why do i have to take payments? why can't booking.com earn their 15%?

Can't wait to get on Air BnB......this is just horrible to work with. shocking


It is what you signed up for with booking.com.  They will process payments but charge extra and you need to check if they can do this for you. 

Balancing act of who you get the most bookings from.  I am listed on booking.com and airbnb and majority of guests are via booking.com.  You are paying for them having such a huge audience of people looking for accommodation.  Nothing stopping you listing on both and seeing where your business comes from.
