I am new to my profession, or I’m afraid of charging too much. Are there any limitations on how low I can go?
Starting anything new is hard, and we want to make sure Hosts have a chance to be as successful with Symposium as they can be. We have done our best to give you great flexibility in your pricing decisions by keeping our fees as low as possible, and setting minimums accordingly. However, every time you Host a SymTalk or SymGram, there are costs incurred for the underlying technology. This means that if you price your offers very low we can’t cover our costs through the standard fee, and will have to pass the costs on to you—something we strive to avoid. If you’re new, we suggest looking at listings being offered in your categories, then consider pricing yours competitively with them. It probably isn’t necessary to charge prices so low that everyone loses money, and it probably doesn’t fit into your business plan.
You can list extremely inexpensive offers, but if you charge too little, we will have to charge extra costs to you. Think about it— your time is probably worth more than you think.
