You can use commission calculations to decide how revenue is shared between you (the property manager) and owners. You can set a default calculation to apply to all of your listings or set up a specific calculation for certain listings or reservations.

When you set up your commission calculation formula, you use placeholders such as fare_accommodation and channel_commission. You can read the full list of placeholders below, and see some examples of formulas here.
