Stay22 responds to the coronavirus crisis by improving commission rates to partners.

Montreal, Quebec, March 16th, 2020 In response to the current coronavirus crisis affecting both the event and travel industry, Stay22 has decided to stand up and support its partners. The Montreal startup has recently announced that they will give back 100% of their commission to all new partners joining their solution, and a 20% bump to existing partners. With this initiative Stay22 aims to give back to the community and individuals that helped shape it in recent years.

Andrew Lockhead, CEO of Stay22 commented: “Our team has been proactively looking for solutions to support our partners but also the general public facing the coronavirus crisis. We thought increasing the commissions we give our partners would help them recover a fraction of their financial losses due to event and booking cancellations. We’re aiming to help them as best as we can with the resources we have. Interestingly enough, it’s in these moments of crisis where we have to hold on tight (virtually) and find creative solutions for ourselves and our community. To us, this is the perfect opportunity to show our partners, who are the ones that make it possible for us to exist, how grateful we are to have them. We hope that through this action our partners can enjoy some calm in the middle of all this chaos.”

Basically, all the new partners integrating Stay22 and using its interactive map will enjoy this offer, until at least May 31th 2020. As per the current partners, the Stay22 team will be automatically bumping their commission into their platform. This change will be effective as of today, March 16th. New and current partners will be able to track bookings and commission using the Stay22 dashboard. As mentioned by its CEO this is all part of an initiative designed to help their partners, both current and future, feel a bit more calm during such trying times, hence the hashtag for this action #StaySafeWithStay22.

“In the next few days, our team will be pushing new features to better support partners, travelers and local communities in these tougher times. We’ll be communicating those through emails and social media, so stay tuned”, adds Lockhead.
