Deskover Service Fees
To help Deskover run smoothly and to cover the costs of the products and services we provide, we charge a service fee when a booking is confirmed or when a subscription is purchased, anytime a transaction occurs on Deskover Platform.
We currently have a host-only fee, where only the host pays a service fee.
Host-only fee: the entire service fee is deducted from the host payout, and no Deskover service fee is paid by guests.
The host-only fee is 20% for Hosts with a Basic Subscription and is mandatory. This is calculated based on the price of the booking and is automatically deducted from the host’s payout. The host fee for Hosts with a Premium subscription is 0%.
The only amount that will be deducted from the host's payout are the service fees from payments providers, like Paypal or Stripe.
Currently Listing Fees are collected entirely by Deskover Payments. During the first week of the month following the invoicing period, the Host is responsible to issue an invoice to Deskover Sàrl. for the corresponding Host payout amount, that is calculated as follows:
Host Payout Amount = Total Listing Fees collected - Total Host Fees
Hosts can find here an explanation of how the "Payment Flow" works.
Premium Hosts can consult these amounts on their Member's profile page .
We currently do not charge a guest service fee.
VAT charges on service fees
Depending on the laws of the jurisdiction involved, VAT may be charged on top of the host and guest service fee. The service fee will include these VAT charges when applicable.
