Master Merchants

UATP allows transaction processing organizations that have a significant travel merchant client base to join UATP as a Master Merchant to enable their travel agencies and travel-related suppliers to accept and process UATP cards.  Typically a Master Merchant will carry out all claims processing and accept all settlement and clearing activity on behalf of their merchants.

UATP supports all Master Merchants by providing direct connection or web interface for claim submissions, authorization, transaction processing and settlement through UATP’s internal settlement solution, USS.
