How does the eLands payment system work

Once you get a booking your clients pay the reservation deposit. This deposit is forwarded to you after 24 hours your tenant checks in. The money will appear in your Paypal or your bank account. The remaining payments come get directly from your clients either in person when they come to stay in your rental or via any other transaction that you both agree on. You will need to know that there will be a small charge of 3% on the deposit transaction to cover the bank transaction fees. Other than that eLands makes money when you make money so your clients contribute an additional 3% to 10% fee.

It is free to list your space on eLands however there is an option that you might want to choose which is an advertising monthly plan (to be implemented later)

If the reservation request is declined or expires eLands does not charge any fee.

If the reservation is accepted, the payment is processed and the tenant would be requested to pay the reservation deposit including the eLands commission fee which is 3% to 10% of the total amount. This money would be forwarded to eLands bank accounts where it will be held for 24 hours after the tenant (tourist) checks-in.  This method gives both parties peace of mind when it comes to cancellation and tenant refund policies. 24 hours after check in, if there are no issues with your client/s and s/he finds everything in order, the money will be forwarded to your bank / PayPal account less 3% of this amount due to bank transaction fees. Your will receive the remainder of the payment directly from your clients either in person when they come to stay in your rental or via any other transactions that both parties agree on.

Why is my Profile Picture Important?

We at eLands are sure you heard of the saying ‘’ A picture is worth a thousand words’’. It is no secret; the first thing your clients look at after they have a look at your listing is your profile picture. They will try to read your personality, way of life, culture, religion and more over they will be looking if you are a ‘’normal trustworthy person’’ all this will go through their mind in a second and they will make a quick judgment on whether to contact you or not.

We at eLands personally think that you don’t need a professional photographer to get a good picture of you. Infact we believe that this can be easily done by yourself and maybe with the help of some family or friends. To try help you get as much clients as your hart content we formulated a guide line to help those that like to get some pointers on how to get/ make a good profile picture.

What a Good Profile Photo needs to show:

1.      Has to be taken in the right lighting. If you’re taking the photo in your home first is to find a window in that provides good lighting and clear out any clutter that may be around. If your taking a picture outside make sure that there is not too much light that the viewer can’t see your face and eyes properly.

2.      Try taking a colorful photo. Most of the people love colures and being dull won’t give a good feeling to those looking for somewhere to have fun.

3.      Take a photo that screams your personality at its best and always smile.

4.     Try being original. Use your imagination, photography is an art and you will need to be creative. Don’t be boring, people are searching for those that are funny, joyful, kind and that give a warm welcoming feeling. Are you the night party type? Are you the loving family type? What you love doing best? All these questions can be useful in the creation of your unique profile picture.

   We suggest you ask some family or friends for their opinions. You will be amazed how much advice they can give you.
