What you charge for is up to you
As soon as your station is in the eCarUp backend, you can determine yourself how much users pay for energy and parking time. Some locations combine the two forms: For example, CHF 0.35 / kWh plus CHF 1.00 / hour.
In addition, you can make individual agreements with individual users about their charging tariffs. For example, you can specify which users should pay less (or more;) than others (e.g. employees or tenants). In our use cases you will find many different business models for the operation of charging infrastructure.
We receive 10% of every financial transaction. That means if someone charges you for CHF 5.-, CHF 0.50 goes to eCarUp. So keep this in mind when setting your prices. The fees help us to finance the product development and operation of the eCarUp platform. If you offer your charging station for free, there are no fees. Because 10% of CHF 0.00 is still CHF 0.00;). So your earnings are calculated from your prices minus our fee.

Add-ons for reporting and maintenance
While the basic functions such as billing and monitoring are free, you can also use additional functions such as extended reporting and maintenance for a small fee. These will be charged extra.
