    Hi Everyone,

    Thank you for your comments,  we have just received the below communication from our Finance Team and wanted to share it with you right away: 

    Dear Partner,

    Due to a technical problem we have not been able to process bank transfer payout on time this month. If you have not received a monthly payout yet, it will reach your account before the end of this week.

    There is no need to contact our Finance department or Customer Service to follow up.

    Our apologies for any inconvenience caused.

    Booking.com Team

    It's great to see everyone supporting one another here on the forum during this time. 

    Thanks for your patience,

    Hi Thomas 

    just to let you know we are experiencing the exact same problem,  we haven't received any payment from booking.com for last 2months, I can't tell you how many times I have called (never able to speak to the same person twice) 

    today we actually were told by financial department to try resetting our bank details, we have now done that so waiting to here by from them tomorrow now!

    very frustrating to say the least!

    In all fairness to booking.Com up until this issue we haven’t had a problem with payments and we have been registered with them since 2016, but something has happened since jan, we have checked our end at the bank and it is all set up correctly, so we feel it’s an issue at there end however getting in resolved is proving difficult.

    Are you paying commission before receiving payment????

    Thomas, Amos80, Asya and everyone else experiencing issues receiving payments from Booking.com

    I too had an issue receiving this month's payout and exactly a week after I should have been paid, I finally have an admission from Booking.com that the fault is at their side.

    I would strongly recommend that you email your concerns to the following:

    (Credit Control Team Leader)

    (CEO)

    I got nowhere speaking to anyone else.

    Stand your ground and insist that they pay you YOUR money and keep on their case until they do.

    Good luck!

    I'm having problems getting paid for a booking using booking.com's virtual card.  The guests stayed with us on the 23 March.  I tried to collect the payment from the virtual card on the 23 March and the card was declined.  I phoned booking.com and was told they did have problems and to try again later.  Next try still declined.  I contacted booking.com again and was told they would send a modified booking with a new credit card.  By the 26yh March nothing had arrived.  I messaged them and was told I had probably tried to put the transaction through too many times too quickly.  This was twice six or seven hours apart.  I tries again three days later and again it was declined.  I have sent another message but no reply yet.  This throws doubt into the reliability of using the virtual card.  If it isn't settled yet I will think about not accepting virtual cards or charge the guest if I havn't receved payment and leave it to the guest to get their money back.  After all the agreement we have with booking.com is payment will be available on the guests day of arrival.  Is anyone else having these problems?  If they were to say we have a problem it will be sorted out in a week but to try and blame us for putting the transactions through to quickly destroys any confidence in the system.

    There is no excuse on the part of Booking.com for you not to be able to have access to your funds on the guest day of arrival using the virtual credit card.

    Unfortunately Boking.com agents around the world seem to make things up as they go along.

    If the system was working properly you would have been able to collect the funds on the first time of trying and have never heard such rubbish that you tried to many times.

    Tell Booking.com that you reserve the right to hold back any commission until the matter is resolved.

    I hope this is not a foretaste of things to come especially now they are trying to force owners to accept risk free bookings.

    Personally I have never had any problems with the virtual credit card in the past but if I did I would make the guest contact booking.com and do the running around in my case payment becomes due on arrival NO PAY NO STAY

    Thank you for your reply to my post David.  This is the first problem I've had with the virtual card.  We all know there are glitches but its how they are handled, the speed they are put right that matters.  Blaming the person that has not been paid is just not acceptable.  Take the blame booking.com and put it right.

    There is no excuse that you have had to wait so long for payment for services guest have received.

    Last September Booking.com allowed a guest to cancel for free when he was liable for the first nights room rate, though Booking.com admitted their mistake it took 2 months to receive payment with me having to constantly provide screen shots of their original e-mail accepting liability that they had made a mistake.

    Finally I told them I would stop commission payment deduct what I was due and then forward the rest of commission.  finally they produced a virtual card over night.

    All Booking.com have to do is simply reproduce a new virtual card for you to take payment,perhaps their system is becoming to big without employing more people to deal with this stuff

    I just joined booking.com but it is not clear to me how and when I will get paid on my recent services provided, where/how  can I contact anyone or have information on payments.

     

    Everything on the site sounds to me a bit general it is really not clear how i can charge the client or how/when I will get paid.

    Any help?

    I'm not sure what you're not getting paid for.  Is it for virtual card booking?  If so we have just had problems for the first time.  Booking.com tried to insist it was my fault.  They told me when the first transaction was declined I tried again too quickly and too often.  In fact I tried once in the morning, once that evening and once three days later.  Eventually I got through to an operator that actually listened to me.  After listening to the whole sorry saga She asked me to put the phone down and she would ring me back.  She did and booking.com had given me the wrong security number from the back of the card.  Tries with this number payment accepted.  All tech companies blame the customer for a fault its never their fault.  As for all other payments we collect of the guest and pay commission at the end of the month.  In all fairness to booking.com we have been with them for a long time and this is the first problem we've had.  Having said that everyone has an occasional problem its the way the problem is resolved that is the mark of a great and successful company.

    Hi David! 

    thanks for those email addresses, I am going to email both today as we are still waiting for both Jan and Feb payment which we were assured 2wks ago would be paid by a fast track payment, we have now received our invoice and statement etc for March which is due to be paid on 15th of this month but I am alomost 95% sure if we do not resolve this issue in soon we will be yet again no payment on 15th.

    this is starting to cost us money now as we have had bills/ direct debits going out and the moneys not there to cover, I will be asking them for compensation 

    what was the reason they said they hand to paid you? Do you have any alive as to what I should put in my email? Amy.

    Hi Amy,

    I eventually got paid on 27th, 12 days after payment was due. I firmly believe that if I hadn't been on their case for 12 days, it could have gone on much longer. Having said that, I asked for reassurance that whatever was wrong has been resolved and that all future payments will be made in a timely manner, but haven't had any contact since. So I'm now wondering what will happen this month.

    I would suggest being polite, briefly outlining your issue, confirming that you have checked everything at your side - bank details etc. and asking to be called back. You could maybe also try calling 0203 684 7924 if you are in the UK, this number gives the option to speak with the Dutch based credit control team.

    They say that they have a process to follow but to be honest, it should be as simple as calling their bank to check if the payment was successful or not. I called my bank and had confirmation within minutes that no payment had been received into the bank from anywhere for the amount due to me.

    It's not difficult so I'm not sure why they are making it so.

    I can sympathise with your situation and really hope you get it sorted very soon.

    I've not received payment yet for this month.  Has been fine until now.  Should have been 15th, it's 16th today. The number 02036847924 is now inactive.  No help from the support desk.

    Thank you David.  Just received a call from a lady who said the payment should reach me by tomorrow and that it was processed on Friday 13th.  The problem is that booking.com say...........

    You get paid

    You will receive a bank transfer by the 15th of each month that covers all bookings with a check-out in the previous month.

    And that is not the case!  It should say "we will process the payment by 15th of each month" or that they process it earlier so that it gets to you by 15th!

    Same problem here! Supposed to get paid before the 15th and nothing yet. All bills are coming out this week. Very stressful situation. The phone number they have for financial department is unavailable. I will probably have to stick to airbnb where they send the payment one day after checkin!

    I am having the same problem. Since 13th they have said the money should be there by end of day. I find it funny they take their own commission without delay. It’s the 16th July 2018 and still no payment. Same answer you should get it today or something is wrong with your bank account. Their is nothing wrong with my bank account as all other payments are fine. Booking.com have been constantly inconsistent with their payments. The problem is you just can’t get an answer from them it’s like hitting your head on a wall. I’m really getting frustrated now with them and their vague answers.

    I have just got through to finance department after one hour thirty minutes of waiting. They said they are having problems and no one has been paid in the UK and that a message will be sent out when payments have been done on the extranet. This morning I was told that payments had left already on the 12th. It’s complete madness that such a big company can’t get their finances slighted out. What chance do we small businesses have when we can’t even pay our bills on Time? It’s so frustrating because each person has their own version. Booking.com I request we partners get compensation for delayed payments. Thank you

    Yes not paid either and have sent a message to them.  We should of course receive compensation or better still not work with them.  It's a disgrace.  I'm sure the Financial Ombudsman would be able to offer some advice.  Our finances hang by a cliff edge at this time of the month...it's so stressful.

    I run a small self catering unit in UK. The payment for May was due on 16 June and was not received. The payment for June was due before 16 July and this has not been received. I have requested information on more than 10 occasion but just get rhetoric and standard bland replies. i have even tried approaching the CEO of Booking.com but still without a response. I am now resorting to contacting Riboff Britian and Watchdog in the hope that this may generate some action. Any other suggestions gratefully received

    The problem is that they may say this is a rare occurence but it has happened to me twice this year.  So they're either incompetent or having financial problems which makes me think that I shouldn't be working with them.

    This is bad as I have to
    Make payments from my personal
    Account today. I don’t understand if they take the commission on time why they won’t pay us the same day? Their commissions are always taken by the 12th. I’m not even going to bother calling them as I have had four different people giving me total different answers. Even now she told me their was an issue throughout the whole of uk and no one has received their payments and yet #mrcdgiles has been told payments should be received today or tomorrow as they have been paid. Why can’t they just be honest. Do they have different systems each person ? Or do they get told to tell us what they please ? I can’t be bothered to hold on for over an hour just to get through to them. Either I close my hotel and sit there calling them
    Or either I just carry on with my work. I think they should be reported now as this is no excuse because I can understand if they didn’t take their own commission but that’s not the case. #pleasepayusourmoney and #compensation for late payments and phone usage.

    Ia m running a small property in Oxfordshire with Booking.com and facing the same issues. I have two outstanding payments. I have been contacting their billing department without any success. They don't know what's going on and refuse to give the names of the billing department managers or team leaders!

    Hi all,

    I too have not received our monthly payment, this is the third time this year this has happened. I have spoken to my Booking.com Account Manager in our local office but he can't offer any explanation other than there was an issue identified on Friday which, for whatever reason, the Finance team, chose not to communicate. Apparently a message is due to be sent today to explain the issue and when it will be resolved...too little too late I think.

    Can I suggest that we all take a stance here and write to the powers that be (being careful what I say here as my last message with the contact details was moderated and didn't appear until weeks later). Their contacts details can be found on my post further up this thread which is dated 4 months ago.

    As I said at the start of this post, this is now three times this year Booking.com have failed to pay me on time. There is clearly an issue which they appear unwilling to resolve.

    Very very poor show from such a large company.

    Write an e-mail to Booking.com telling them that payments are now over due, give them 7 days to pay up or you will start adding interest which by law in The UK you have every right to do, but you must warn them first.
