Which Bookings are charged Commission?
Completed Bookings are automatically charged commission. Commissions for network bookings are payable after bookings are completed by the guest.
Cancelled bookings are not charged commission, but must be cancelled in the system. It is good practice to cancel bookings as soon as you know the guest will not complete the stay. This restores availability to new buyers and adjusts your commissions payable to agents and the network.
Bookings made through the GDS or a Global Booking Network Site (Seen in "Source" in the booking and the CRS Confirmation ID), must be cancelled by the Guest directly with the Agent or the website from where it was booked. If you only cancel the booking directly in MyPMS, that booking will be considered cancelled "Out of Channel" and you will be billed US$10.

How is the commission paid?
On the 1st of each month, the property will receive an automated e-mail with a list of all completed bookings. If a booking was not completed, go to the Booking Details and Cancel the Booking. If a booking was completed, but the value of the booking changed; go to the Booking Details and Edit the Booking Value. All reconciliations must be completed by the 15th of the month. On the 16th of the month, your account will be deemed due. Commissions are payable immediately. Failure to pay commissions by the 30th may result in having your account suspended or paying a 'late fee' as stipulated in your Account Form.
Network Commissions displays the commissions due on each complete booking The list can be filtered and sorted in a variety of ways to customize your search (See Online Bookings for sort and filter options). Read below to learn more about Understanding Commission Charges and cancelled bookings.
