How it works
Get set up with Automatic Bill Payments:
1. System Check: As you already accept American Express, determine that your existing billing systems are capable of storing Card data and charging customers automatically with their Cards
2. Participation Review: Once you've determined that your systems can accommodate Card storage and automatic billing, review and submit the required Program Participation Agreement. When you've qualified,American Express will add your contact information to the Automatic Bill Pay website directory
3. Processing: Customers interested in setting up their bills to be paid automatically may request to Charge their bills to their American Express Card on a recurring basis. They should provide Account information and billing authorization to your business
4. Payment: Submit authorizations to American Express as you normally do. Payments will be automatically deposited to your Account, speeding up the collection process
5. Transaction Completion: American Express will complete the process by billing Cardmembers the required amount on their monthly American Express statements

*Account must be in good standing balance.
