Add an optional rate mark-up
Add your desired mark-up to cover:

  1. The HomeAway commission of 3.3%, and

NOTE - YesBookit has a handy calculator to figure out what this percentage should be, so contact us if you need help at this point. The above mark-up of 3.42%, for example is to cover just the 3.3% HomeAway commission.
