[SWEDEN, 19 March 2024]

  • Billhop and Airplus team up for flexible corporate payments
  • Corporations can pay B2B suppliers with AirPlus credit cards via Billhop's online bill payment platform 
  • Airplus customers can now pay one-time, low-frequency suppliers without ERP onboarding

Corporate payment expert, AirPlus International has joined forces with innovative payment platform, Billhop. This partnership will give enterprises the flexibility to pay any supplier with their AirPlus credit card of choice – virtual or plastic* – including suppliers that don’t accept credit cards. Moreover, AirPlus customers are now able to pay infrequently used or one-time suppliers without the time-consuming and costly process of onboarding them into their ERP systems.

How it works

AirPlus customers will simply enter their card information* and request a
payment via Billhop’s payment platform. After carrying out necessary compliance
checks, Billhop then charges the card, acting as a merchant of record, and
initiates the payment via bank transfer to the supplier. Subsequently, the
payment information is imported into the clients’ ERP systems. Customers pay
the card bill as normal, benefiting from their flexible credit card payment terms.

Stefan Waelde, Head of B2B Payments at AirPlus, said, “There are still numerous
B2B suppliers who do not accept credit cards. Together with Billhop, we are
happy to bridge that gap for our customers. Thanks to our partnership, they can
use their preferred AirPlus credit card to pay for all their corporate purchases in a
safe, clear, fast and simple way. Moreover, this partnership will help AirPlus to
expand our global leadership position within travel payments further to the B2B

“Our exciting partnership with AirPlus will give businesses the flexibility and
convenience to pay their suppliers by cards,” said Tashi Gauffin, CCO at Billhop.
“By circumventing the need for supplier intervention and onboarding, companies
can now consolidate all spend on their card programme and manage it with ease.”
