Why Travel Agencies should become UATP Merchants

Travel Agencies can boost sales by accepting UATP for payment when joining the UATP Network directly as a Merchant; connection is easy and at no cost to you. Travel Agent Merchants can also accept UATP as a form of payment for agency services and net fares (consolidator fares).

For companies that cannot join industry clearing houses, UATP offers its internal settlement solution (USS) to process UATP charges. Capture the growing client market by becoming a UATP Travel Agent Merchant.

Why Airlines should become UATP Merchants

The corporate travel market is rapidly expanding. Accepting UATP for payment can help grow your business and lower distribution costs. Capture the growing market while battling core issues of cost savings by becoming a UATP Merchant.

Master Merchants

Accept and process UATP transactions

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 transactions. Typically a Master Merchant will carry out all claims processing and accept all settlement and clearing activity on behalf of their merchants.
