HostRooster's Affiliate Program operates on a commission-based model. Here's how commissions are paid out:
Commission Rate: Affiliates can earn a 2.5% commission for each completed booking made by their referrals. This commission is calculated based on the booking subtotal, excluding any security deposit (if applicable).
Recurring Commission: Affiliates also have the opportunity to earn a significant 50% recurring commission for each host they refer who purchases a HostRooster pro pricing plan. This commission is calculated after deducting the host's credit card transaction fees from the pricing plan amount.
Cookie Life: HostRooster's affiliate tracking uses a 30-day cookie life. This means that if a user clicks on your affiliate link and completes a booking within 30 days, you'll earn your commission.
As for the timing of commission payouts:
Confirmation: Commissions are typically confirmed within 60 days after the guest checks out of the property. This confirmation process ensures that the booking has been completed successfully.
Note on Security Deposits: If a holding deposit has been taken for an accommodation booking, the final commission will be adjusted following the refund of the deposit at the end of the booking. This adjustment ensures that the commission accurately reflects the completed booking
