Cruise Line Merchant Accounts
Credit Card Processing for Cruise Line Companies
Owners of cruise line companies do everything in their power to satisfy their clientele. From hassle-free travel to the latest on boat amenities, every detail must be carefully planned in order to build relationships that lead to repeat business and referrals. This includes billing and payment practices, as cruise passengers want to be assured that their transactions are completed quickly, conveniently, and securely. Due to the nature of the business, however, companies may find it difficult to open a cruise line merchant account that meets their needs.
Challenges Cruise Companies Face with Processing
Cruise line travel is considered a high-risk industry because of the high-ticket value and exposure to risk. At the same time, companies operating in this space require online credit card processing solutions in order to ensure passengers can book their travel without hassle. Customers that choose cruise lines for travel may also require flexible billing that works with their business budget, which can turn some processors away from issuing companies a cruise line merchant account. Some obstacles cruise businesses face include:
- High-Value Transactions
- Irregular Billing Schedules
- Online Reservations and Advanced Scheduling
- Risk of Chargebacks and Cancellations
