Alternative Airlines taps Paysafe to expand payment options

Flight-search website Alternative Airlines has teamed up with Paysafe to increase payment options for its clients.

The tie-up will allow the flight-search website to offer Paysafe digital wallets Skrill and NETELLER as well as Paysafe’s instant bank transfer payment service Rapid Transfer.

Paysafe CEO of Skrill, NETELLER and Income Access Lorenzo Pellegrino said: “Customers increasingly expect to have access to different ways to pay and the ability to use their chosen payment method can easily be the determining factor in choosing where to shop online.”

Alternative Airlines also intends to offer eCash solutions- Paysafecash and paysafecard.

At present, the flight-search website provides more than 25 payment options that include Airtel, M-Pesa, Sofort, and Tigo Pesa.

Alternative Airlines managing director Sam Argyle said: “Partnering with Paysafe is another example of Alternative Airlines continuing to expand on its range of available payment options—which also currently includes credit and debit card payments and other digital payment methods—with the aim of driving both conversion and retention, to bring customers back time-and-time again.”

In June, Paysafe partnered with Skrill USA to make its Rapid Transfer service available in the US.

Earlier this year, Paysafe joined forces with Visa to issue Visa prepaid cards to businesses and consumers in Europe.
