Vacation Rental industry veteran, Ascent Processing Inc., brings guest vacation loan product to the short-term rental industry and integrates with Bluetent, a premier digital agency for Vacation Rentals
BOULDER, Colorado – June 27, 2019 Ascent Processing Inc., the 22-year leader in vacation rental/lodging payment processing in North America, today announced a new industry partner integration with Bluetent, a premier digital agency specializing in vacation rentals, to offer their consumer travel loan product called AscentPay powered by Uplift through their Rezfusion platform. Ascent, which prides itself on being the originator of vacation rental specific payment processing, has partnered with Uplift, the provider of short-term travel financing software, to develop AscentPay powered by Uplift, a cost-effective financing product specifically tailored for the short-term vacation rental market. Bluetent is offering this pay-monthly service to Rezfusion clients in order to make vacation rentals more accessible for everyone.
“We are thrilled to have partnered with Uplift to bring this modern payment option to the vacation rental industry” says Vice President, Business Development & Partner Programs, Dawn Yeskulsky. “Our expertise in the VR payments industry, coupled with Uplift’s technology, has allowed us to create a game-changing payment alternative that solves a multitude of issues for property managers and lodging providers. Instant financing is a widely accepted payment alternative in the retail and ecommerce markets, and we knew that this option would be just as widely embraced by short-term rental guests as it would be by the property managers looking to offer state-of-the-art booking solutions. After consulting with many of our trusted property management partners, we concluded that any new payment solution we brought to the market must include no PM liability for chargebacks and fraud in addition to tools to help significantly increase direct bookings and revenue. The fact that we pay property managers 100% of the total reservation immediately at the time of the booking was an added bonus.”
Peter Scott, President of Bluetent added “Bluetent has been a close partner of Ascent for many years. When the leadership team approached Bluetent to include the AscentPay option for our clients, we jumped at the opportunity. The ability to give guests an option to finance their trip was something many of our partners wanted to include with their services. So many professional managers are working to grow their brand and offer a unique way to do business. We see AscentPay as one of those bricks in the “Brand Building” and we are excited to see this roll out.” See more details on Bluetent’s Blog https://www.bluetent.com/blog/ascentpay/
Ascent Processing Inc. has added AscentPay powered by Uplift to its established merchant service offerings, but property managers do not need to use Ascent for processing, nor change processors to utilize this new service.
