  • Unpublishing Properties: If you no longer want to list a property on Hopper, unpublish the property from the Boost Partner Network or from the Boost-Hopper channel.

Reservations and Payment

  • Payment Details: As Hopper is the merchant of record, Hopper will charge the guest directly for the reservation. Hopper will charge the nightly rate, mandatory fees, and taxes that are set up for Hopper in your PMS & Boost.

  • Taxes: Hopper does not remit taxes on your behalf, the tax amount will be included in your payout.

  • Payout method: You can adjust the payout method via the Hopper Host Portal by going to Settings -> Payout method.

  • ACH (bank transfer): Change the payout to ACH and follow the instructions to add your bank details and tax information to our payout service Trolley. At this time one bank account can be added per Hopper account. The ability to add multiple bank accounts will be coming soon. Payouts are done on the day after checkin and usually takes 1-3 business days to reach your bank account.

  • Security Deposits: Hopper does not collect security deposit. We recommend that you remove security deposit from Hopper in your PMS/CM (if possible) since Hopper already covers you for damages via Hopper Promise. If you decide to keep the security deposit (or unable to remove it), the guest will see on your listings “A security deposit of xx amount may be collected by the host separately”. If you decide to collect it, you will need to collect the guest card details separately.

  • Optional fees & Extra Charges: The only optional/opt-in fee that is supported on Hopper is the pet fee (up to one pet). If a guest wants to add an optional fee to their stay (eg. pool heating fee, barbecue fee, etc.), you can either collect the guest credit card directly and charge them for the extra item or you can request an upcharge in the Hopper Host portal by clicking on the three dots next to the reservation. Include reason for upcharge, amount and any screenshots of communication from guest where they requested the extra charge. Learn more about extra/Up charges here:
