Affiliates

Simply sign up here. We will review it and send you the access information to your account of affiliation.  Once you have been registered, you will have access to our affiliate extranet. You will be able to generate reservations in “My account” or even insert a URL, banner, or a search box if you have a website. Any reservation that comes from your part will be tracked in real time to your account, and your commission will then be generated.
Absolutely nothing. When a reservation through one of the registered URLs is registered, Only-apartments will manage it. The customer who has reserved from the affiliate webpage will receive the confirmation of the reservation and all other contacts details necessary.
In case a reservation is cancelled, you will still receive your affiliate commission.
You simply must add all your websites in the list of URLs, in “My account”. Insert a link for the format you wish to have in each website. All reservations that go through one of your websites will start to register when we activate your account. There are no limits: you can add as many websites as you like.

The percentage of your commission is calculated according to the amount that the customer pays at the moment of making the booking (which is our commission, VAT not included). We establish a progressive scale in which the commission rises as your websites generate more bookings. After reaching a certain level of commission, the percentage remains the same and it is applied to all the following reservations you receive, until you accumulate the number of bookings that are necessary to increase the commission. The percentages are shown in the following table:

Number of reservations per month Your commission Example (booking amount 150 euros*)
0-50 35% 52,50 euros
51-150 38% 57 euros
151-500 41% 61,50 euros
+501 45% 67,50 euros
 

*Remember: the booking fee is the Only-apartments commission, not the total amount of the rent that the customer pays. The percentage of your commission will be calculated over the booking fee.

The commissions are paid only through PayPal and according to the following criteria:
  • Commissions are paid monthly once reaching the minimum of 50€. In case the minimum is not reached, the payment will be added to the following month.
  • In case of 4 consecutive months of not reaching the minimum of 50€, the corresponding amount will be paid.
  • Commissions are recorded at the end of the month and are paid over the following month from the 5th day. For example, if during the month of February there are reservations that add up to 150€ of commission, these will be paid throughout the month of March from the 5th day.
 
In the “Invoice” tab you can view all charged, dismissed, and overdue commissions. In the “Reservations” tab you will see all commissions that are pending for billing.
It is not necessary. We put together the bills of the affiliates and send them by email so that you can archive them. You will always have the possibility of downloading the bill from the “Invoice” tab.

Yes, you can put as many links, banners or search boxes as you desire, but it´s important not to overload a web page with a lot of elements (one of each the maximum). Besides, it is advisable to place them in strategic areas of the page to boost traffic visits. Specifically, it is desirable to locate the elements in the following zones:
  • Header of the webpage
  • Body of the page, as long as it is not necessary to use the scroll-bar of the mousse to visualize it.
  • If you have a search zone, it is advisable to add it to this zone.

You should choose the country that corresponds to the city and select the right language.  Later, you should look for the city in the list and use the link or link + banner.
If Only-apartments does not display the location you desire, we advise you to choose the country where the city is located.
Check you have copied the entire HTML and that you have not changed the names of the tags (uppercase, lowercase, etc.) Also check that the space allocated in your webpage corresponds with the dimensions attributed to the box.
