Hosting an experience has never been so easy
What is Experimnt?
Experimnt is a platform that gives the opportunity to locals to share their passion with other people around them, and to generate revenue from it.
Why become an Experimnt host?
Earn money doing what you love
Many have told you that you have an amazing talent? Being good at what you do is great, but why not also making some money out of it?
Create connection with people around you
Are you tired of all the unstoppable interaction you get from your online presence? Get some privileged moments with some of the people living around you and create memories with them.
Share your passion in your own way
You are unique and we know it. Find your own way of transmitting your passion, knowledge or know-how and build your experience around it. Be yourself and authentic!
What kind of experience can I host?
An experience is an activity that people don’t do on a regular basis. Instead, experiences are meant for individuals, small groups of friends or families to be trying new things and discovering new passions and ideas together. Therefore, experiences can happen around limitless combinations of categories, set ups, places, and hosts that will inspire people living it.
Design the experience you will host
Being an Experimnt host also means offering an experience that ressembles you. You are free to design any experience to create a memorable moment for your guests. Test new things and improve your experience a little more each time!
Choose and manage your availabilities
Hosting an experience can be a full-time activity or a hobby to do in your free time. As an Experimnt host, you are free to set your own availabilities. Feel free to start with only a few weekly availabilities and add more later on.
Set the price yourself
Each experience is different and people might be willing to pay different prices to live it. We let you set the price of your experience yourself, so you are free to adapt it through time, whether your costs or the value of your experience increase.
Some key elements will make your experience a great success:
Host virtually with Online Experiences
You are willing to host an experience, but you would like to open it to a larger public and host it online? Good news, experimnt allows you to do it with online experiences! The listing submission process is very similar to regular experiences, just follow the steps mentioned above.
We use Zoom Meetings to host each online experience. Zoom is a third-party cloud platform for video conferencing and can be used on desktop computers, tablets, and mobile devices.
To host your online experience, please follow this specific process:
- Create or connect to your Zoom Account
- Create a Zoom Meeting for the date and time of the booked experience. Using the ‘Waiting Room’ feature on Zoom will allow you to control who is trying to connect to your meeting and accept only those who have booked.
- Send through the internal messaging system the Zoom Meeting link to your guest.
- On the day of the experience, connect to your zoom meeting, wait for your guest to come and start the experience.
Steps for your guests:
- After booking their experience, they will receive from you a zoom meeting link through the internal messaging system.
- On the day of the experience, they will need to connect to the zoom meeting and enjoy your experience.

Quality is our top priority. As a host, you are responsible for providing the highest and equal quality experience to all of your guests. Quality at Experimnt is defined by the following standards:
As a experience host, you are free to decide the pricing you want to charge for your experience. At the moment, all prices are in Canadian Dollars ($CAD), but we are working at allowing more currencies on the platform in the near future. Your guests will pay for the experience when they book through the platform. Note that to protect our community, we do not allow any additional charges that are not specifically stated in an experience listing (i.e. add-ons). Your are however free to accept tips from your guests, after the experience and at your guests’ discretion.
Integrity is a uniquely important aspect in building trust in a community. As a host, you are responsible for providing the highest and equal quality experience to all your guests.
Payout and Fees
Hosts can request payouts at any time through the ‘Wallet’ section of their dashboard. You will be able to configure your payout method and request payouts.
In order to create a safe environment for the whole community, we charge a service fee on each booking. These fees allow us to improve the quality of service offered to our hosts and our guests, to advertise your experience to our community, as well as developing the platform in the long run. Fees are today fixed at 20% of the booking price. Fees are automatically calculated based on the price of the experience and are deducted from payout.
All applicable taxes are being charged to each booking and are therefore calculated into payout. It is the hosts responsibility to declare revenues to government, as stated by local laws and regulations.
As of today, the cancellation policy is as follows: All experiences can be cancelled by guests and fully refunded within 24 hours of booking, or at least 7 days before the experience starts. As a host, you are responsible to apply these policies as expected by the platform and its community. Experimnt has the right to modify or delete any of the settings applied on this experience, or remove the experience from the platform, without prior notice, if its policies are not properly followed.
