Yes payments by booking.com where it is automatically transferred to your bank account after booking.com have deducted their commision etc is brilliant.
It takes all the stress away, you know guests have paid, it reduces their running costs too as they are not having to chase us owners/managers for payment either...
So why have they since March stopped this service for new listings?
All it has done is create a nightmare for me. I manage over 40 properties, all listed before March I have no hassle with as they are on payment by booking.com
All since are a nightmare. I keep being told I need to register as cash, and run as such for at least 3 months to be offered payments by booking.com.. but that's impossible for me as I cover a 50 mile radius with all properties set up as self check in/out
Surely as an existing partner (for almost 3 years) we should automatically qualify for the same payment system our other properties are set as.
I'm sure all these other options have created more costs to booking.com also.
Yes offer guests their wide range of options to pay.
Then offer us partners two options..
1, payments by booking.com, where all deductions are taken prior to transfer to our accounts
2, processing our own payments, where booking.com then invoice us for the commission etc.
That's it... the main rule of business.. K.I.S.S.
Keep It Simple Stupid.
I know that booking.com has new ownership and I agree offering a wider variety of options for guests to pay will increase sales.... but booking.com could supply these options to make it easier and more efficient for all.
