Payment Myth Buster #4

Myth: ARC Pay is expensive.

Reality: ARC Pay saves time and money while reducing errors.

How ARC Pay does it:

  • If you work in a GDS, ARC Pay automatically pulls in reservation data – removing the need to re-enter passenger or credit card information. ARC estimates this could save, at a minimum, a minute for every credit card processed.

  • You don’t have another payment platform to use and reconcile. Only ARC Pay consolidates credit card payments with air ticketing in your ARC settlement environment.

  • No additional financial guarantees or collateral are required.

  • Voiding transactions don’t carry costs.

  • ARC Pay’s competitive, all-in rates have held steady for 26 years.
