Priority Partner Program

Hello Everyone,

Although I am not new on the website but I have started exploring the extranet page recently. I have come to know about Priority Partner Program, which has got a higher percentage of commission than usual one.

I am curious to know more about this program. What are the special offerings of the programs and if any other partner on forum has enrolled for the program what are the outcomes.

Kind Regards

Prefferred Partner Programme?
- standout from the crowd
- get seen by more costumers
- earn more bookings

Basicly that's it.

It means paying extra for extra visibility. If you’re in a location with very many competitors nearby, then it would be worth considering as it could be helpful to attract more bookings than you might otherwise get. If on the other hand you’re in an area with so few competitors that you come high up in the listings anyway, you don’t need the extra boost, so you’d probably be wasting your money. In other words, if you’re getting plenty of bookings you can ignore it. But if you’re struggling to get bookings, think about joining the scheme, but first make sure you’re getting excellent reviews and score ratings. That always has to be the most important aim, as that in itself will get you those bookings.

The questions is, are you even eligable for preffered programme? I am at 40%, and I think it is because I receive a lot of bookings from other OTA's and from direct bookings meaning less availability on BC. I think major bookings must be acumulated through BC based on your units that you sell. You can still pay a higher commission *sponsored* if you choose too, for extra visibitly (without preffered programme).

Thanks a lot everyone for your valuable feedback. What is the criteria to be eligible for this and how can I check my eligibility? And other thing how does it increase my visibility?

It would be great if any partner can explain in detail.

Thanks in anticipation.

The criteria: good reviews and lots of sales through Booking.com
You receive a badge with a thumb up icon (recommended by Booking.com) and usually your listing is visible on top of the page in your area.

So do you mean I will get a thumbs up like the one in picture and I will pay 18% commission instead of 15%?

Basicly yes. I personally think this is a very good feature (to be competitive). .
