It is free to create an Awayco store. Awayco works on a commission model, charging a percentage per booking depending on the volume of transactions per month. Read more about pricing here.
The Awayco software includes the customer-facing Shopfront, the Admin app to oversee your store and inventory, and the Shop app to manage reservations.
The percentage of sales is calculated by the volume of transactions per month, starting with 10% per transaction (+ processing fees) and no minimum required number of transactions. The more transactions undertaken the lower the percentage taken by Awayco.
Awayco offers three different pricing structures depending on how many transactions per month a store makes. Stores move automatically to higher tiers (and better pricing!) as they increase their transaction volume.
No, Awayco provides a shopfront with a custom domain name free of charge.

Stores can set their rental terms and conditions, including damage policy using the Awayco software. If a customer damages a rental, it is quick and easy to charge for repairs and temporarily remove the damaged product from the inventory.
Customers can manage reservations by logging into their account on the Shopfront and clicking on the reservation details. Stores can manage reservations on a customer's behalf using the Admin app.
Reservations can be cancelled up to 48 hours before without any fee. If cancelled within 48 hours before the booking, customers will be charged 50% of the booking. If cancelled within 24 hours of the reservation, customers will be charged the full amount of the booking.
