What is a mobile wallet?

With mobile wallets, you can use your eligible mobile device to make purchases the same way you would with your contactless Card. Simply scan your eligible physical Card and follow the on-screen prompts on your mobile device. Once loaded, your Card will be saved in your mobile wallet, so if you leave home without your physical Card, you can still pay using your mobile device.

Quick, simple, and secure

Mobile wallets are fast and easy to use. Once you load your eligible American Express Card in your mobile wallet, just tap your eligible device to pay and be on your way! Most devices will require you to authorize each payment by fingerprint recognition or a passcode, and you can still enjoy the same protection from American Express with our Fraud Protection Guarantee.1 Feel secure when using your physical Card or your mobile wallet!

Amex Pay

With Amex Pay, you have a smart, secure, and simple way to shop using mobile contactless payments through the Amex App, wherever American Express contactless payments are accepted2. Enjoy the freedom to use Amex Pay on an eligible Android device3 to tap and pay for items in store, just as you would your American Express Card.4
