How it works

Braintree Extend is a robust data sharing toolkit that enables merchants to grow their payments ecosystem by creating secure connections to partners.

Here’s an example of how Braintree Extend could be leveraged to power a travel experience across channels with seamless payments.


Booking a flight

Michelle is attending a music festival in California, and she’s just found a great deal on a flight through Skyscanner. Rather than being redirected to the airline’s site to complete her purchase, she books directly on Skyscanner.

Adding ticket insurance

Prior to purchasing her flight, Michelle decides to also purchase ticket insurance just in case something comes up. At checkout she’s able to buy both her ticket and insurance simultaneously with a single click.

Behind the scenes

Without impeding Michelle’s seamless checkout experience, the merchant leveraged a custom fraud prevention solution during the transaction for added fraud detection at checkout.

Getting to the airport

When Michelle hails a ride-sharing service to take her to the airport, she’s notified about a rewards offer linked to her credit card. Because this is her 10th ride, she gets it for free.

Enjoying the experience

Michelle enters the festival with an RFID-enabled wristband that’s linked to her card, and throughout the day she’s able to buy food, drinks, and souvenirs from vendors with the tap of her wrist -- no wallet required.
