All leads, enrolments, absences and bookings processed in any part by Vacancy.care are considered to be valid transactions on which Vacancy.care fees might be payable if not part of a fixed fee business plan, however there are no fees for simply posting general vacancy care availability.
Transaction Fee and Commission Services
If you use those Services which involve a success fee or commission, such as our extra bookings and absence services, then the following clauses apply:
Any absence or booking which is caused in whole or in part by Vacancy.care, online or offline, and which results in a Care Provider booking or revenue event, may result in a fee according to the Vacancy.care business plan that the Care Provider is a part of and calculated according to the settings in Vacancy.care.
Vacancy.care will charge the billing information on file, or at its discretion, issue an invoice for any fees which are not prepaid and the Care Provider agrees to pay Vacancy.care fees within 14 days and agrees that Vacancy.care invoices and records are sufficient evidence of the fees being due. In exceptional circumstances, or where specifically agreed in writing by Vacancy.care, these fees may be paid on a 30 day account, which in turn may delay payment of fees to families if this is relevant to the fee type.
With respect to any family supplied absences which are subsequently booked, Vacancy.care agrees to pay out a portion of the fees received to any validly confirmed family with a nominated payment account, who successfully registers their permanent place as an absence, which is subsequently booked through the Service and results in a genuine revenue event at arms length.

In addition, you authorize (or our third party payment processor) to charge your payment method for the total amount of your subscription fees (and applicable taxes and other charges). If the payment method cannot be verified, is invalid or is otherwise not acceptable, your account may be suspended until your payment is processed. You must resolve any problem we encounter in order to proceed.
