#EXPEDIA WANTS CUSTOMERS TO CHOOSE WHEN TO PAY-either at booking online or checkout via @tnooz

“Expedia is slowly testing its Expedia Traveler Preference (ETP) program as a new payment model. A traveler who books a room through one of the company’s branded sites can choose to pay Expedia upon booking or at the hotel on checkout.”

How will this effect Expedia’s hotel clients?

“Expedia has tested its flexible model internationally and hotels may simply have to accept the new foreign style. Expedia will continue to give the hotel the same commission regardless of how the customer decides to make their payment however with most new programs some hotels may feel some commission structure side effects.”
