Commission Rates for Service Marketplace Platforms

Applico specializes in platform research. This is our first free data insight for service marketplaces’ commission rates. Every time you hail an Uber, request an Airbnb, or schedule a Handy professional the platform takes a cut of the transaction. Some platforms are more greedy than others but as a rule of thumb, a commission of 15-20% is standard in service marketplaces. However, some service marketplaces don’t do commissions at all but rather make consumers buy virtual currency or charge a fixed fee.
