How to set up partner feature on your website?

Who are Partner?

Partner features are a helpful tool for people and groups who want to offer their services on your website. Your users who buy your membership package can move up to the partner level, which provides them with a range of benefits as below:

  1. They can list their services on your website. Partners can tell potential customers about their hotels, restaurants, car rental services, and other travel-related services. This lets them reach out to more people and grow their business.
  2.  They can manage their own profiles on your website. This includes changing the information about their company, adding pictures and descriptions of their services, and responding to reviews from customers. Partners can improve their online presence and build trust with potential customers if they keep their profiles up to date.
  3. They can keep track of their bookings on your website. With this tool, partners can see what reservations they have coming up, see if there are rooms available for future bookings, and manage their occupancy rates. Partners can make better plans for their operations and avoid overbooking if they have access to this information.

The first option is the Free Package, which costs $0 and allows for up to 3 items to be uploaded. However, a 10% commission fee is charged.

The Basic Package costs $80 and allows for up to 20 items to be uploaded, while still maintaining the 10% commission fee.

The Premium Package costs $100 and allows for up to 60 items to be uploaded, while still maintaining the same commission fee.

The Pro Package costs $180 and allows for up to 100 items to be uploaded, with the same 10% commission fee.

Each package has a different price and upload limit, which can be adjusted on Theme Settings.

Withdrawing Partner Earning

  • To withdraw the partner’s earnings, they must have their balance on Partner Dashboard

For example, they made $633 this month but their balance is $569.70 after a 10% commission fee is deducted. This is calculated by subtracting the commission fee from the total earnings: 633 – (633 x 10% commission) = $569.70
