Do Booking. com hold the payment for you when you are new?

The information that I have received seems to indicate that cash on the guests arrival is the only payment method for new hosts?

Unsure anymore, because all properties which enter into our franchise get the full payment benefits, however I think that you can opt in for getting paid by BDC for reservations where the guests pay online.

You might want to call your local support office and ask.

yes I think that is true unless you have another way for guests to make payment ie paypal or bank transfer or access to an EFT pos machine. After 3 months BDc will change our payment method options.
