Issuing ARC Pay credit card payments via any GDS automatically pulls in ticket reservation data. You never have to re-enter passenger information or credit card numbers.
You process ARC Pay transactions as if you’re booking an airline ticket — using the ARC airline code “890”. This function is native within each of the main GDS providers — Amadeus, Sabre, Travelport (Apollo and Worldspan).ARC Pay Agreement
ARC Pay Hub is an easy-to-use, web-based credit card processing tool for all travel-related credit card transactions. Used by agencies of all sizes and types, it’s ideal for smaller agencies or Verified Travel Consultants (VTCs) that need a simple payment workflow where GDS access or API integration is not available.
ARC Pay Hub functions as a browser-based “virtual terminal” accessed via My ARC. It allows agencies to process transactions and view reports in a single place. Users can process transactions up to $10,000 that are settled via the normal ARC process and available through IAR on a daily basis.Get Started Guide
ARC Pay API provides agents, aggregators and airlines with a seamless way to embed ARC’s payment processing directly into their booking experience, including mobile, web or custom software. Your customers will appreciate a one-click payment experience that supports Apple Pay, Android Pay and other travel-focused features and payment methods.
The API will include added security features such as tokenization and full EMV 3DS (3DS 2.0) support. In addition to a direct API, there are two hosted checkout offerings, helping to reduce or remove PCI scope and providing integrators more flexibility.Developer Portal
