Q: What advertisement methods can we choose?

A: Percentage:This is the default payment method. When a renter request to book your boat slip using your reservation calendar, they will pay a percentage of the listed transient slip rental price. Slip owners are asked to deduct this fee from the listed slip price. For example: Slip price minus TransientSlips.com online booking fee equals the amount paid to slip owner. Please note all rates and terms are negotiated on a case-by-case scenario. Though our default rate is 15% for smaller boat slips, TransientSlips.com’s rates can be negotiated as low as 5% for larger boat slips. You can also require additional deposits or fees.

Per transaction: Another option is a online booking fee. When a renter request to book your boat slip, we will charge them an online booking fee. This booking fee is negotiated between TransientSlips and you, the slip owner. For example: Slip price minus TransientSlips set online booking fee equals the price due at the slip location. You can also require additional deposits or fees.

Pay per click: In this scenario, your transient slip will have its own page with your contact information. If you have a website, there will be a link that directs potential slip renters to your website. Please note this option does not allow you to use our online reservation and booking calendar. When a potential renter clicks on your profile they will be directed to your website or directed to your TransientSlips.com page. When a renter clicks your profile/website you will be charged a negotiated fee.

Display Ad::Another option is to pay a monthly ad fee and receive a page with your transient slips information, price and direct contact information. Renters will be able to book through you rather than book with our reservation calendar. If you have a website we can add a link that directs potential renters there.

Q: How will transient slip owners get paid?

A: There are two options for owners to collect payment

Option 1: Owner collects payment. This is our default payment method. Transient slip owners collect payment directly from the renter. You are required to contact the renter and collect the remaining balance with whichever payment method you desire.

Option 2: TransientSlips.com collects payment. After your boat slip is reserved, we distribute the balance to you via check, wire transfer, PayPal, or Chase Bank Quick Pay.


Q: Can owners of the boat slip talk to potential customers before renting to them?

A: Yes, we recommended that you, the owner of the boat slip contacts the renter. We send all of the renter’s contact information via text and/or email. The renter is sent your contact information as well. We recommend contacting renters via email but when and if you decide to rent your transient slip to them, we advise that you have their phone number in case of emergencies.


Q: What if the transient slip is not available when renters reserve it?

A: Although this will most likely not be an issue, if you cannot satisfy the customer, all online booking fees will be refunded. Please keep in mind that renters will be rating your services.
