Acapture signs payments deal with TravelBird

Global omnichannel payment service provider (PSP) Acapture announced this week it is processing payments for online travel provider TravelBird, a key milestone as it seeks to access an online travel market estimated to be worth $830 billion next year.

The scope of the solution symbolizes the potential solution range offered by fin-techs. Acapture’s supports global card acquisition, more than 150 currencies and more than 60 global alternative payment methods, including iDeal, PayPal, SEPA, Sofort, direct debit and online banking in Scandinavia.

That breadth also allows TravelBird’s international customer base to pay for holidays in their native currency and by several different methods.

The increased supply chain efficiency provided by Acapture’s solution attracted TravelBird, its CEO Symen Jansma said.

“To bring this service to the people, we needed a payment solution that truly optimized our operational processes as the steppingstone to further growth. After shopping around, we found that Acapture was the one PSP who combined the flexibility and speed we needed.”
