HomeAway adding Pay Per Booking Model

as I predicted long ago…..the fools that are vacation rental owners and managers will sign up in droves, even though it will cost them 3 to 4x what an annual flat paid listing would cost.

I guess I need to start offering pay per booking as a model on Lodgix? Since it seems vacation rental owners and managers are so happy to throw their money away….I can see it now, “All Lodgix subscriptions are now FREE! Pay just 3% of all bookings!”

I am sure I would get a ton of new customers as a result…but I just can’t do it.  I simply think that pay for performance is a dirty model that takes advantage of what Rush Limbaugh calls the “low information voter”.

Please enlighten me where a model like this is a good deal for the subscriber?
