11.1 Listings may operate on a Pay Per Booking basis, where the subscription listing fee is waived and you are charged 9% of the booking total for Classic packages, 12% of the booking total for Silver packages, and 15% of the booking total for Gold packages (the Commission). The commission will be charged on all accepted booking requests.
11.2 You may either accept or decline Pay Per Booking booking requests. If you decline the request, no confirmation of booking will be sent to the renter. The commission will not be charged on booking requests that are declined or cancelled before the date of the stay. Trade Me has the discretion to refund Commission charged on bookings on a case by case basis.
11.3 Commission will be calculated based on the applicable published rental rate on Holiday Houses at the time the booking request is placed.
11.4 If we believe you are using the renter contact information in a booking request or our messaging service to complete a booking request offline with renters directly so that you can avoid paying our commission, we may charge you the commission payable for the duration of the stay indicated by the renter when they made the booking request.
Repeated failure to respond to booking requests may result in the removal of your listing.
11.5 Holiday Houses may keep listings with unpaid subscription advertising fees online. Renters may still make enquiries on these houses, but Holiday Houses will not forward these enquiries to you until you either purchase a new subscription listing or select a Pay Per Booking option.
11.6 If you accept a booking for your property off the Holiday Houses website (e.g., where a person contacts you directly after seeing your listing on Holiday Houses), commission for accepted, or deemed accepted, booking requests will be invoiced at the end of the month in which the stay occurred. This invoice must be paid within 30 days following the date of the invoice. Any disputes relating to Commission charged must be raised within 15 working days of the booking request being sent.
