WEX To Provide Virtual Payments Solution For Wotif Group

WEX Inc. (NYSE: WEX), a leading provider of corporate payment solutions, today announced the WEX Virtual card solution is being adopted by Wotif Group, a leading travel website headquartered in Australia, as an alternative payment method for Wotif Group’s accommodation partners. This customer win builds on WEX's entrance into Australia, and expands upon its virtual card success in the United States, United Kingdom and Brazil.

Greg Drumm, managing director, Asia Pacific of Wright Express Australia, said, “WEX Virtual’s innovative card technology enhances security by allowing precise control over payment authorizations. A virtual card is used just once per transaction and users can set precise authorization controls, including value limits. This helps prevent the occurrence of inaccurate or unapproved payments. In addition, the solution interfaces with suppliers' existing booking systems and workflow processes."

Donna Rodios, product director of Wotif Group, said, “Our accommodation suppliers have been requesting the virtual card solution, and we're excited to be able to offer them a streamlined way of receiving payment and reconciling their accounts much faster for Wotif Group bookings. This additional service will bolster our relationship with current partners and encourage new suppliers to join the Group, particularly from overseas where virtual credit cards are a preferred payment method."

The Wotif Group will introduce the new WEX Virtual card solution by August this year.
