When you book experiences for your clients on the Travel Agent Platform, you earn commission on every product on our site. Now, you can track your bookings and the commission associated with each in your agent profile under the “Remittance Advice” tab of the “Finance” section of your account.
Finding your commission payout (remittance) reports
Before you get started, make sure that you or your admin has completed the account and added payout details. Without a complete account or payout details, we will be unable to process commission payments. If you’ve done that, proceed with the following steps:
Select the “Payouts” tab to view your payout information
From here, you’ll be able to download your monthly commission payout (remittance) reports. When you download reports, you’ll be able to see all the important details. Below is an example of a remittance report:
A few notes about how to read reports:
This number will be used if you need to call our customer service line for help. This number references that specific booking you’ve made and will help us quickly identify which booking you are calling about.
TRANSACTION_AMOUNT and DECIMALS
“TRANSACTION_AMOUNT” represents the total price paid for that product and the “DECIMALS” field represents the amount of decimal places you have to move (from right to left). For example, a “TRANSACTION_AMOUNT” of 5097 would indicate that a total price of $50.97 was paid for that product.
This is the code we use to identify specific products on our site. If you ever want to find a product listing page, all you have to do it copy and paste the code into the search bar on travelagents.viator.com and the listing will appear.
When you book experiences for your clients in the Travel Agent Platform, you earn commission on every product on our site. Now, you can track your bookings and the commission associated with each in your agent profile under the Bookings and Commission tab. You’ll notice an additional column in the report called “Booking Type” – the booking will be noted as either direct or indirect. Indirect bookings are coming from the custom link now available on the platform, read more about this feature here

Your commission is paid the month following the client’s travel date and you’ll get an email notification when it’s been paid. For more information on commission and payments, see this article.
Deciphering Reports: Indirect and Direct Bookings
You’ll be able to see which bookings came from your Bookable Link or Widget in your “Bookings & Commission” report. Bookings made via the Bookable Link or Widget will be labeled as “indirect.”
To comply with privacy regulations, clients can choose not to send you booking details, but you will always be able to see the booking come through in your “Bookings & Commission” Report. We do recommend that your client shares their booking details with you.
Direct bookings are made by the travel agent on the travelagents.viator.com platform
Indirect bookings are made by your clients on viator.com using your bookable link or Widget
