Hi 

Just like with Expedia your listing is on sister  and affiliate websites too.

 

Booking holdings  who own Booking.com aslo bought agoda some years ago too.

 

its all one network of websites.

 

yes i agree extranet should have an option to opt out of these.

 

others have seen their listings are not always duplicated correctly to agoda and then have to report it to them for them to be amended correctly.

 

you should do that.

Calendars need to sync with all services.  And we should be able to turn instant booking off to check for availability.   I do not understand why this is sooo hard of a concept!

Hi AJ

 

1. ICAL Sync

  • Its  always been unreliable, and causes double bookings.
  • It has no sync manager or scheduler to force sync.
  • Only available when room type inventory count = 1.
  • If greater than 1 then unavailable. 
  • Hence why using an external Channel Manager is important ( it acts as initiator, and sync scheduler.

 

2. Manual Approval of New Reservations

When you signed up as partner it was in the videos and partner help that you would be agreeing to auto confirmations , based on the availability in your extranet calendar.

 

I know it would be nice but it aint going to happen, as it part of the OTA model used, which is why it is popular by guests.

 

So its nothing to do with  'why are BdC not doing x,y,z. '.

Its by design , on purpose.

 

I see I already told you this weeks ago.

Note: When a guest makes a booking through the Booking.com platform, their reservation is confirmed immediately. So it’s generally not possible to reject a reservation, except for certain situations.
