How to become eligible for Payment by booking.com
Sorry for asking questions that have been previously discussed, but it remain unsolved with booking.com for months.
I have been applying for Payment by booking.com since late Feb as I find this suit me the best and I have been working hard to fulfil what I have been asked to do, after all the hard work and waitings, I was told recently that I am not eligible for the program without giving any reasons. I am therefore so clueless as everyone from booking.com tells me different story when I contacted them. Some say you have to fulfil this and then wait, some say you have to fulfil that and then wait…
Here are some of the criteria that I have been told to hit to become eligible.
- Set payment method to Cash Only
- Set room availability below 11
- Paid invoice and set up direct debit
- Complete more than 30 reservations
- Wait for around 4-6 weeks to receive the “invitation”
I believe that many hosts here do understand the frustration having the payment method set to Cash only, anyone here can please share your experience on applying for the program? Are there actually any quantifiable parameters to assess each property for hosts to work towards to as I cannot see any finish line other than endless waiting.
