Mint CEO, Alex Teoh added “We’re pleased to partner with Global Travel Network to support their agents with travel-focused payments products that suit the unique needs of their businesses. By providing both customer card payments and B2B solutions, we are able to assist in streamlining the processes of managing payments and admin.
