Airbnb shuts down its affiliate program at the end of March


"Effective March 31, 2021, we will be closing our Airbnb Associates Program," the company said in a note to members of the program.

The decision to end the affiliate program comes after the company last month announced a new marketing campaign aimed at recruiting more hosts to its service.

Airbnb launched the associates program in May 2020. The program pays travel bloggers and influencers a percentage of guest and host fees for Airbnb stays and experiences they recommend and link to on their websites and social media profiles.
