How our fees work:

Your payout will be your rental price minus the commission service fee. (Typically 15% + VAT).

Please note we charge commission on the full booking amount.


Example: a 5-night reservation with a nightly rate of R1000 and a R250 cleaning fee.

Subtotal: (5 X R1000) + R250 = R5250

(The price of R5250 is displayed to the guest)


Commission service fee: R895.70  (15% + vat X R5250)

Your Earnings: R4354.30 (R5250 - R895.70)


Please make sure to check commission settings in your Login Area under the CommBoost page for accurate calculations. The above example is based on commission charged at 15% + vat.

Here are some common reasons that may impact the amount of your payout:

  • You have Premium pricing for certain days
  • Your Seasonal pricing for certain periods of the year.
  • You should include all costs in your pricing settings whenever possible.
  • Our system only processes whole numbers and rounds to the nearest whole amount.
  • Depending on the country of residence of the host or guest, VAT on the service fees may be included as an additional amount over and above the total Accommodation Direct service fee.


To change the price of an accepted reservation, you will need to alter the reservation with your guest.
