We’re excited to welcome you to the Bookyourday community as a host partner. Before we can activate your space on the marketplace, there are a few basic steps you’ll need to complete as part of the listing experience. These steps are in place to ensure hosts like yourself are prepared for success and ready to receive bookings right away.

What you’ll need along the way:

  • Basic information about your space
  • At least four high-quality photos of your space
  • Friendly profile photo of yourself
  • Some information to verify your identity
  • Your banking information for booking payouts

What are the requirements for live listings ?


All bookings and payments take place on the Bookyourday platform, following our payment process. Guests are charged 30% when you accept their booking and the remaining 70% a week before the booking day.


The best listings have 10+ photos and a floor plan to show off the space in its entirety. You need at least 4 high-quality landscape (horizontal) photos to go live. Make sure you have the rights to your photos, which cannot include watermarks or explicit references to the business or venue name.


Your listing should clearly highlight the square footage, layout, capabilities and ideal uses of your space that relate to the activity you are listed under, while also detailing any restrictions that would impact a guest’s decision to book.

What should be in my Host Rules ?

How do I charge a cleaning fee when guests book my space ?

As a host, you are responsible for cleaning your space after each booking and preparing it for future use. Guests are encouraged to tidy up and be respectful of your space and personal belongings during the booking, but understand that they are not responsible for basic upkeep and removal of trash.

Many hosts include their cleaning costs in their hourly rate because they know that guests prefer a single, all-inclusive price. Other hosts have chosen to take advantage of Bookyourday’s Cleaning Fee pricing. You have the option to set a flat cleaning fee (separate from your hourly rate) that will be automatically added to every booking. Cleaning fees are intended to help you account for extra costs required to prepare your space for your next booking.

How long does it take for listings to go live ?

Once you have submitted your listing(s) and accepted the Hosting Policies, it generally takes 24-72 hours (excluding weekends and holidays) for a member of our Onboarding team to review and set your listing(s) live on the Bookyourday marketplace. While waiting for an update on your listing review, we recommend reviewing the requirements to go live here to ensure that you have met all the criteria to list.

What are my Operating Hours ?

Operating hours are the days and hours of the week that your space is open to host bookings (i.e. your general availability). For example, if your space does not accept bookings on the weekends, you can mark those as unavailable using the operating hours feature.

Keeping accurate operating hours will help you save time and convert more bookings by pre-qualifying guests.

What is instant book ?

Instant book is a listing feature that hosts can activate, allowing guests to automatically book your space without waiting for host approval. Not to worry, Hosts will always be given at least a 24 hour lead time for all instant bookings. You will still need to accept any booking requests made within 24 hours of the booking start time.

What should my base rate be ?

Your base rate should be the most commonly booked price. We recommend the base rate includes all listed amenities, any costs required to book the space, and cleaning. Keep in mind your minimum hour requirement when choosing a base rate. The total payout based on these two factors should make sense for you and your space, keeping in mind Bookyourday’s 10% service fee.

As a new host, we recommend pricing your space competitively based on what you see booking nearby on Bookyourday. Once you have a few glowing reviews under your belt, use them as leverage to bump up your price and find your sweet-spot.

How do I set rates for specific days of the week or times of day ?

We understand that many hosts have variations to their hourly base rate. With the calendar pricing feature, you can set rates for specific days of the week and times of day. Common calendar rates include a discounted weekday rate or weekend rate after 5pm.

Once you set your calendar rates, guests will see them during checkout on your listing when inputting the start and end time of their booking. If a guest uses the availability filter to search for your space, the associated variable rate will display on your listing in search results as well.

How should I price my space ?

The key to turning inquiries into bookings on Bookourday is transparent and all-inclusive hourly pricing. Our guests have told us that the reason they prefer Bokyourday is because they understand upfront what is included with the space and the total amount it will cost–– no hidden fees, no negotiating, and no-hassle bookings. Hosts who make booking their space simple via accurate pricing earn the most on Bookyourday.

Pricing requirements for your listing(s):

  • Minimum number of hours required to book
  • Summary of all amenities that come with the space in the Amenities section
  • Amenities and costs required to book are included in your hourly rate
  • List of attendee tiers and variable rates in your listing description
