Why travel portals and online booking software are going for merchant accounts and mcommerce way?
A merchant account is a specific bank account intended to hold funds, received from credit and debit card sales through online payment interfaces on B2C travel software and Travel POS. If you've ever used your card and actually wondered where the funds just disappeared to, they went into a merchant account. When a customer pays for bookingtravel products using credit or debit card, money from his account is immediately transferred to the travel agent's merchant account. From there, money will be transferred out to a normal business bank account through a standard protocol.
