Merchant Services & Credit Card Processing for Cruise Lines

Merchant Services for Cruise Lines

Operating a cruise line is one of the most complex businesses in the world. With different tax rules, safety rules, weather conditions, timing, serving thousands of passengers at a time, and managing logistics for over thousands of employees at a time.

MagicPay takes all of that in consideration when providing merchant services to the cruise line industry. We understand the complexity of the industry and the necessity to provide reliable and affordable credit card processing services for your cruise line business. Providing the right technology and working with the right banks is the key to make a cruise line merchant account a great success. With the MagicPay experience, this should be a relatively easy and quick process.

Cruise Line Booking & Reservation Payment Processing

Cruise Line On-Board Credit Card Processing

Processing credit cards while sailing is just as important as allowing your customers to pay for their reservations. Credit card tips, bar tabs, restaurants on-board, spa and stores on your ship are just some of the items your passengers would love to spend money on. With MagicPay you can feel at ease, knowing we got you covered every step of the way.

From the moment your passengers are on-board you would be able to either open a tab and  pre-authorize a specific amount, or rather if you provide access to satellite internet, our machines can easily work with your satellite internet network at sea.

  • Pre-Authorize a Debit or Credit Card
  • Capture an Amount Higher than Authorized (if needed)
  • EMV Terminals & PIN Pads
  • Option to Connect to Satellite Internet

Reduced Processing Rates & Fees Using Level 3 Processing Technology

Level 3 Processing allows cruise lines and other merchant types to save processing rates and fees by sharing transaction data with the credit card networks. Such data may include details not otherwise required to authorize a credit card, such as tax amount, order number, invoice number, order description and other fields that are accepted by the credit card networks.

By providing such unique data to the acquirers, your customers benefit optimized reporting on their credit card statement, and you enjoy reduced interchange rates given by the credit card networks. Using Level 3 also indirectly allows to reduce chargebacks, as relevant transaction data is shared with the card issuing banks, which may in return may use this data to validate a transaction in a case of dispute.

  • Reduced interchange rates & fees
  • Optimized reporting for business card holders
  • Attract large corporations and governmental organizations to your brand
