To much commission?

Did i do something wrong?

I have a boutique lodge with only 2 rooms!  I am on the Genius Program and Preferred Partner!  During my quiet month which is April, i used the promotion that Booking.Com suggested!  I really had a quiet month with a very low revenue, but the commission that i had to pay, was in the same region of my busiest month!  I was really a huge shock to me, as i even lowered my rates in order to get more bookings!

What did i do wrong?

Bookings

where it is hard, is when Booking.com combine two promotions resulting in losing what is essentially your profit. I have to laugh when Booking.com suggest adding a further 15% to the 15% already deducted as a special incentive to get bookings. Who can afford to lose 30%? get real!

Did you have a number of no-shows/late cancellations? If you don't mark these as no-show and charge-waived you will be invoiced for them by BDC.

You can have as many combined offers as you like as long you push up your original price to a level where your resultant price is where you want it.
