DIGITAL payment provider Wirecard has become the latest partner of the AFTA Chargeback Scheme (ACS).
Operating as a merchant service provider, Wirecard will collect the ACS contributions on behalf of participating AFTA members under an agreement announced by the federation yesterday.
“We are very happy to offer our agents the ability to choose the international technology group Wirecard where our members can access the products and services offered by Wirecard as well as being protected by ACS,” said AFTA ceo Jayson Westbury.
“Wirecard has extensive travel pedigree and our members will be able to offer new and innovative avenues on how to accept payment from their clients,” he said.
Wirecard gm for Australia Daniel Vukova said the company was proud to offer a beneficial solution to AFTA members.
“Given our significant experience and footprint in the global travel market, partnering with AFTA marks a natural extension for us in the Australian travel industry,” he said.
The addition of Wirecard follows the signing of other partners to the ACS including Mint, First Data and SecurePay.
