Travel Merchant Account

MagicPay is serving the travel industry since its establishment. Travel merchants are usually prohibited or restricted from accepting credit cards with most payment processors. MagicPay works with a variety of payment processors and acquiring banks that allow travel agencies process credit cards. It is our duty to provide reliable, affordable and secure merchant account services.

Travel Merchant Account Overview

Most travel agencies ask the same question: “Why is Travel called high risk?” and “Why my application is denied?”. The answer is very simple. Travel is a very dynamic business. In many cases a travel agent takes payment as a third-party. A travel agent may charge a customer for a hotel stay, vacation package, cruise, airline ticket and so forth. Any change in such tickets, that is sometimes uncontrollable by the merchant, is making the merchant liable for a chargeback.

Today, many travel agencies do not charge airline tickets, hotels and other travel fees on their own merchant account, but rather, charge it directly through the airline or travel provider. This method is well respected by many payment processors, but others still stay behind with conservative approach and try to avoid travel agencies and other travel related merchants.
