~ Pre-Deduct Travel Configuration ~
Some customers may want to use wholesalers, but they want
to pay their owner commission for the Rack rate instead of the Net rate.
The wholesaler may or may not send payment prior to arrival of the reservation.
RDP does not allow pre-deduct travel agents and allow billing to
a master or leader at the same time. Here are the steps in RDPWin to allow the use of
wholesalers or pre-deduct travel agents without using net rates or billing the

only Folio I or Folio B should be printed for the guest, so that they only will
