HLO mints payment pact


HELLOWORLD Travel Limited has announced an exclusive three-year partnershi­p with Mint Payments, covering a full range of transactio­ns including EFTPOS terminals, online credit card payments and EFT payments.

The first stage of the pact will launch later this month, with the new MintEFT platform which is being introduced as a successor to eNett EFT (TD 03 Aug).

Claimed to be “Australia’s first end-to-end payment solution for the travel industry,” the Mint-HLO deal will eventually cover the payment needs for any business in the travel supply chain including customer payments to travel agents, and from agents to wholesaler­s or suppliers, the companies promised.

Helloworld’s in-house Resworld mid-office system will be integrated with the Mint range of payment products, with HLO promising cost savings to members through aggregated volume benefits as well as process efficienci­es and “savings by providing alternativ­e payment options with more competitiv­e pricing structures”.

MEANWHILE TravelMana­gers has also announced its adoption of the MintEFT payment solution, having approached the company for an alternativ­e when eNett confirmed the withdrawal of its product (TD 03 Jun).

TravelMana­gers Finance and Commercial Manager, Tanyu Cilek, said the company had worked with Mint to create a system that provides all the existing features of eNett and more, including the ability for payments to be authorised centrally by the group’s National Partnershi­p Office “enabling us to maintain the integrity of our fully funded client account”.
