  1. Hello Michael,
    ATC Shopper is available via Web Services for your online customer portal. Some travel agencies may have service fees for the various options that they offer. Because you are building Amadeus reissue functionality into your website, you have the option to add service fees into your booking flow if appropriate.

  2. “Your agency can even charge an optional service fee for the ticket changes” …..
    How do we charge service fees when customer knows the total difference in the ticket ?
