Preparing your business to accept American Express Cards couldn't be simpler

Working with you to understand your business requirements so you can start accepting American Express Cards across multiple channels including Website, Mobile App, Interactive voice response (IVR), Mail Order/Telephone Order (MOTO), and Kiosk.

Ease of integration

After the Merchant Agreement form has been signed, we will inform your payment gateway provider or acquiring bank to configure American Express.

Point of Sale Terminal

Welcoming American Express Card on your point of sale terminal is easy; once the merchant agreement form is signed. We will inform your point of sale terminal provider to configure your existing terminal; so you should be ready to accept our Cards.

If your point of sale terminal has changed or if you have changed your banking relationship, please notify your American Express Merchant Relationship Manager to re-configure your terminal.
