Apple Pay
Just when you thought that Airbnb payments couldn’t be any more seamless, the latest version of the app has added a new feature.  Now users will be able to pay for their Airbnb rentals using Apple’s new Apple Pay service.

 

 Of course, to take advantage of this new feature the guest will need to be sporting an iPhone 6 or 6 Plus, but more and more of these devices are being activated everyday.


 This does leave current Android users (like yours truly) out in the cold but that’s a situation we’ve come to expect.  But hey, it’s not all bad for Android users, Airbnb was quick to accept Google Wallet as a payment option a while back.  Guess this evens up the mobile payment debate through Airbnb.


 Other Sharing Economy services like Lyft, Uber, and OpenTable have already jumped on the Apple Pay bandwagon so Airbnb was wise to follow suit.  But what do you think?  Will simplified mobile payment options make you more likely to rent on Airbnb?
