Through Your Payment Processor
(American Express OptBlue Program)
The OptBlue program is designed for small merchants, providing a simplified option to accept American Express Cards through a participating payment processor.
In the OptBlue program, the payment processor sets the total pricing (rate and fees) that the merchant will pay for accepting American Express Cards. Depending on the payment processor’s pricing plans, this may include the American Express OptBlue Wholesale Discount Rate, as well as other Network Assessment Fees that American Express charges the payment processor for participating in the OptBlue program.
If you are accepting, or would like to accept, American Express through an OptBlue-participating payment processor, contact them for more information regarding merchant pricing and eligibility criteria.
