What is Community Support Platform?

The Community Support Platform (CSP) team ensures that our community (guests and hosts) can get help when they need it. For situations where users can solve problems on their own, we try to arm them with all the relevant information and tools. For situations that require assistance from our support agents ("ambassadors"), we try to route them to the right agent for the given problem, and to empower that agent to solve the issue quickly. When something goes wrong, a fast and fair resolution can determine whether you'll choose to book with Airbnb again. Being efficient here is not only good for customers, it helps to make our business profitable.
