All payments are executed through the Giggster platform and are processed by our third-party payment provider Stripe.

Renters will be charged in full as soon as you accept their booking request. At that point, the Giggster cancellation and refund policy takes effect.

The final payout will be deposited into your preferred bank account or sent by check and is processed within 7 days of the start of the shoot/event. For multi-day bookings, the payout is issued to the host on the last day of production/event. To set up direct deposits, please enter your account information at

If a renter stays at your location beyond the hours that they have reserved, you must let the Giggster team know about the overtime within 2 days of the last shoot date.
