Payment orchestration provider, BR-DGE has integrated Visa Instalments, an innovative API-powered solution, into Kenwood Travel’s payment offering to customers. The arrangement leverages Visa Instalments via BR-DGE Connect. As a result, Kenwood Travel provides greater affordability, enhanced flexibility, and security at the payment checkout to holiday goers. This comes through a BR-DGE customisable hosted payment page.
BR-DGE works with Kenwood Travel to enhance the online travel agents’ end-to-end payment journey. This ensures customers receive a frictionless luxury experience at the checkout. As Kenwood Travel caters to growing consumer demand for instalment solutions, Visa Instalments provides a convenient way for Kenwood Travel to accept and receive payments online.
This solution gives eligible consumers more choice in how they pay online. Specifically, it offers holiday goers easy access to instalment payment options with clear repayment schedules shown at checkout. And so the cardholder knows what they need to pay and when. Visa Instalments also uses existing lines of credit. It integrates with consumers’ accounts, making it convenient to manage their money without having to open or track other accounts.
Merchants report rise in sales when instalments offered
Research has shown that 75% of consumers said instalments helped them manage unexpected expenses. At the same time, some 40% of merchants have seen an uplift in sales when instalments are offered.
Kenwood Travel is the first UK merchant to select Visa Instalments via BR-DGE. According to BR-DGE, more merchants are expected to onboard the technology soon across the travel and retail industries. Kenwood Travel is leveraging BR-DGE’s modular, payment orchestration platform. This takes advantage of a vast array of functionality, from Network Tokenisation through to detailed reporting and analytics, enabling the merchant to deliver a first-class, seamless online checkout experience.
