How to handle them.

When you sign up for an American Express Merchant Account, you'll be able to process transactions in one of two ways: by Card or American Express Travellers Cheques.

Accepting our Cards.


  • The best way to handle our Cards is electronically. You get fast and efficient authorisation and electronic submissions to speed up our payments to you.
  • Most electronic card acceptance products can process American Express, so contact your terminal or solution provider to check whether our Card can be accepted at your business.
  • The same thing goes for 'Card not present' transactions. If you accept phone, mail or online orders, American Express Cards can also be accepted.

Accepting American Express Travellers Cheques.

It's easy to accept our Travellers Cheques and it's good for business as many tourists insist on using them.
You won't need to sign a contract, nor pay any charges to American Express (just your normal cheque deposit charge to your bank). Our Travellers Cheques clear in the same amount of time as normal cheques. Provided you follow some straightforward security procedures, you'll get paid for any American Express Travellers Cheque you accept.
