Smily Owner Service Plan
Is there a free trial available for Smily Owner?
Yes, registering on Smily and creating your property listing is free. Our aim is win-win partnerships. We only charge a percentage fee when you receive a booking. 

We don’t provide a demo of the Smily Owner plan, but you can book a call and ask us anything. 😊
How much are the service fees?
To cover our operating costs, we charge a service fee of just 9% (10.8% TTC) for the Smily Owner service plan--that includes the payment gateway fees, which are between 3-5%, depending on the provider.

(The per-rental fees for the Smily Business and Smily Manager plans will begin at the end of the first month.)
What are channel commission fees?
Online Travel Agencies (OTAs) generally charge a commission of 15-20% on each reservation. To make your life easier, we manage the costs of the commissions taken by each platform and add them to your rental amount so that the traveler has the adjusted price. For example, you want 100€ per night, you will receive 100€. (The traveler will pay the additional platform costs.)
Who can host?
It’s easy to become a Smily service host if you’re listing your property in Euros 💶. We currently support only EUR bank accounts from banks providing an IBAN, and rentals located only in countries using EUR as their official currency.

Entire apartments or homes, villas, treehouses, and even castles are just a few of the properties owners have shared on Smily.
How do damage deposits work?
Property owners can request damage deposits from guests. Smily Damage Deposits (by Swikly) help cover any potential damage caused by a guest and offer reassurance that your property will be treated respectfully.

At this time, the security amount is standardized depending on the property size. Liability in the event of a dispute: Smily. For more information, see Smily Damage Deposit (by Swikly).
Do I need a “Carte-G” on Smily Owner Plan?
You don’t need a Carte-G (carte-de-gestion) for the Smily Owner plan, nor the Smily Software (formerly BookingSync), even if you’re hosting in France. If you don't know what that is, don’t worry.

(Smily Business & Manager plans: yes, you would--if you’re hosting in France, at least until further notice.)
