Do you have a balcony, terrace, rooftop or indoor space with amazing views? Are you interested in sharing it with an enthusiastic community of worldwide view-lovers? Viewnary gives you the opportunity to do so – all while earning an extra buck for that well-deserved dream vacation or gift. If you’re interested in hosting, or are already a Host, check out our guide below to learn more. 

Becoming a Host is free 

First things first: registering as a Host and listing your space is completely free of charge. We guarantee that there are no hidden fees – we cherish our amazing Host community and are transparent with our payment process. We take a flat percentage “Viewnary fee” from every booking you receive, and that’s it. No additional cleaning fees and other nasty surprises that other hosting platforms give you. The Viewnary fee allows us to continually improve the platform, boost customer support and enhance your entire experience.

What price should you charge your Guests? 

What price you set is entirely your choice: you charge and hourly price per Guest. For example, setting a price of $50 per Guest means each Guest will pay $50 per hour he/she booked. You may choose to include some extras for that price, like a welcome glass of prosecco. 

Keep in mind the costs you have, what other Hosts in your area are charging, the applicable tax rates, and the fact that Guests pay a Service fee on top of the price you set.

When do you receive your payout?

Our payments are processed via our third-party payment provider, Stripe. You will receive your payout within 7 days after the termination of a Viewing.

We may withhold a payout for longer than 7 days if: 

  • A Viewing has been canceled by you or has not been carried out for any other reason that lies within your control; 

  • A payment from a Guest has potentially originated from a fraudulent payment method, for which the payout may be withheld for up to 90 days after the termination of a Viewing. 

Stripe will issue the payout to your bank account on our behalf. For more information on payouts, visit the “Payouts” section of our Host FAQs.

To sum it up, we’ve made it as easy and hassle-free as possible to register your Listing and set prices. Setting up a Host account is easy and free, and you have total control over what you want to charge your Guests. Don’t miss out - it’s time to get started!
