Frequently Asked Questions
Why list a space on Spacefy?
Any space can be a creative space:
- Perhaps you have a location that could be used for an event, a photoshoot, film production, performance, workshop, meetup, recording, rehearsal, or whatever else you can think of.
- Spacefy gives you an easy way to list your space and generate additional revenue. Some examples include:
  • Homes that are empty during the day.
  • Restaurants during hours they are closed/off peak or booking out reserved sections.
  • Bars that are closed during the week..
  • Offices and boardrooms that can be used for meetings,shoots or events.
  • - Renting out spaces during these “downtime” periods could equal some additional money for spots that are just “sitting there” anyway.
    - Make additional money: Projects can range in value anywhere from $25/hour to $10,000/day.
    - It’s free to list: We only make money when you do. A small fee is charged on completed bookings only.

    How can I promote my space?
    Your space will be on our platform which is targeted at the very people who are looking for spaces like yours. There are a few things you can do to optimize your visibility and make sure your listing really stands out:
    1-Share your Spacefy listing link on your various social media pages and with anyone who may find it useful.
    2-Share with us your upcoming events, notable visits and appearances, shows, space improvements, promotions, etc. We can use this as part of our marketing campaigns and share via our dedicated social media identities. Email us at collaborate@spacefy.it
    3-Take some good quality photos of the space. Bright colourful photos of the space that are free from any clutter tend to perform best. Remember to focus on the space as a whole. Highlighting accents is nice, but try and give people a good idea about the size, layout and feel of the space.
    How much are booking fees?
    Spacefy booking fees are derived from a combination of commission fees and processing fees. These fees are deducted from the total amount of a successful booking. The fees are:
    7.5% as a processing fee from creators/renters: This is charged on top of the booking amount.
    7.5% commission from space owners/hosts: Commission is deducted from booking amount to be paid out.
    For example, if the total booking amount is $100 the person booking the space would pay $107.50 and the space owner would receive $92.50.
