Roadblocks Getting Travel Processing Accounts
Because the majority of travel related transactions occur long before the delivery of the actual product or services, many credit card processors label the industry as high-risk. Another deterrent for financial institutes that keeps them from offering these type of merchant accounts are the frequent chargebacks and disputes on payments. Banks and lenders are also leery of large-group payments, high amount of transaction volumes, or big ticket items like vacations or packages. When running a business inside this industry, you need a credit card processing partner like Leap Payments that will not hold you back, rather, we will help develop a unique solution for growth and prosperity.
