Product Tips

Booking Fees

Fees for booked business from event packages are waived through the end of the year.  Beginning January 1, 2012, booking fees from packages will be 5% of the package deposit amount.*  There is no cost to include packages on your listing and promote them to visitors to our site.  You only pay the booking fee after you accept and confirm a booking.

* $10 mimimum fee applies.

Display Deposit Only on Packages

You have the option with your packages to display only the deposit amount.  The package price will not be shown to the planner.  However, most planners will prefer to see the both the deposit amount and the package price so they can make an informed decision.
