How much is the Service Fee?

The typical Service Fee is 6%.

The fee is assessed on top of your configured price.

What is the Service Fee assessed on?

The Service Fee is assessed on the sub-total before taxes & fees.

This means the Service Fee will decrease if coupons or discounts are applied to the reservation. Conversely, the Service Fee will increase if you have custom line items, add-ons, etc.

Who pays the Service Fee?

The Service Fee is paid by your Company.

Is the Service Fee assessed on all methods of payment (including cash)?

No. The Service Fee is only assessed on Online (Website) Credit Card Transactions. 

How are the Service Fees collected for deposits and split payments?

Service Fees are collected proportionally to the partial amount paid.

For example,

  • You have a reservation for $100 with a Service Fee of $6 (total price = $106)
  • Your Guest makes a deposit or split payment of $20.
  • Xola now determines the proportion of the payment to the full amount (i.e. how much is $20 out of $106). In this case, it comes out to 18.87% (20/106).
  • Xola then takes 18.87% of the $6 Service Fee, which comes out to $1.13.

Will my Guest see a Service Fee? 

When the Service Fee is configured to be paid by the Company, only the Company sees the fee; the Guest will never see a fee. The fee is deducted from the earnings of the Company and will be seen in your reporting under the Service Fee column. It is not shown in the Purchases Tab because it is not an additional fee added to the purchase, but rather a percentage deducted from the total that is reconciled via your payouts from Xola.
