Like many of the Merchants who already welcome our Cards, American Express started small, but with big ideas. We have grown steadily and are a key issuer of Cards in the Canadian market and internationally with a Merchant network numbering in the millions operating in more than 140 countries.
As a business owner you have probably asked yourself “why accept?”
If your business does not currently accept, this is an opportunity to tap into a new and valuable customer base that you may not currently have access to. Our Cardmembers who number in the millions in Canada carry and use their American Express Cards for consumer, corporate and small business needs. We also issue Gift Cards as a prepaid solution. Have you considered the benefits of American Express acceptance lately?
We are committed to building long lasting relationships based on premium economics, pricing transparency, fair business practices, Merchant choice and the delivery of incremental value. Our network is unique and our direct relationships with Merchants and Cardmembers allow us to provide Merchants with unique insights and perspectives on emerging marketplace trends and consumer spend behaviours. Taking advantage of this information allows our existing Merchants to better determine how to acquire new customers, develop brand and business loyalty, and drive repeat sales.
So why should you join American Express?
We understand our Cardmembers and their purchasing behaviour. We can give you the opportunity to take advantage of an untapped base of Cardmember spending; once you join the American Express network you may benefit from insights or from the many opportunities we can offer to market your business to our Cardmembers.
We would like to welcome you to the benefits of Card Acceptance. We look forward to working with you.
