Travelpack chooses PXP ahead of global expansion

Payment service provider PXP Financial has announced a new partnership with UK-based independent package holiday firm Travelpack Marketing and Leisure.

PXP Financial will now assume the role of Travelpack’s acquiring bank, utilising its gateway service to provide the travel company with a “fully unified payments platform.”

Sumit Arora, CCO, PXP Financial, commented: “Travelpack is one of the biggest independent travel companies in the UK, and is on the verge of a significant period of growth. 

“It’s important therefore that it stay ahead of the curve, and by offering a comprehensive package of payment options that includes alternative payments, Travelpack can do just that.”

Travelpack will operate across all channels for its payment needs, including point of sale (POS), E-commerce, and MOTO, as well as all major credit card schemes.

The independent travel company is set to begin a “global expansion” and was said to be searching for a single, stable payments platform.

PXP Financial was chosen due to its “expert management of chargebacks” on top of its already existing acquiring solutions and the firm’s ability to accept alternative payment methods (APMs).

Ashok Patel, managing director, Travelpack, added: “We at Travelpack have prided ourselves on providing our customers a comprehensive, end-to-end package when it comes to their holidays, and we needed the same for our payments solution.

“PXP Financial took a consultative, flexible approach to working with us, and we are excited to  work with the team as we grow our brand and roll out this level of payments processing across our business.”
