August 20, 2015         By: Melanie Macinas

Payment solutions provider CellPoint Mobile has rolled out the Converged Payment Gateway, a new platform that helps airlines to easily manage and control the complex travel payments ecosystem.

Available as an installed or SaaS solution, the Converged Payment Gateway manages payment methods and Payment Service Providers (PSPs) in a matter of minutes, turning the payment ecosystem into an asset that supports greater margins and more sales.

Aside from allowing airlines to deploy new payment methods, currencies and channels in just a short period of time, the centralized payment platform allows them to gain more from their relationships with PSPs.

With CellPoint Mobile’s Converged Payment Gateway, airlines can also control payment data easily and process passenger payments and transactions seamlessly from a single access point.

Kristian Gjerding, CEO of CellPoint Mobile, commented, “Our new payment platform enables airlines to process transactions in a very cost-effective manner, through a central hub that sits within their existing payments infrastructure. Through a single console, airlines can now easily manage all of their converged payment data with one-click functionality, putting them firmly back in control of their payments infrastructure.”

The launch of the Converged Payment Gateway comes at a time when the industry is seeing exponential growth in the usage of payment channels. The growth of mobile payments and alternative payments, as well as the availability of multiple PSPs, definitely presents new revenue opportunities for the airline industry.
