Case study: SCP in tourism
A consumer books a hotel with a travel agency. The travel agency creates a virtual credit card for the booking, as yet without transaction limit, and uses it for the hotel reservation.
As soon as the hotel reservation is confirmed with a booking code, the travel agent adds the code, traveller's name and any other potential booking details to the card data. The card is then topped up with the total payment amount and a payment date added. The hotel processes the card like any other credit card, debiting the correct amount on the right date, and receives the money via its credit card acceptance contract. Once the card has been debited, booking and payment are automatically reconciled by the operator via interfaces on the relevant finance and accounting systems.
Flexible card creation
Operators can create and top up virtual credit cards, either automatically via the XML interface or manually via a graphical user interface (GUI). Payee and payment date can be freely selected, which is particularly important for reservations and fixed-date payments.
The Wirecard Enterprise Portal (WEP) offers SCP customers comprehensive administration, display and evaluation functions, such as standard reports on card activity. The intuitive user interface and online access anywhere mean it is easy and convenient to use.
