All about being a benevolent Yoga host

A host is someone who creates virtual Yoga events using their own Yoga videos on the Virtual Yoga Events platform. There are a lot of details below involving payments, fees, taxes and restrictions that you should read in full if you are a host.

Membership

To become a host, simply apply for your online space with your invitation code to start your membership. When you join Virtual Yoga Events, you become part of the Virtual Yoga Events community.

Payments

As a host you may make your Yoga videos available as virtual yoga events on the platform, and we provide access to your rooms to your customers on a on-demand one-time ticket payment basis via our payment partner Stripe.

We also handle payments issues such as fraud, chargebacks and resolution of payments disputes.

We try to provide timely access to your funds, generally payouts take place within one week, but you may occasionally experience delays in accessing your funds. We may also block or hold payments for violations of our policies or for compliance reasons, including collecting tax reporting information. When payments are delayed or blocked we try to communicate the reason to you promptly. If you have questions about a payments block, please reach out to us. In order to protect hosts, we may block guest payments if we believe them to be fraudulent.

Sometimes activities like refunds can put your account balance into the negative. If your balance becomes negative then we reserve the right to recover those funds from future payments.

Fees

As a host there’s only one type of fee associated with your membership on Virtual Yoga Events: the platform fee for ticket purchases.

  • The ticket payment processing fee is 15% plus €1 per successful pledge.
