The commission structure explained

Every product or service on HelloEcho can be offered by a business with or without a commission for promoters. In this way businesses can choose to pay promoters to use their megaphone to make sure their offer is seen by the general public. Some businesses choose to offer commission and some don’t, you can see your offers on the Promotions page.

Commission split between promoters

When a commission is applicable and an order is made, we use a commission split to ensure that everyone involved in the transaction is paid for their part of the work involved.

The fundamental split is 50/50, but we share up to 80% of our half.

We have fundamentally setup the commission split to be 50/50 between the direct referrer and HelloEcho. However, we share a significant part of our commission with referrers other than the direct referrer in order to make sure that we adequately recognize the work done that was part of making the order happen. See more in the specific sections below and in this overview inforgaphic:


The boxes show the relative size of each commission element. Together they make up 100% of the commission offered per booking of the service or product recommended.

Direct commission – 50%

Direct commission is the classic sales commission. It can be earned when a booking is made through a recommendation, and commission applies. The creator of the recommendation can then get what we call direct commission.

Echo commission – 15%

Echo commission is an indirect commission earned when a booking with commission is made through what we call an echo of a recommendation. An echo is a copy of another persons recommendation. So, as an example, if person “A” makes a recommendation and person “B” also wants to recommend the same place, then person “B” may decide to copy the recommendation made by person “A” instead of making his/her own recommendation. Person “B” can copy the recommendation with 1 click on the echo button. In this way person “B” can quickly recommend a place and show this recommendation to all his/her followers. When a follower of person “B” on the profile page of person “B” makes a booking of the recommendation then person “A” may be able to get echo commission. The echo commission percentage is 15% of the offered commission. If you are really good at making beautiful images and captivating text, then echo commission can be a big part of your earnings on HelloEcho since other big creators may echo your recommendation to their followers, enabling you to get echo commission on many bookings.

User commission – 15%

The user referral program enables a promoter to get a larger share of the total commission when they refer new users to the site. When a new user is signed up via clicking the “follow” button on your public profile, we register this user as referred by you, and you will earn a share of the HelloEcho commission on all bookings made by this user up to 1 year after signup.

Creator commission – 5% for inviter & invitee

Our ambassador referral program enables a social media creator to get creator commission when they refer new creators to the site. When a new creator is signed up via clicking the “follow” button on your public profile, we register this creator as referred by you, and you will earn a share of the HelloEcho commission on all bookings directly referred by this creator up to 1 year after signup. Creator commission is 5% of the offered commission but is paid to both the inviting creator and the invited creator.
