Agoda have raised their commission rates
As there does not seem to be a discussion section on Agoda's partner hub, I shall vent here.
As the title says, Agoda who already have the highest commission rate at the basic setting, have decided the current climate of business is a great time to raise their commission rate.
Un-expletive-believable! 17% for our area was already bad but now up to 20%.
Quite scandalous, especially for an area that is still really struggling tourism wise, as a destination we remain way under 5% of normal levels.
We have closed all direct rooms to Agoda in protest and total disgust, they can only pull from BDC now.
The decision makers at Agoda need a bullet for sure, how can they think 20% of nothing is better than 17% of $$$$.
Anyone here who has a direct Agoda account should check out the commission rate setting.
