Setting your charge point to "Public" makes it visible to all Monta users. Anyone can see your charge point and anyone can charge at it. They will be charged the price you set and you will receive their payment to your Monta Wallet.

You can also create a schedule to switch between Public and Private visibility of your charge point. When it is Public, other users will see it on the Monta map, but when it is Private the charge point becomes visible only for you and the members of the team, where the charge point is located.
