Commission payment

Dear all,

This is my first post here. I was wondering how I can let Booking get directly paid from the booking incomes. I have sent them an email but they referred to this forum.

Many thanks

Hi there Dar Adam Fez ,

Welcome to the Forum!

I've learnt a lot from the Forum, it's really worth it to browse the posts etc.

When you say "How I can let Booking get directly paid from the booking incomes".. can you please clarify that a bit better?

Do you want to retrieve payment from your guests? Or do you want your guests to pay their commission to themselves?

Hope to hear from you again soon!

Hi Leandri,

Thank you for your kind answer. I mean that I would like Booking the retrieve the commission amount from the payments I receive through Booking.

Booking is already retrieving the payments from my guests for me. It is logical that they retrieve the commissions from those amounts instead of that I need to pay the commissions separately.

Does this make sense? Thank you very much

Kind regards

Hi there Riad Dar Adam!

Thanks for clarifying yes, that makes 100% sense.

According to my knowledge, if collects payment from your guests.. they pay you out only what you've earner Minus the commission.

This is the only information I could find in regards to why you would have to pay something to

We send you invoices for legal purposes. Since you have a contract with, we'll always send you an invoice. We recommend you keep these invoices for accounting purposes.

In the exceptional case that your invoice amount is higher than your remittance advice amount, you’ll need to pay the difference.

Leandri you are absolutely right. collects payment from guests and on the 15th of the next month of check-out they transfer payment to my bank account minus the commission. I keep all invoices for legal purposes. Having collecting payment for me makes everything so simple and safe. Take care.
