LONDON – eMerchantPay Group, the trusted global leader in international online payment processing gateway services for e-commerce, virtual terminals and more, today announced a partnership with WorldTicket to provide airlines with instant access to online payment acceptance and processing capabilities.
The partnership provides new payments capabilities that are fully integrated with WorldTicket’s Sell-More Seats® Internet-based sales and reservation system, eliminating the need for airlines to go through merchant account approval, technology selection and technology integration processes.
With the new capabilities, airlines can offer anytime, anywhere online payment processing in virtually any language, currency or payment method. Extensive fraud and risk monitoring and management capabilities thwart unauthorized transactions and reduce business exposure.
Startup airlines can be up-and-running and in business instantly, enabling consumers to make travel reservations and purchase tickets with ease. Established airlines can also benefit from increased sales by offering a wide variety of mainstream global, regional and country-specific payment brands and alternative payment methods, as well as payment acceptance in more than 150 world currencies.
“This is an ideal solution for small- and medium-size airlines because it provides an undisputed competitive advantage with little to no implementation effort,” states Lasse Meilsoe, chief executive officer of WorldTicket. “We are pleased to partner with eMerchantPay to bring world-class online payments capabilities to the airline industry.”
“Large-scale, world-wide online payment processing can be complicated and confusing for a new market entrant and even for mid-tier carriers,” says Jonas Reynisson, chairman of eMerchantPay. “Together with WorldTicket, we are able to provide a seamless solution that takes care of all the details so these airlines can remain focused on core aspects of their businesses.”
“Miran Aviation will be the first airline to benefit from the partnership,” states Bartek van de Pavert, vice president of international sales for eMerchantPay. “We look forward to helping Miran Aviation expand their market reach to increase sales with comprehensive international payment acceptance and processing capabilities.”
