Access Mobile Wallets with American Express®

You can link your American Express Card to these Mobile Wallets. Learn more about each option below:

What is a Mobile Wallet?

A Mobile Wallet is an app on your smartphone that allows you to load your American Express Card to your device – by scanning your physical Card and following the prompts. Once loaded, it’s in your Mobile Wallet. So if you leave home without your wallet, you can still pay using your phone at Mobile Wallet enabled merchants.

Quick and simple

Contactless Mobile Wallets are fast and easy to use. Once you load your Card in your Mobile Wallet, just tap your device to pay and be on your way! Your details are never saved to your device, and most devices also require you to authorise each payment by fingerprint recognition or a passcode, increasing the security of the transaction.

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 accepted1. Enjoy the freedom to use Amex Pay on an eligible Android device2 to tap and pay for items in store, just as you would your plastic American Express Card.3


Your Card is contactless enabled for quick and easy payments4. Simply touch your Card on the reader, wait for the beep and you’re done.
