CellPoint Mobile’s new Travel Bank mWallet enables airlines to manage a range of passenger payments and transactions quickly and cost-effectively, including third-party mobile-wallet payments such as Apple Pay, MasterPass, Visa Checkout, Android Pay and Amex Express Checkout.
Aided by a secure, single sign-on platform that integrates seamlessly with a variety of payment methods and e-wallets, airlines can create new revenue streams from beginning to end of the passenger journey, according to Gjerding. Airline passengers enjoy seamless, secure one-click payments and digital transactions without having to re-enter information, open new windows or sign on to a variety of apps.
Part of its sophisticated payments architecture and platform, CellPoint Mobile’s stored payment capability enables airlines to:
• Store passengers’ payment directly and securely, including credit/debit card information, and alternative payment method information (e.g., bank transfers, mobile payments, pre-paid cards, Bitcoin, etc.)
• Access payment information stored at third-party sites or with other payment sources, as well as third-party e-wallets such as Apple Pay, MasterPass, Visa Checkout, Android Pay and Amex Express Checkout, through a built-in, secure credentialing process. Payments are then transacted securely and are (PCI)-compliant
• Integrate their payments process seamlessly with other mobile wallets and payment methods
• Manage all payments from a central dashboard that supports secure, simple, one-click check-out, regardless of how a passenger enters the payments ecosystem (website, app, loyalty program, etc.)
CellPoint Mobile’s stored payment capability is managed from the same central platform that supports its Travel Bank mWallet® solution, Converged Payment Gateway, and mFraud® solution, giving airlines a versatile and multi-functional infrastructure for managing, monitoring and processing passengers’ payments and transactions in real time.
