Before Signing up with Booking, Beware
I am a Property Manager managing over 5 listings. We tried Booking.com as a new platform but now feel we have to warn others not to make the same mistake.
Booking,com has refused to pay out the money from the bookings we had with them, (Over $1600 AUD) .
We have been given the excuse of not being verified, not having a bank account that handles overseas transactions, even though we get the money from Airbnb and Homeaway, after 2-3 days.
Everything on booking,com, is designed for the customer but the host gets high fees and Late (If ever) payments in return.
We even switched Bank accounts, and YES, both large International Banks, that handle Overseas transactions.
We had to cancel over 20 reservations because we weren't getting paid, so before you sign up, read some similar post from Host that have these issues with them.
not only is the platform very hard to work with, also the lack of screening guest, cancellations and the High Fees was the reason for us to pass this platform.
