Turning payments into profit
Each Amadeus B2B Wallet Prepaid virtual card number is unique. This means travel agencies generate a virtual account number each time they want to pay. Regardless it is a hotel, an airline or any other travel supplier. And they can do this in Amadeus Selling Platform, Amadeus Selling Platform Connect or via web services. Eventually, the prepaid virtual card replaces invoicing, wire transfers, bank debit cards, cheques and cash advances.
KEY FEATURES AND BENEFITS
Generate revenue and avoid surcharges:
Travel agents have different payment options. Therefore, they can earn revenue or avoid surcharges, allowing you to maximise financial returns. The MasterCard prepaid card earns you a rebate on every purchase made, while the Visa debit card helps to minimise or avoid supplier card fees and surcharges.
Streamline back-office processes
Each transaction has a unique card number, which improves the security when a physical card is not required. This includes online, over the phone or by fax purchases. Besides, each number is stored both in the booking records and the payment invoice. As a result, reconciliation gets easier.
Control how your card is used
Travel Agencies can control the validity and maximum spend of the card, while limitting the numbers of transactions. In addition, merchant guarantees protects you against supplier default and you have no financial liability, since Amadeus acts as the cardholder.
Fully integrated in Amadeus Selling Platform
Now, there is no need for Travel Agencies to leave the booking environment to pay suppliers, since B2B Wallet Prepaid is integrated the Amadeus Selling Platform.
Besides, major card schemes offer “chargeback rights”. Hence, travel agencies can recover money in the case of a supplier bankruptcy.
