Event planner service fee
GigSalad applies a small fee to every booking. Deposit and balance payments made through GigSalad are sent on to the vendor, so this service fee is the only revenue kept by GigSalad. We apply this fee in order to cover costs associated with collecting and administering payments, providing our Worry-Free Guarantee, and general maintenance to the site so it remains safe and easy to use.
The service fee is 4-8% of the total booking price. The percentage is a sliding scale offering a lower fee for larger bookings.
Where is the fee listed?
The service fee will be shown beside the total quote from the vendor in your message thread. Once you click Book Now and proceed to the payment page, you can click the Details dropdown to see a full payment breakdown including the service fee.
