I have a number of properties with booking.com the last one I cannot receive payments from booking.com due to a glitch in their system.  I have called at least 8 to 10 times to try and sort it out and each time get a different answer.  I finally got told by someone that there is a glitch in the system and I will not be able to receive payments from booking.com until this is sorted on their side.  Meanwhile I have guests that are booking without credit card details and then simply not arriving, I then loose on the actual booking for that period as well as I have no recourse to get any sort of payment from the guest as well as booking.com has made me pay commissions on these bookings!!!!  I am at a point where I want to remove myself from the booking.com platform due to the frustration.  I simply want booking.com to not allow guest to be able to book without taking a deposit, I don't mind if they have to pay when they get to my establishment, I just do not want to have no income because they dont pitch as well as no recourse.

Hi @Moya Blight ,


I'm so sorry to hear there's a delay in your payments! 


I'd like to share some information on the no show and commission related topic hoping that it might be helpful:


We charge commission on confirmed stays, regardless of whether the guest stayed at your property or not.

You also pay commission when:

  • You charge guests for non-refundable or partially refundable no-shows or cancellations
  • You charge guests who cancel after the free cancellation period has ended

You don’t have to pay commission when:

Additionally, maybe the Smart Flex reservations programme information might be interesting to attract new guests incase you find it useful. 

Are there any other partners in the Community who can share some advice and insights from their experiences with Moya?
