Properties and guests can now use Amazon Pay and PayPal as alternative payment methods through IBC’s integrated payment processing

Phoenix – September 26, 2018 – Today IBC Hospitality Technologies announces two exciting accomplishments. First, the company has been selected by MasterKey Alliance as the technology to power its Association’s online B2B online marketplace. As the industry’s only all-accommodation association, MasterKey will use IBC Hospitality Technologies to power its coalition of independently-owned and operated corporate housing, vacation rentals, serviced apartments and independent hotels. Next, integration between IBC’s proprietary software and mobile payment providers Amazon Pay and PayPal is now complete.

IBC, an OBASA Hospitality company, is one of the largest lodging B2B and B2C hospitality software and services providers globally. Its technology platform includes central-reservations system, booking engine, online revenue generation, patent-pending guest loyalty program, marketing services, a preferred partner network, and more.

“2018 will be a monumental year for IBC Hospitality Technologies,” said Pamela Barnhill, IBC founder and COO. “Having our technologies powering the MasterKey Alliance speaks volumes to the robustness and flexibility of our solutions designed specifically for independently-owned and operated lodging accommodations around the world. We couldn’t be happier to announce this technology partnership.

“We are equally thrilled to announce new opportunities for our member hotels,” Barnhill said. “Recent integration to Amazon Pay and PayPal is giving travelers more choices in mobile payment methods. Through these programs and many more, IBC is continuing to drive value to its members.”
