Amadeus B2B Wallet Pay Later by AirPlus

null

Travel professionals are faced with a constantly changing payment landscape in the travel industry. Payment products have evolved over the last few years, but existing B2B supplier payment products do not always meet market expectations. This has resulted in the development of multiple payment solutions which often need to be managed separately.

Our challenge is to help our travel agency customers pay their suppliers, improve cash-flow, and automate operational processes, without generating extra administrative work or costs. Therefore, Amadeus has partnered with AirPlus International to offer travel professionals a new virtual payment solution for Amadeus travel agencies, the Amadeus B2B Wallet Pay Later by AirPlus.
 
AirPlus International is a global provider of specialist business payment solutions, with more than 38,000 corporate customers and over 600,000 cardholders worldwide.
 
This virtual credit card solution simplifies payment to travel suppliers, such as rail, hotel and non-BSP1 carriers, reduces the fraud risk and improves cash flow.
 

Product Overview


A virtual credit card (VCC) is a one-time payment card used to improve card-not-present transaction security, such as online, over the phone or by fax. The Amadeus B2B Wallet Pay Later by AirPlus payment solution is a “single usage credit card product” which is
based on a MasterCard scheme. Whenever UATP is not accepted by the merchant, a VCC card number is generated and can be used for purchase.
 
The Amadeus B2B Wallet Pay Later by AirPlus is a 16-digit MasterCard number generated by the Amadeus Payment Platform for the sole use of AirPlus registered travel agency users. It enables payment for travel related transactions that do not accept UATP card (AirPlus Company Account card, also known as lodge card or ghost card) as a form of payment but do accept MasterCard. A separate number is generated for each individual transaction, acting as a unique identifier to the AirPlus Company Account.

  • Enhanced purchasing power and cash flow through the incremental credit line at no extra cost for the agency
  • Easy to implement
