When will these agents realise that discounting OUR rates will only drive us away to other agents.
At best it's short sighted, at worst extremely stupid and totally lacking in business acumen.
All it does is start a price war between OTAs, all matching/beating the other's offer.
Any discount should be approved by the property. Do they they ever remember we are supposed to be "partners"?
I very recently found Agoda were applying an unsanctioned discount to the Indian market only on my property, in reaction to that BDC applied a price-matching discount to my rates WORLDWIDE!! The Agoda discount is now gone but the BDC one will continue for up to 12 weeks. The property gets clobbered every time.
Just to follow up;
We received the expected useless reply, "clear your cache...there is no fault this end..." etc. As I said, already done.
Anyhoosen, the facility came back on line the next day with no further action taken my end, draw your own conclusions ;-)
Have now! ha ha but only as a followed-thread reply. Not sure the @tag actually does anything.
EDC = Electronic Data Capture, in this case means a credit card machine. (off line = no physical card required.)
Hi Leandri! We both still exist then :-)
If none of the above apply in your case then try to relocate the guest yourself. You can then do a deal with the other property so that you either still make a little off the top or at least don't lose out.
DO NOT request BDC to cancel/relocate the guest, it will almost certainly hurt you in the pocket!
There may be a reason for this, especially if the discounts you are finding are marked as "Booking Basics".
The BDC Bots go crawling around the net, as do the the Bots of all other major OTAs.
BDC Bots seem to concentrate on the rate of your cheapest offer, if in their crawling they find a cheaper rate these are thrown into a 12 week rolling average.
Let's say OTA "Z" or any other online presence you have directly or indirectly, puts up a rate for your property at 10% below your normal rate. BDC Bot then finds this, chucks it into the averaging pot and drives your "price quality" score with BDC down.
You also find this wrong/mistaken price and have it removed, possibly within 24 hours of it occurring, TOO LATE, it's in the melting pot and will stay there for up to 12 weeks. Any other Bot findings go in there too. Once your price quality score falls below a certain percentage level (no, I have no idea how that is calculated) it triggers the system to price match your lowest rate to the lowest that the Bots found, keeping BDC the lowest price on the net. You may find your individual information on this in the "Analytics" section, "Price Quality Dashboard".
7) Forum is VERY slow refresh, comments made do not appear in the headings of "Recent" OWHY for several hours. This really stifles any conversation.
8) Both PC and mobile versions still have boxes that don't fit the screen or are incomplete, a little nit-picky granted but still detracts from usability.
Generally this new format is also far less intuitive to navigate (the mobile version is worse), having to do double or triple the work to move around, not good and I'm finding it rather unfriendly to use. If others are experiencing the same as me it would explain the huge downturn in activity here.
Point 1 now fixed, thank you..EDIT....or not.
Well I thought it was fixed but I'm getting notifications for my own posts again.
As much as I agree with Katerinka12 comments, the point has been missed.
Isle of Wight Vacations rightly complained that, as an established and known partner to BDC, a new property having passed the verification stages OF THE SAME OWNER should not enjoy the same earned status as far as payment is concerned. (I have assumed for this comment that all contact details and financial information is identical, if not then as you were!).
