Cubbi Service Fees

Owner Fees

We charge owners a service fee (including taxes) every time rent is paid on Cubbi. The amount of the Cubbi service fee is 2% including GST. The Cubbi service fee is calculated from the total rent transacted and is automatically deducted from the payout to the owner. 

The Service Fee is only applicable to rent payments. For example, if a tenant pays an invoice for water through Cubbi there is no service fee, the full amount will go into the owner's bank account.

If the tenant pays rent directly to the owner outside Cubbi, Cubbi will charge the Service Fee when manually recording the rent payment in Cubbi. The Service Fee will be automatically deducted from the owner's credit card. If no credit card details are stored the owner will be sent an invoice with 14 day payment terms.
