Partners Software is to launch an electronic payment system for online travel agencies and tour operators wishing to book low-cost airline tickets.
The system is part of the Bremen-based technology companies Low.Fare product and allows operators and agencies to buy tickets using their own payment systems on behalf of customers.
Credit cards, debit cards and direct debit arrangements with banks are included in the system, which is expected to be compatible on over 100 carriers.
Partners Software managing director Wolfgang Brinker said: “In addition to the individual booking service, subsequent processes are imperative today.
“The more efficient a booking is, the more process costs decline. Via the payment engine, we make purchasing low-cost flight for our clients as easy as issuing a GDS ticket.”
