Getting paid policies structure
I have recently added a few more properties to my profile. Each of them were assigned a policy that would see me getting paid within 7 days of the guest checking out.
My first property gets paid once a month by the 15th of the month.
Clearly there are pro and cons to both policies which may suit different businesses.
For me personally, I hate having to pull bank statements and trying to match deposits with bookings. It takes forever. With my first property I simply look at the payment and see if it matches my bookings for that period. Simple.
I asked Booking.com to change all to the once a month policy and they refused. But then I got an email saying this was in fact an error and it would be changed in time. As yet, nothing has changed.
While I understand that some people may prefer one method over the other. We should really have the choice which policy we would like.
I was told that they only want one policy. Which is absolute rubbish. They already have multiple policies running so why people cant be given the choice is beyond me.
Perhaps we are not actually PARTNERS of booking but simply slaves to THEIR needs
Considering that we pay a lot of commission to booking surely we cant expect a partner rather than a dictator.
Yes...I am very angry.
