Airbnb Split Pay
According to the company’s press release,
Roughly 4 out of 5 American travelers (79%) have been on multiple group trips in the last five years, according to a recent Airbnb survey conducted online by DKC Analytics among 2,000 people*, and that’s why today, Airbnb is becoming the first accommodation provider to build and implement a seamless, global split payments feature to travelers around the world.
Airbnb tested the feature with 80,000 groups in 175 countries using 44 currencies. The company accepts Apple Pay in its iOS app, and Apple is expected to roll out Apple Pay Cash with iOS 11.2.
