What's an awesome storage tool that rhymes with Tennessee and sweet tea? Administration Fee! But in all seriousness, charging an admin fee is an effective way to offset some of the administrative costs that you have as a self storage operator.
You may be asking yourself, "How do I make sure I get one of those shiny admin fees on my site?" Well we're here to show you how to do just that!
Create an Admin Fee in SiteLink
First, you will need to create an administration fee in SiteLink. You'll do so by going into SiteLink: Company>Setup>Charges
Once the admin fee has been created, you'll want to make sure that the column that says Used has an X by it. This means you are setup to use that administration fee for rentals once you enable it:
Enable Admin Fee
Once you have created the administration fee in SiteLink, you will need enable that fee so the charge will be added to rentals at move in: Company>Setup>Program defaults>Move In
Make sure the checkbox to Charge the default Administrative Fee at move in is checked:

Pro Pug Tip: We auto-sync with your SiteLink four times a day: 10am, 1pm, 4pm, and 9pm. When you make changes in SiteLink between any of those sync times, the changes will be reflected on the website once the next auto-sync completes. However, you can also contact our Client Success team and we can do a manual sync to expedite the changes on the website.
