Service Fees and Transaction Fees

If you are a host, when you create a listing for your lodging, a transaction fee will be calculated based on the listing price of the lodging. By finalizing the listing, you acknowledge and agree that the service charge displayed will be owed to Cozystay and deducted from the payment you will receive from Cozystay, in accordance with Cozystay’s then current payment and refund policies, which may be amended from time to time.

If you are a guest, when you reserve a listing on Cozystay, a service fee will be added to the listing price. Such service fee will be calculated as a percentage of the value of the lodging. By finalizing the reservation, you acknowledge and agree to Cozystay’s then current payment and refund policies. The service fee may be un-refundable when you cancel your reservation. Cozystay reserves the right to charge a foreign currency processing fee where applicable.

Taxes

Cozystay will offer no tax advice. Cozystay strongly recommends that a host seek independent tax advice in his/her local jurisdiction before listing on the Site.

Cozystay is not responsible to collect or remit any applicable local taxes in any other forms on behalf of the host.


Foreign Currency

However, depending on the geographic location, the currencies available for users to make and receive payments may be limited. In the event that the currency chosen by the user is not available for payment, a foreign currency conversion will be undertaken by your payment company or the third-party payment processor. Subject to your agreement with your payment company and third-party payment processor, a currency conversion fee may be applied to your transaction. The eventual payout amount may be different than the amount chosen when the user confirmed the booking. Such price differences and conversion fees are not controlled by or known to Cozystay. By choosing to book via Cozystay platform or otherwise using Cozystay’s services, you acknowledge and agree that Cozystay is not responsible or liable for any such price differences.
