But if you want to receive payments from Booking.com you need to activate "Payments by Booking.com" or "Online payments by BDC" (you need a POS machine).
I think this is not possible. Don't forget that Booking.com is hotel based platfrom, AirBnB is home based platform. So you'll see many different features on each platform.
M Adamopoulou, those are really great tips.
I would perhaps add that white sheets, white linen and white towels is definitily more recommended since it is well known that white laundry is more hygienic because you can wash them on a high temperature (90˙C), killing bacterias etc.. with the colored ones you basicly can't do that.
If you send them an email (or a message through extranet), they will see it, because they receive it on their personal email address and on their phone if they use an app.. It's the same proccedure as letting them know if they forgot something in the room after they already checked-out. The same way you let them know about the score. Some will ignore your message some won't. But at least you tried. Score can always be removed/modfied if requested by the guest.
Basicly we are just repeating ourselves. The point is, contact the guest directly about the score, and ask them politely to modify the score.. If they will - great.. if not... move on.
You can send this answer as a reply to their review (which is a nice reply for future guests that read those) and also as a private message directly to the booker via their BDC email address. If they left their phone number on the time of booking, you can even send them an SMS.
Most guests will read and will respond. Specially if they really enjoyed their stay at your property.
At least you can do is to try motivate the guest to modify their score.
A good example to respond to such scores:
Thank you for your kind score and your nice comment. We were very surprised to see that you scored all categories with 10, but overall you gave us 4 points out of 10. If there is some misunderstanding, we would like to ask you to overview your score (make a correction) or if on the other hand something wasn't all right in our property, please let us know, so we can arrange it better for our guests.
Thank you for your kindness
It should be in your mailbox. It can takes a few days to receive it.
I beleive that such providers (Revolut, Payoneer, N26,...) are not supported. You need to provide details from your local bank.
