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.
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!).
If you mean reducing your commission back to 15% (assuming that is the base commission in your country) then you need to request being taken off the Preferred Partner Programme.
I've only been doing this three years but I don't remember BDC having an actual adjustable percentage directly (other sites yes). It's all done via programmes, campaigns and boosters.....AFAIK....
Just to add....
5) receiving 2 email notifications for every non-mine post in a thread that I have posted in.
6) Is this the only forum in the universe without a basic set of emoticons, these are very useful to clarify the intention of the written post.
Very easy in fact.
"Match your chosen rate" is the setting you require. If your normal rate e.g. 2 days minimum stay in June but 7 days in July & August, then the promo will follow the same setting.
It also allows you choose a different min. stay if you wish, except for joining a BDC campaign where it always matches your standard min. stay.
Are you sure your email is required for login?
For most people it's your BDC account number and then your password.
Firstly hello and welcome.
I'm amazed by the reactions from hotels you've stayed at, good grief!
I value comments from other hoteliers more highly than any other, I have implemented several points that have been made and been very thankful for them. Some comments have not been appropriate to us but still gratefully received. You can also look up their hotel to see if they are actually honest in their claims too!
Never too new or seasoned to learn, one of the worst things we can do is be stuck in our ways, especially in an industry that is constantly and rapidly changing.
I remember my very first job within a government ministry, I suggested a better to do something and had the same old reply "but we've always done it this way..", I would respond "soooooo?"......
