Paysafe has entered into a new partnership with cloud-based hospitality solutions provider HotelKey to integrate seamless payments to US hotels. 

The payments platform will provide its technology to the hospitality industry for its front-desk, retail, and food and beverage operations. 

Paysafe will work in connection with HotelKey who offers its software solutions across “thousands of hotels” in the US, designed to help individual properties and property chains to manage their end-to-end guest operations. 

The core mission for both partners is to simplify the hotel property management by establishing a centralised hub for payment processing to securely process in-person, card-present and card-not-present transactions. 

“We’re passionate about partnering with innovative technology companies to develop forward-thinking payment solutions,” said Afshin Yazdian, President of Merchant Solutions at Paysafe. 

“Our partnership with HotelKey is an exciting opportunity to reinvent the retail and payments experience for the hospitality industry. With HotelKey, we look forward to providing the dedicated support that will help US hotels continue to thrive.”

HotelKey customers will obtain an enhanced ability to offer frictionless online credit and debit card payments to guests for a plethora of payment terminals at any designated hotel area. 

The solutions HotelKey and Paysafe provide allow customers a secure transaction process, aimed to maximise business revenue whilst enabling users to meet US and international customers’ payment preferences. 

Alexander Schindelbeck, VP of Operations at HotelKey, commented: “We’re excited to partner with Paysafe to provide our hotel clients with an embedded payment solution that addresses growing consumer demand for convenience by creating a seamless payments experience that simplifies the day-to-day responsibilities of property staff.”

The partnership will also allow Paysafe to connect with HotelKey’s back-of-house app to streamline payments for recurring purchases that support operations needs.
