How much is Meowtel's commission rate?
We have a 4-tiered approach to sitter commissions. Sitters who consistently provide excellent service and win over more repeat clients will benefit most.
Our commission structure is based on your total reservation earnings with each client:
- Tier 1: 30% commission for any client from whom you have earned $0-$299.
- Tier 2: 25% commission for any client from whom you have earned between $300-$999.
- Tier 3: 20% commission for any client from whom you have earned between $1,000-$2,999.
- Tier 4: 15% commission for any client from whom you have earned over $3,000.
These commission tiers apply to a sitter's base rate and holiday surcharge. For example, if your 20-minute rate is $30 and your holiday surcharge is set at 30%, a 20-minute visit on December 25th with a brand new client will result in you taking home $27.30:
- Base rate: $30.00
- Holiday surcharge: 30% x $30 = $9.00
- Total price: $39.00
Meowtel's commission @ Tier 1: 30%
Your Earnings: $39.00 - ($39.00 x 30%) = $39.00 - $11.70 = $27.30
Please note that tips are not counted towards client earning calculations since they are already commission-free. You can always check up on your commission tier progress with each client by taking the following steps:
Visit your Clients screen on Meowtel.com or in the mobile app
In the upper right corner, sort by Earnings or double click on the Earnings column to re-sort the table
