Does everyone else see this across the world?
The timing of announcing the pilot test for 12% commission fees is a bit…timely…(that was recent news)
And funny how Air keeps reducing the amount for the lowest percentage. From six percent, to five percent, and now down to zero. Why zero…will there be an option to pay full commission and no service fee?
Guest service fees
"When a reservation is confirmed, we charge guests a service fee between 0% and 20% of the reservation subtotal. Guests see this fee on the checkout page before they book a reservation.
In areas where we’re required to collect VAT, well combine the service fee and VAT amounts on the checkout page, so the service fee may appear to be greater than 20%.
Guest service fees are calculated using a variety of factors including, but not limited to, the reservation subtotal, the length of the reservation, and characteristics of the listing. In general, higher reservation subtotals have lower guest service fee percentages."
