Confirming Bookings

Why is it some girls confirm AW bookings straight away and some don't? Can make it a bit difficult trying to plan if you're waiting for a booking to be confirmed, even though the girl has accepted by text.

I dont know, you would have to ask each individual girl. I schedulea booking when I see it in my folder. I click the confirmation usually after as its a confirmation that the booking took place, no point confirming a booking till it happens. Sometime I click confirm when the guy confirms on the day.

Thanks for the replies ladies. I guess I assumed the point was to confirm that the appointment 'will take place' rather than 'has taken place'.:drinks:

We click "Schedule" for bookings that we have accepted. Then "Confirm" for bookings that HAVE taken place :)

Ah yes I have seen scheduled come up on a booking before. So I suppose the question is why don't some girls 'schedule' the booking on AW even though they have agreed it via text or over the phone? Hate to think they were hedging their bets!!!

Thanks Cat, that's interesting. I always assumed that 'confirm booking' was to let the punter know that the booking was going ahead. It seems some people interpret it in different ways. There is nothing worse than making an advanced booking on AW with a girl you have really been looking forward to seeing and then having to wait until it is confirmed to be sure it is definitely going ahead. I'll keep this in mind in future :thumbsup:

I have my own system for confirming a booking, which I make explicit at the time of booking.

I'll usually confirm an AW booking form once the meet has taken place, and this is what AW ask you to do - they ask you confirm the meet has happened. Sometimes I'll confirm before if it's someone I've seen several times and know he's unlikely to cancel, but most of my clients don't use the AW system.

Yes, thanks again. If the meeting is scheduled I would assume it wasn't going ahead

The correct and logical way to interpret it is exactly this: scheduled means due to happen in the future, confirmed means that it already happened. How each person choose to interpret it is up to them:)
Cheers, I get it now. It's the fact that it is different from most other booking systems that threw me (if you book a hotel, flight, train etc you receive a booking confirmation before you stay/travel). I won't stress so much about unconfirmed bookings in the future :D

Some WG's I've seen have used both scenarios. In the instance wherby the booking is confirmed before the meeting takes place, the punter can only leave +/- feedback after the time/date of booking has passed.

With regard to the WG not confirming until after it's taken place, she may forget to confirm, so "feedback only" can be left. This could be a ploy if the meeting itself didn't go well.

FWIW, my preference is to have the booking confirmed prior to the meeting. However, it's not a deal breaker.

Adultwork explains how to use the system, go to 'Escort Bookings' and hover over the boxes to schedule and confirm, it says;
Scheduled - if a booking is scheduled you should tick this box so that it will show in your bookings diary and reminders will be sent to you (both these items are coming soon.
Confirmed - if a booking took place you should confirm it so the client can leave feedback for you. Confirming signifies that the booking actually took place. If the booking did not take place you should not tick this box. The client will still be able to leave feedback but will not be able to leave a rating.

I think the confusion lies when we say to punters that they need to confirm before the booking, i.e. they need to tell us that they are definitely coming. The page on the client's side should explain what schedule and confirm mean for a booking request, then we can all use the system correctly.
I've had a few no-shows because the client said "you didn't confirm the booking so I assumed it was off".

I wonder if when we get a bookings diary and reminders we will also get the ability to reject bookings!

I do seem to remember that a message pops up on the feedback page saying that "you are unable to leave a rating because the escort has yet to confirm that this meeting took place" (or something along those lines), thus indicating what the purpose of the confirmation is.
