How much does Tempo cost?

Tempo is free to list on or search.  Tempo charges a 10% service fee to space owners and 4% to space seeker.  These fees are derived from the subtotal of the booking: the complete price of the reservation before service fees. 

Example: Sara lists her extra boardroom at her small office for booking on Tempo based on availability.  Leo rents the boardroom for a full day at the listed booking rate of $100.  

Leo pays: $104 (including %4 service fee), $14 of which goes to Tempo as a service fee. Sara earns: $90.

 

These marginal fees cover website hosting, maintenance, advertising, secure transactions and more.
