“We use Tipalti to pay vendors, such as car rental companies, and to pay travel agencies their commissions. We do payouts to multiple countries around the world. Tipalti is used by my administrative finance department as a cost-effective centralized platform to payout to multiple partners, otherwise, I would have to do costly bank transfers.”

Keep your commission payments compliant
Don’t wait until year-end to hunt down your agents, affiliates, and experience providers for their tax forms. Digitally collect and validate W-9 and W-8 series tax forms, or VAT and local tax IDs during onboarding, and produce submission-ready 1099 and 1042-S reports to eFile during tax season. Self-billing capabilities also allow you to automatically generate invoices as required by governments for tax processes and to execute payments upon approval.
Integrate with Performance Marketing Systems
Connect various network tracking platforms (e.g. Klear, Affise, etc.) to add frictionless performance-based payments to your agents, affiliates, and experience providers while integrating detailed, accurate transaction and reconciliation reports with your ERP. Integrate Tipalti’s global payment infrastructure into your existing systems using our API, documentation, and developer hub.
Protect against commission payment losses
AI-based fraud detection proactively flags payment risks in your travel network for review to help you avoid potential losses. All agent, affiliate, and experience provider records are scanned against a range of “Do Not Pay” lists during onboarding and again before each payment, to ensure the legitimacy and legality of every transaction.
