepts your booking request. Airbnb Payments may offer alternative options for the timing and manner of payment. Any additional fees for using those alternative payment options will be displayed via the Airbnb Platform and included in the Total Price, and you agree to pay such fees by selecting the payment option. Additional terms and conditions may apply for the use of an alternative payment option. If Airbnb Payments is unable to collect the Total Price due, as scheduled, Airbnb Payments will collect the Total Price due at a later point in accordance with Section 5.3. Once the payment for your requested booking is successfully completed, you will receive a confirmation email.
2.6 Currency. Airbnb Payments will process each transaction in the currency you select via the Airbnb Platform. The currencies available to make payments may be limited for regulatory or operational reasons based on factors such as your selected Payment Method, your country of residence and/or your Airbnb Payments contracting entity(ies). Any such limitations will be communicated via the Airbnb Platform, and you will be prompted to select a different currency or Payment Method. Note that if your Airbnb Payments contracting entity’s location is different than the country of your Payment Method or your selected currency is different than your Payment Method's billing currency, your payment may be processed outside of your country of residence. As a result, certain fees may apply and the amount listed on your card statement may be different from the amount shown at checkout. For example, if you make a booking using a U.S. issued card, but select Euro as your currency, your payment may be processed outside the U.S., and banks and credit card companies may impose international transaction fees and foreign exchange fees. In addition, if you select to pay with a currency that is different than your Payment Method's billing currency, your bank or credit card company may convert the payment amount to your billing currency associated with your Payment Method, based on an exchange rate and fee amount determined solely by your bank. Airbnb Payments is not responsible for any such fees and disclaims all liability in this regard. Please contact your bank or credit card company if you have any questions about these fees or the applicable exchange rate.
2.7 Booking Request Status. If a requested booking is declined either because it is not accepted by the Host or you cancel the booking request before it is accepted by the Host, any amounts collected by Airbnb Payments will be refunded to you, and any pre-authorization of your Payment Method will be released (if applicable). The timing to receive the refund or for the pre-authorization to be released will vary based on the Payment Method and any applicable payment system (e.g., Visa, MasterCard, etc.) rules.
2.8 Payment Restrictions. Airbnb Payments reserves the right to decline or limit payments that we believe (i) may violate Airbnb Payments’ risk management policies or procedures, (ii) may violate these Payments Terms or the Terms, (iii) are unauthorized, fraudulent or illegal; or (iv) expose you, Airbnb, Airbnb Payments, or others to risks unacceptable to Airbnb Payments.
2.10 Your Payment Method, Your Responsibility. Airbnb Payments is not responsible for any loss suffered by you as a result of incorrect Payment Method information provided by you.
2.11 Different Ways to Pay
2.11.1 Payment Plan
188.8.131.52 Airbnb Payments may make available to Guests the option to pay a portion of the booking’s Total Price at the time of booking and pay the remainder of the Total Price at a later time prior to check-in (“Payment Plan”). Availability of this option may depend on the Listing and/or Payment Method.
184.108.40.206 If you choose a Payment Plan, the Airbnb Platform will notify you during check out of the amount, currency and schedule of each payment due. On the following payments due date, Airbnb Payments will automatically charge the original Payment Method you used to make the booking.
220.127.116.11 If you make a modification to a booking made with a Payment Plan, Airbnb Payments will notify you of the revised payment schedule, as applicable. If the modification increases your Total Price, you may be required to make an additional partial payment of the new Total Price at the time of the modification.
18.104.22.168 You agree that by selecting a Payment Plan, you may not be able to pay for the booking with a different Payment Method or pursuant to a different payment schedule.
22.214.171.124 If Airbnb Payments is unable to collect your payment, Airbnb Payments will notify you of such declined payment, and require you to complete the payment using an alternative Payment Method within 72 hours of the notice. If you fail to complete the payment, you authorize Airbnb to cancel the booking on your behalf. If the booking is canceled, you will be refunded based on the Host’s cancellation policy. You acknowledge that you may incur fees for cancellations pursuant to the Host’s cancellation policy.
2.11.2 Recurring Payments
126.96.36.199 For certain bookings (such as for Accommodation bookings of twenty-eight (28) nights or more), Airbnb Payments may require a Guest to make recurring, incremental payments toward the Total Price owed (“Recurring Payments”). More information on Recurring Payments (including the amount and the frequency of payments) will be made available via the Airbnb Platform if applicable to a booking.
188.8.131.52 If Recurring Payments apply to a confirmed booking, then the Guest authorizes Airbnb Payments to collect the Total Price due.
184.108.40.206 Guests may stop a Recurring Payment by notifying Airbnb Payments orally or in writing at least three (3) business days before the scheduled date of the payment. Airbnb Payments may require you to give written confirmation of a stop-payment order within fourteen (14) days of an oral notification. If you fail to provide written confirmation within those fourteen (14) days, Airbnb Payments is not obligated to honor your request to stop any future Recurring Payments. If you have any questions regarding your Recurring Payments, please contact Airbnb Payments.
3. Host Terms
3.1 Payment Collection. Airbnb Payments generally collects the Total Price of a booking at the time the Guest’s booking request is accepted by the Host, unless noted otherwise.
3.2 Adding a Payout Method. In order to receive a Payout you must have a valid Payout Method linked to your Airbnb account. When you add a Payout Method to your Airbnb account, you will be asked to provide billing information such as name, billing address, and financial instrument information either to Airbnb Payments or its third-party payment processor(s). Depending on the Payout Method selected additional information may be required, such as: residential address, name on the account, account type, routing number, account number, email address, payout currency, identification number and account information associated with a particular payment processor. You authorize Airbnb Payments to collect and store your billing information and financial instrument information. Airbnb Payments may also share your information with governmental authorities as required by applicable law.
3.3 Timing of Payout
3.3.1 Subject to and conditional upon successful receipt of the payments from Guest, Airbnb Payments will generally initiate Payouts to your selected Payout Method: (i) for Accommodations, 24 hours after the Guest’s scheduled check-in time (or 24 hours after 3:00 pm local time - or 3:00 pm UTC if local time is unknown - if the check-in time is flexible or not specified); (ii) for Experiences, 24 hours after the start of the Experience; and (iii) for all other Host Services, at the time specified via the Airbnb Platform. For Accommodation bookings of twenty-eight (28) nights or more, Airbnb Payments will generally initiate the first payout 24 hours after the Guest’s scheduled check-in time, and will initiate future payouts every 30 days after the initial payout, for the duration of the reservation.
3.3.2 Airbnb Payments may offer you a different Payout time or trigger for payment, which may be subject to additional terms and conditions.The time it takes to receive Payouts once released by Airbnb Payments may depend upon the Payout Method you select.
3.4 Payout. Your Payout for a booking will be the Total Price less applicable fees like Airbnb service fees and applicable taxes. In the event of cancellation of a confirmed booking, Airbnb Payments will remit the amount you are due (if any) as provided in the Terms and applicable cancellation policy.
3.5 Payout Restrictions. Airbnb Payments may temporarily place a hold, suspend, or cancel any Payout for purposes of preventing unlawful activity or fraud, risk assessment, security, or completing an investigation; or if we are unable to verify your identity. Furthermore, Airbnb Payments may temporarily place a hold on, suspend, or delay initiating or processing any Payout due to you under the Terms as a result of high volume Booking cancellations or modifications arising from a Force Majeure Event (as defined below).
3.6 Currency Conversion. Airbnb Payments will remit your Payouts in the currency you select via the Airbnb Platform. The currencies available may be limited for regulatory or operational reasons based on factors such as your selected Payout Method, your country of residence, and/or your Airbnb contracting entity(ies). Any such limitations will be communicated via the Airbnb Platform, and you will be prompted to select a different currency or Payout Method. Note that payment service providers may impose transaction, currency conversion or other fees based on the currency or Payout Method you select, and Airbnb Payments is not responsible for any such fees and disclaims all liability in this regard.
3.7 Limits on Payouts. For compliance or operational reasons, Airbnb Payments may limit the amount of a Payout. If you are due an amount above that limit, Airbnb Payments may make a series of Payouts (potentially over multiple days) in order to provide your full Payout amount.
3.9 Your Payout Method, Your Responsibility. Airbnb Payments is not responsible for any loss suffered by you as a result of incorrect Payout Method information provided by you.
3.10 Different ways to get paid
3.10.1 Split Payouts
If you provide Host Services jointly with one or more other Hosts as part of a team, business or other organization (“Host Team”), Airbnb may make available to such Hosts the option to allocate between the members of the Host Team the total Host Payout for a booking. Airbnb Payments will execute such payments at the instruction of one or more members of the Host Team and is not responsible for any losses related to errors or omissions made by the Hosts in providing such payment instructions.
4. Appointment of Airbnb Payments as Limited Payment Collection Agent
4.1 Each Host, including each Host Team member, hereby appoints Airbnb Payments as the Host’s payment collection agent solely for the limited purpose of accepting and processing funds from Guests purchasing Host Services on the Host’s behalf.
4.2 Each Host, including each Host Team member, agrees that payment made by a Guest through Airbnb Payments, shall be considered the same as a payment made directly to the Host, and the Host will provide the Host Service booked by the Guest in the agreed-upon manner as if the Host has received the payment directly from the Guest. Each Host agrees that Airbnb Payments may refund the Guest in accordance with the Terms. Each Host understands that Airbnb Payments’ obligation to pay the Host is subject to and conditional upon successful receipt of the associated payments from Guest. Airbnb Payments guarantees payments to Host(s) only for such amounts that have been successfully received by Airbnb Payments from Guests in accordance with these Payments Terms. In accepting appointment as the limited payment collection agent of the Host, Airbnb Payments assumes no liability for any acts or omissions of the Host.
4.3 Each Guest acknowledges and agrees that, notwithstanding the fact that Airbnb Payments is not a party to the agreement between you and the Host(s), including each Host Team member, Airbnb Payments acts as each Host’s payment collection agent for the limited purpose of accepting payments from you on behalf of the Host(s). Upon a Guest’s payment of the funds to Airbnb Payments, the Guest’s payment obligation to the Host(s) for the agreed upon amount is extinguished, and Airbnb Payments is responsible for remitting the funds successfully received by Airbnb Payments to the Host(s) in the manner described in these Payments Terms. In the event that Airbnb Payments does not remit any such amounts, the Host(s) will have recourse only against Airbnb Payments and not the Guest directly.
5. General Terms
5.1 Fees. Airbnb Payments may charge fees for use of certain Payment Services and any applicable fees will be disclosed to you in the Terms or via the Airbnb Platform.
5.2 Payment Authorizations. You authorize Airbnb Payments to collect from you amounts due pursuant to these Payment Terms and/or the Terms by either (i) charging the Payment Method associated with the relevant booking, or any other Payment Method on file that you authorize in your Airbnb account (unless you have previously removed the authorization to charge such Payment Method(s)), or (ii) by withholding the amount from your future Payout. Specifically, you authorize Airbnb Payments to collect from you:
- Any amount due to Airbnb or Airbnb Payments (e.g., as a result of your bookings, Booking Modifications, cancellations, or other actions as a Guest, Host or user of the Airbnb Platform), including reimbursement for costs prepaid by Airbnb or Airbnb Payments on your behalf. Any funds collected by Airbnb Payments will set off the amount owed by you to Airbnb or Airbnb Payments and extinguish your obligation to Airbnb or Airbnb Payments.
- Any amount due to a Host from a Guest which Airbnb collects as the Host’s payment collection agent as further set out in Section 4 above.

5.3.4 You hereby explicitly agree that all communications in relation to amounts owed will be made by electronic mail or by phone, as provided to Airbnb and/or Airbnb Payments by you.

5.4 Payment Processing Errors
5.4.1 Airbnb Payments will take the necessary steps to rectify any payment processing errors that we become aware of. These steps may include crediting or debiting (as appropriate) the original Payout Method or Payment Method used or selected by you, so that you end up receiving or paying the correct amount. This may be performed by Airbnb Payments or a third party such as your financial institution. We may also take steps to recover funds sent to you in error (including but not limited to an event of duplicate payments made to you due to a processing error), by reducing, setting off and/or debiting the amount of such funds from any future Payouts owed to you.
5.4.2 To the extent you receive any funds in error, you agree to immediately return such funds to Airbnb Payments.

You represent and warrant that: (i) neither you nor your Host Services are located or take place in a country that is subject to a U.S. Government embargo, or that has been designated by the U.S. Government as a “terrorist supporting” country; and (ii) you are not listed on any U.S. Government list of prohibited or restricted parties. In addition to complying with the above, you must also comply with any relevant export control laws in your local jurisdiction.
9. Force Majeure
Airbnb Payments shall not be liable for any delay or failure to fulfill any obligation under these Payments Terms resulting from causes outside the reasonable control of Airbnb or Airbnb Payments, including, but not limited to, acts of God, natural disasters, war, terrorism, riots, embargos, acts of civil or military authorities, fire, floods, accidents, pandemics, epidemics or disease, strikes or shortages of transportation facilities, fuel, energy, labor or materials (“Force Majeure Event”).
10.1 If you choose to use the Payment Services, you do so voluntarily and at your sole risk. To the maximum extent permitted by law, the Payment Services are provided “as is”, without warranty of any kind, either express or implied.
10.2 Notwithstanding Airbnb Payments’ appointment as the limited payment collection agent of Hosts pursuant to Section 4, Airbnb Payments explicitly disclaims all liability for any act or omission of any Member or other third party. Airbnb Payments does not have any duties or obligations as agent for each Host except to the extent expressly set forth in these Payments Terms, and any additional duties or obligations as may be implied by law are, to the maximum extent permitted by applicable law, expressly excluded.
10.3 If we choose to conduct identity verification on any Member, to the extent permitted by applicable law, we disclaim warranties of any kind, either express or implied, that such checks will identify prior misconduct by a Member or guarantee that a Member will not engage in misconduct in the future.
10.4 The foregoing disclaimers apply to the maximum extent permitted by law. You may have other statutory rights or warranties which cannot lawfully be excluded. However, the duration of any statutorily required warranties shall be limited to the maximum extent (if any) permitted by law.
11.1 If you reside in the UK or Switzerland and contract with Airbnb Payments UK you acknowledge and agree that, to the maximum extent permitted by law, the entire risk arising out of your access to and use of the Payment Services remains with you. If you permit or authorize another person to use your Airbnb account in any way, you are responsible for the actions taken by that person. Neither Airbnb Payments nor any other party involved in creating, producing, or delivering the Payment Services will be liable for any incidental, special, exemplary, or consequential damages, including lost profits, loss of data or loss of goodwill, service interruption, computer damage or system failure or the cost of substitute products or services, or for any damages for personal or bodily injury or emotional distress arising out of or in connection with (i) these Payments Terms, (ii) from the use of or inability to use the Payment Services, or (iii) from any communications, interactions, or meetings with other Members or other persons with whom you communicate, interact, transact, or meet with as a result of your use of the Payment Services, whether based on warranty, contract, tort (including negligence), product liability, or any other legal theory, and whether or not Airbnb Payments has been informed of the possibility of such damage, even if a limited remedy set forth herein is found to have failed of its essential purpose. Except for our obligations to pay amounts to applicable Hosts pursuant to these Payments Terms or an approved payment request under the Airbnb Host Guarantee, in no event will Airbnb Payments’ aggregate liability arising out of or in connection with these Payments Terms and your use of the Payment Services including, but not limited to, from your use of or inability to use the Payment Services, exceed (i) the amounts you have paid or owe for bookings via the Airbnb Platform as a Guest in the twelve (12) month period prior to the event giving rise to the liability, or if you are a Host, the amounts paid by Airbnb Payments to you in the twelve (12) month period prior to the event giving rise to the liability, or (ii) one hundred U.S. dollars (US$100), if no such payments have been made, as applicable. The limitations of damages set forth above are fundamental elements of the basis of the bargain between Airbnb Payments and you. Some jurisdictions do not allow the exclusion or limitation of liability for consequential or incidental damages, so the above limitation may not apply to you. If you reside outside of the U.S., this does not affect Airbnb Payments’ liability for death or personal injury arising from its negligence, nor for fraudulent misrepresentation, misrepresentation as to a fundamental matter, or any other liability which cannot be excluded or limited under applicable law.
11.2 If you reside in the EEA and contract with Airbnb Payments Luxembourg, Section 11.1 does not apply, and Airbnb Payments is liable under statutory provisions for intent and gross negligence by us, our legal representatives, directors, or other vicarious agents. The same applies to the assumption of guarantees or any other strict liability, or in case of a culpable injury to life, limb, or health. Airbnb Payments is liable for any negligent breaches of essential contractual obligations by us, our legal representatives, directors, or other vicarious agents; such liability is limited to the typically occurring foreseeable damages. Essential contractual obligations are such duties of Airbnb Payments in whose proper fulfillment you regularly trust and must trust for the proper execution of the contract. Any additional liability of Airbnb Payments is excluded to the maximum extent allowed by applicable law.
To the maximum extent permitted by applicable law, you agree to release, defend (at Airbnb Payments’ option), indemnify, and hold Airbnb Payments and its affiliates and subsidiaries, and their officers, directors, employees, and agents, harmless from and against any claims, liabilities, damages, losses, and expenses, including, without limitation, reasonable legal and accounting fees, arising out of or in any way connected with (i) your breach of these Payments Terms; (ii) your improper use of the Payment Services; (iii) your failure, or our failure at your direction, to accurately report, collect or remit taxes; or (iv) your breach of any laws, regulations, or third-party rights. If your country of residence is in the EEA, the indemnification obligation according to this Section 12 only applies if and to the extent that the claims, liabilities, damages, losses, and expenses have been adequately caused by your culpable breach of a contractual obligation.
13. Modification, Term, Termination, and other Measures
13.1 Modification. Except as otherwise required by applicable law, Airbnb Payments may modify these Payments Terms at any time. If we make material changes to these Payments Terms, we will post the revised Payments Terms on the Airbnb Platform and update the “Last Updated” date at the top of these Payments Terms. If you are affected by the modification, we will also provide you with notice of the modification at least two (2) months before the date they become effective. If you do not terminate your agreement before the date the revised Payments Terms become effective, your continued use of the Payment Services will constitute acceptance of any changes to the revised Payments Terms.
13.2 Term. This agreement between you and Airbnb Payments reflected by these Payments Terms is effective when you create an Airbnb account or use the Payment Services and remains in effect until either you or we terminate this agreement in accordance with Section 13.3.
13.3 Termination. You may terminate this agreement at any time by sending us an email or by deleting your Airbnb account. Terminating this agreement will also serve as notice to cancel your Airbnb account pursuant to the Terms.

Airbnb Payments may also terminate this agreement immediately without notice if (i) you have materially breached your obligations under this agreement; (ii) you have provided inaccurate, fraudulent, outdated, or incomplete information; (iii) you have violated applicable laws, regulations, or third-party rights; or (iv) Airbnb Payments believes in good faith that such action is reasonably necessary to protect other Members, Airbnb, Airbnb Payments, or third parties.

Further, for unsuccessful payment due to card expiration, insufficient funds, or otherwise, we may temporarily suspend your access to the Payment Services until we can charge a valid Payment Method.
13.5 Appeal. If Airbnb Payments takes any of the measures described in Section 13.3 and 13.4 you may appeal such a decision by contacting customer service.
13.6 Effect of Termination. If you cancel your Airbnb account as a Host or Airbnb Payments takes any of the measures described above, Airbnb Payments may provide a full refund to any Guests with confirmed booking(s), and you will not be entitled to any compensation for pending or confirmed bookings that were cancelled. If you cancel your Airbnb account as a Guest, Airbnb Payments will initiate a refund for any confirmed booking(s) based on the Listing’s cancellation policy. If your access to or use of the Payment Services has been suspended or limited or this agreement has been terminated by us, you may not register a new Airbnb account or attempt to access and use the Payment Services through an Airbnb account of another Member.
13.7 Survival. Unless your country of residence is in the EEA, Sections 5 through 20 of these Payments Terms shall survive any termination or expiration of this agreement.
14. Governing Law and Dispute Resolution
14.1 If you are contracting with Airbnb Payments UK, these Payments Terms will be interpreted in accordance with English law. If you are acting as a consumer and if mandatory statutory consumer protection regulations in your country of residence contain provisions that are more beneficial for you, such provisions shall apply irrespective of the choice of English law. As a consumer, you may bring any judicial proceedings relating to these Payments Terms before the competent court of your place of residence or a court in England. If Airbnb wishes to enforce any of its rights against you as a consumer, we may do so only in the courts of the jurisdiction in which you are a resident. If you are acting as a business, you agree to submit to the exclusive jurisdiction of the English courts.
14.2 If you are contracting with Airbnb Payments Luxembourg, these Payments Terms will be interpreted in accordance with Luxembourg law.

15. United States Arbitration Agreement
15.1 Application. This Arbitration Agreement only applies to you if you are contracting with Airbnb Payment US. If you are not contracting with Airbnb Payments US, and you nevertheless attempt to bring any legal claim against Airbnb Payments in the United States, this Arbitration Agreement will apply for determination of the threshold issue of whether this Section 15 applies to you, and all other threshold determinations, including residency, arbitrability, venue, and applicable law.
15.2 Overview of Dispute Resolution Process. Airbnb Payments is committed to participating in a consumer-friendly dispute resolution process. To that end, these Payments Terms provide for a two-part process for individuals to whom this Section 15 applies: (1) an informal negotiation directly with Airbnb’s customer service team (described in paragraph 15.3, below), and if necessary (2) a binding arbitration administered by the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”). You and Airbnb Payments each retain the right to seek relief in small claims court as an alternative to arbitration.
15.3 Mandatory Pre-Arbitration Dispute Resolution and Notification. At least 30 days prior to initiating an arbitration, you and Airbnb Payments each agree to notify the other party of the dispute in writing and attempt in good faith to negotiate an informal resolution. You must send your notice of dispute to Airbnb Payments by mailing it to Airbnb Payments’ agent for service: CSC Lawyers Incorporating Service, 2710 Gateway Oaks Drive, Suite 150N, Sacramento, California 95833. Airbnb Payments will send its notice of dispute to the email address associated with your Airbnb account. A notice of dispute must include: the party’s name and preferred contact information, a brief description of the dispute, and the relief sought. If the parties are unable to resolve the dispute within the 30-day period, only then may either party commence arbitration by filing a written Demand for Arbitration (available at www.adr.org) with the AAA and providing a copy to the other party as specified in the AAA Rules (available at www.adr.org).
15.4 Agreement to Arbitrate. You and Airbnb Payments mutually agree that any dispute, claim or controversy arising out of or relating to these Payments Terms or the applicability, breach, termination, validity, enforcement or interpretation thereof, or any use of the Payment Services (collectively, “Disputes”) will be settled by binding individual arbitration (the “Arbitration Agreement”). If there is a dispute about whether this Arbitration Agreement can be enforced or applies to our Dispute, you and Airbnb Payments agree that the arbitrator will decide that issue.
15.5 Exceptions to Arbitration Agreement. You and Airbnb Payments each agree that the following causes of action and/or claims for relief are exceptions to the Arbitration Agreement and will be brought in a judicial proceeding in a court of competent jurisdiction (as defined by Section 15): (i) any claim or cause of action seeking emergency injunctive relief based on exigent circumstances (e.g., imminent danger or commission of a crime, hacking, cyber-attack); or (ii) a request for the remedy of public injunctive relief. You and Airbnb Payments agree that the remedy of public injunctive relief will proceed after the arbitration of all arbitrable claims, remedies, or causes of action, and will be stayed pending the outcome of the arbitration pursuant to section 3 of the Federal Arbitration Act.
15.6 Arbitration Rules and Governing Law. This Arbitration Agreement evidences a transaction in interstate commerce and the Federal Arbitration Act governs all substantive and procedural interpretation and enforcement of this provision. The arbitration will be administered by AAA in accordance with the Consumer Arbitration Rules and/or other AAA arbitration rules determined to be applicable by the AAA (the “AAA Rules”) then in effect, except as modified here. The AAA Rules are available at www.adr.org. In order to initiate arbitration, a completed written demand (available at www.adr.org) must be filed with the AAA and provided to the other party, as specified in the AAA rules.
15.7 Modification to AAA Rules - Arbitration Hearing/Location. In order to make the arbitration most convenient to you, Airbnb Payments agrees that any required arbitration hearing may be conducted, at your option: (a) in the U.S county where you reside; (b) in San Francisco County; (c) via phone or video conference; or (d) if all parties agree, by solely the submission of documents to the arbitrator.
15.8 Modification of AAA Rules - Attorney’s Fees and Costs. Your arbitration fees and your share of arbitrator compensation shall be governed by the AAA Rules and, where appropriate, limited by the AAA Consumer Rules. If such costs are determined by the arbitrator to be excessive, Airbnb Payments will pay all arbitration fees and expenses. Either party may make a request that the arbitrator award attorneys’ fees and costs upon proving that the other party has asserted a claim, cross-claim or defense that is groundless in fact or law, brought in bad faith or for the purpose of harassment, or is otherwise frivolous, as allowed by applicable law and the AAA Rules.
15.9 Arbitrator’s Decision. The arbitrator’s decision will include the essential findings and conclusions upon which the arbitrator based the award. Judgment on the arbitration award may be entered in any court with proper jurisdiction. The arbitrator may award any relief allowed by law or the AAA Rules, but declaratory or injunctive relief may be awarded only on an individual basis and only to the extent necessary to provide relief warranted by the claimant’s individual claim.
15.10 Jury Trial Waiver. You and Airbnb Payments acknowledge and agree that we are each waiving the right to a trial by jury as to all arbitrable Disputes.
15.11 No Class Actions or Representative Proceedings. You and Airbnb Payments acknowledge and agree that, to the fullest extent permitted by law, we are each waiving the right to participate as a plaintiff or class member in any purported class action lawsuit, class-wide arbitration, private attorney general action, or any other representative or consolidated proceeding. Unless we agree in writing, the arbitrator may not consolidate more than one party’s claims and may not otherwise preside over any form of any class or representative proceeding. If there is a final judicial determination that applicable law precludes enforcement of the waiver contained in this paragraph as to any claim, cause of action or requested remedy, then that claim, cause of action or requested remedy, and only that claim, cause of action or requested remedy, will be severed from this agreement to arbitrate and will be brought in a court of competent jurisdiction. In the event that a claim, cause of action or requested remedy is severed pursuant to this paragraph, then you and we agree that the claims, causes of action or requested remedies that are not subject to arbitration will be stayed until all arbitrable claims, causes of action and requested remedies are resolved by the arbitrator.
15.12 Severability. Except as provided in Section 15.11, in the event that any portion of this Arbitration Agreement is deemed illegal or unenforceable, such provision shall be severed and the remainder of the Arbitration Agreement will be given full force and effect.
15.13 Changes to Agreement to Arbitrate. If Airbnb Payments changes this Section 15 after the date you last accepted these Payments Terms (or accepted any subsequent changes to these Payments Terms), you may reject that change by sending us written notice (including by email) within thirty (30) days of the date the change is effective. Rejecting a new change, however, does not revoke or alter your prior consent to any earlier agreements to arbitrate any Dispute between you and Airbnb Payments (or your prior consent to any subsequent changes thereto), which will remain in effect and enforceable as to any Dispute between you and Airbnb Payments.
15.14 Survival. Except as provided in Section 15.12 and subject to Section 13.7, this Section 15 will survive any termination of these Payments Terms and will continue to apply even if you stop using the Payment Services or terminate your Airbnb account.
16.1 Interpreting these Payments Terms. Except as they may be supplemented by additional terms and conditions, policies, guidelines, or standards, these Payments Terms constitute the entire agreement between Airbnb Payments and you regarding the subject matter hereof, and supersede any and all prior oral or written understandings or agreements between Airbnb Payments and you regarding the Payment Services. If any provision of these Payments Terms is held to be invalid or unenforceable, such provision will be struck and will not affect the validity and enforceability of the remaining provisions.
16.2 No Waiver. Airbnb Payments’ failure to enforce any right or provision in these Payments Terms will not constitute a waiver of such right or provision unless acknowledged and agreed to by us in writing. Except as expressly set forth in these Payments Terms, the exercise by either party of any of its remedies under these Payments Terms will be without prejudice to its other remedies under these Payments Terms or otherwise permitted under law.
16.3 Assignment. You may not assign, transfer, or delegate this agreement or your rights and obligations hereunder without Airbnb Payments’ prior written consent. Airbnb Payments may without restriction assign, transfer, or delegate this agreement and any rights and obligations, at its sole discretion, with two (2) months’ prior notice.
16.4 Notices. Unless specified otherwise, any notices or other communications permitted or required under this agreement, will be in writing and given by Airbnb Payments via email or Airbnb Platform notification, and depending on your notification setting, messaging service (including SMS and WeChat). The date of receipt will be deemed the date on which Airbnb Payments transmits the notice.
16.5 Language. If you are contracting with Airbnb Payments Luxembourg, this agreement is concluded in the language as applied by the Terms and all communication undertaken during this contractual relationship shall be made in that language.
