As digital transactions have soared in recent months, leading global corporate housing agent SilverDoor has integrated with virtual payment platform Conferma Pay.

The announcement reflects the increasing popularity of virtual card for businesses to pay for goods and services, with cashless, plastic-free payment solutions offering clear benefits for both travellers and their organisations.                                                                           

SilverDoor’s clients can now charge all their accommodation bookings to it using the online booking tool Orbi, in any area that accepts Conferma Pay.

Martin Klima, Group Head of Client Relationships at SilverDoor said of the partnership “We are always looking for ways we can make booking with SilverDoor quicker, more convenient and secure for our clients.  The integration with Conferma Pay is just another example of how we are doing this.

“Virtual card transactions are more efficient for businesses to process, more transparent, less open to misuse and - in the wake of Covid-19 - clearly safer. We expect demand for virtual cards to increase significantly and this integration means we can respond to this”

David Wood, Director of Hotel Products at Conferma Pay added that the benefits of virtual payment for businesses were clear: “We are seeing more and more businesses seek virtual payment solutions from a single, preferred partner to help streamline their expense management system.  Integration with a virtual card, and the removal of billback or credit accounts, not only makes payment management more efficient and secure, it also helps leverage the corporate credit in as many instances as possible”
