for Monthly Activity Statemen

t

Describes how to Make Adjustments to Bookings and How to Cancel Bookings to control commissions. Web Reservation Systems sends a Monthly Activity Statement to customers displaying their commissionable bookings for the previous month. The Activity Statement is not an Invoice. Accommodations use it to preview in advance what commissions will be charged for the month. If any bookings were cancelled, they need to cancel them in the Members Area to remove commission obligations. If a booking had an adjusted value because a guest payed less (or more) that the value booked; the accommodation can adjust the amount in their Member's Area to correct their commission.
