If you have booked a commissionable product or service on ARC MarketPlace, you may have commissions just waiting for you to claim!
For ARC ticketing agencies or VTCs, commissions are paid by credit memo in ARC's Memo Manager unless your agency owner or manager has requested direct deposit into the agency's IAR bank account. Remember, commissions are paid monthly in the month following travel or usage of an ARC MarketPlace product. And don't forget that you have 90 days to claim commissions in Memo Manager, after which time the memos will be closed and the commissions forfeited. Log into Memo Manager and claim your ARC MarketPlace credit memos today!
If you prefer to receive ARC MarketPlace commissions via direct deposit into your IAR bank account, please complete the short online form. Any unclaimed ARC MarketPlace commission payment credit memos in Memo Manager will be included with your first direct deposit.
