Commission used wisely

First, transform retail operating costs into third-party transaction fees. Remaining profits are then shared evenly between Joystic and the Host.

You bring the customers, we facilitate purchases and provide in-trip support.

Frequently asked questions

Why should my business become a Host?

Becoming a Host means helping your customers like never before. Our industry-first travel assistant will impress travellers and make your brand more profitable. Sell travel without the risk of running a travel desk. The Joystic mission is to help tourism work smarter and keep revenue in local business.

How is Joystic different to other travel apps?

Joystic is not a direct to consumer brand. We rely on our network of Hosts to share our app for travellers to use. This model ensures our distribution costs are reinvested in tourism, not wasted on paid ads. We also design systems to help suppliers, not just sell their products.

How do I get my customers using Joystic?

Travellers need your Host Code in order to access the travel assistant. Depending on your customer journey, this should be shared at the most impactful time across any medium - booking confirmation, email, front desk or in-trip word of mouth.

How much can I earn as a Host?

Hosts earn a commission on all products sold through their travel assistant. Commissions vary depending on supplier product but you can expect to earn approximately 5% of gross purchases. The more you sell, the more you earn. If there are products your customers want to buy that aren't currently on Joystic, please let us know.
