Amadeus Worldwide Payment Acceptance

Amadeus Worldwide Payment Acceptance

With Amadeus Worldwide Payment Acceptance, travel agencies can create a single link to the Amadeus Payment Platform and be directly connected to a network of more than 300 acquiring banks through which to accept payments. Amadeus Worldwide Payment Acceptance enables travel agencies to authorise, reverse and refund payments from around the world, with integrated authentication checks. Because we have multiple links to acquiring banks we can re-route transactions which fail because of failed links. Travel agents can also use Amadeus Payment Manager to manage all their payment transactions worldwide which are processed by Amadeus.

Amadeus Worldwide Payment Acceptance is currently available in Amadeus e-Power, Amadeus Web Services, Amadeus Trip Concierge, Amadeus Selling Platform and Amadeus Agency Manager for the mid/back office.
