Frequently Asked Questions

What types of travel industry businesses does Travel Payments accept as clients?

We provide merchant accounts for all types of travel industry businesses, but specialize in merchant accounts for businesses that are considered “high risk,” or hard-to-place. These can include travel agencies, cruise lines, vacation clubs, excursion providers, vacation rental businesses, and many other types of businesses in the travel industry.

Do you provide merchant accounts for non-US based businesses?

Sorry, we are unable to provide merchant services for foreign or offshore businesses, or any company that is headquartered outside of the USA. To be approved for a merchant account with Travel Payments, the business owner must have a valid SSN and US issued identification (driver’s license, US passport, etc).

How do I apply for a merchant account?

To apply, first you need to complete the online application (which takes about five minutes), and upload any additional required documents. Next, you can review our full proposal (which includes pricing), and DocuSign it when you’re ready. When your assigned underwriter approves your account, you can start processing payments right away.

How long does it take until I get approved for my merchant account?

After you apply, your merchant account will be pre-approved within 24 hours. Next, you will usually be fully approved (that is, through underwriting) within three to five business days. Unfortunately, same-day approvals do not exist for high risk businesses, due to the requirement that there be manual underwriting. Rest assured, however, that we will work as diligently as possible to get your account approved in a timely manner (typically three to five business days). Our priority is to get your merchant account up and running as fast as possible.
