Please note that this FAQ is for Bookings received using the indie Booking Widget. Bookings received via indietravel.co /Shopify app/Integrations have separate payment terms.

Contracting with Guests

When you accept a booking request or receive a booking confirmation through the indie booking widget, you enter into a contract directly with the Guest. You are responsible for delivering the Tour or Activity under the terms and at the price specified. You also agree to pay applicable fees like indie’s commission fee (and applicable taxes) for each booking. indie via Bank Transfer will deduct amounts you owe from your payout unless you and we agree to a different method.
