Airbnb take two separate commissions. As an owner you only see the small (approx 3.5%) commission that you are charged so on the face of it, it looks like Airbnb are cheaper than However, the guest has to pay 14% more which you don't see. I only found out the commission rate by asking guests who had complained the price was too high. I phoned Airbnb and they wouldn't tell me the rate, they said it was confidential information between them and the guests!

We pay 18% to be a preferred partner and payments are made as a lump sum in the month following the booking.

I hope that helps,
