In this option you allow Travelfusion to be the merchant for either the full transaction or just the booking fee portion with the following considerations:

  1. Branch Configuration: managed by our Operations Team.

  2. Merchant Currencies: supported currencies are: EUR, GBP, USD, AUD, SGD, HKD, JPY, PLN, INR. No Currency Exchange Rates, valid at the time of the transaction, are applied for quoting and charging you.
  3. Form of Payment (FOP): You need to submit either your own or your customer’s FOP to Travelfusion.

  4. Fares, Currencies & Mark Ups. It is possible with TF.Merchant to configure your account to return detailed information on fares including a variety of fees, such as transaction fees; as well as add mark-ups at the search stages of the booking process; and manage agents’ preferred currencies.

  5. Bookings: Please note that this payment method is managed on a per-supplier basis instead on a per-booking basis. It means that all transactions on a particular supplier will be handled as TF.Merchant.

API Configuration

Flights, Rail and Hotels

This configuration is applicable only when you authorize Travelfusion to be the Merchant for either the full transaction or just the booking fee portion of a booking. Once we activate the Merchant method at our end the following changes in the booking flow are generated:

  • Additional taxes will be displayed, such as the 'Merchant Fee', under the Leg/Group price ‘TaxItemList’;

  • You will receive the following SupplierInfo item at ProcessTerms:



<DisplayName>Merchant Booking</DisplayName>


<Info>The booking is being processed through the merchant system</Info>



Please ensure that your system can parse this. Failing such means that the booking is not being processed through the Merchant System. We request that your application dynamically handles situations in which our operation team advises you of any de-activation of the merchant system.

Going Live - Checklist

Before we grant you permission to use TF.Pay for live bookings, we would like to verify that you successfully integrated it into your system. It is also critical to reply to all the questions from the Going Live checklist.
