US businesses are now able to ‘buy now, pay later’ when booking flights
Alternative Airlines has teamed up with Resolve, to offer US businesses hassle-free, 0% interest payment terms on all flight bookings.
Alternative Airlines, a global flight-search and booking website, has partnered with Resolve, to offer US businesses the option to purchase flights now and pay back with 0% interest within 30 days when booking flights through the Alternativeairlines.com platform.
A spinout from finance provider Affirm, Resolve is at the forefront of eCommerce solutions, providing business-to-business (B2B) sellers with innovative finance options so that their buyers can ‘buy now and pay later’.
Resolve will provide businesses booking flights through Alternative Airlines with a dedicated 30 term line of credit — an easy-to-manage and safe alternative to installment loans or credit cards. Buyers pay 0% interest if accounts are repaid within 30 days.
“Our partnership with Resolve will empower businesses, by giving them the credit they need to expand and manage their travel budgets,'' commented Sam Argyle, Managing Director at Alternative Airlines, “this is an exciting prospect for businesses, making it easier than ever for their employees to travel, connect and collaborate.”
Businesses based in the United States can easily apply by completing a simple application available through the Alternative Airlines business portal, with dedicated approval in as little as one business day. Resolve can then be selected as a payment option when booking flights, to pay 30 days later.
“Traditional B2B financing is slow and limits a business' potential for growth,'' commented Chris Tsai, CEO of Resolve, “Resolve is revolutionising B2B eCommerce. Our ability to power fast payment approvals and offer finance terms significantly increases B2B conversion, boosting the size and frequency of sales.”
Sam Argyle added: “In a competitive industry it is integral to our continued growth as an Online Travel Agent (OTA) to stand out. To achieve this, our partnership with Resolve will be crucial. Through a popular ‘pay later’ capability, we hope to enhance satisfaction, loyalty, and encourage buyers to return to our platform time and time again”.
Businesses can already benefit from the wide range of choice available through Alternative Airlines, which tickets over 600 airlines, from the largest global carriers to some of smaller regional airlines around the world.
Partnering with Resolve is the latest step as Alternative Airlines continues to take great strides to meet the needs of all looking to easily search and book flights. Customers can currently choose to pay for flights with over 160 localised currencies, as well as 25 payment methods, including payment plans from all the leading global providers — such as PayPal Credit, Affirm, and Klarna.
