Why should you accept our Cardmembers?

Like many of the Merchants who welcome our Cards today, American Express started small, but with big ideas. It’s led to us becoming one of the world’s largest Card issuers, with a merchant network of millions, in more than 200 countries.

Why should you join these Merchants? Quite simply, you’ll be able to attract our Cardmembers. Just look at the numbers: 87.9 million American Express Cardsglobally, and when they spend, they spend more. On average, 43% more1 than other cardholders do.

We’re proud of our roots, and the business acumen that’s helped us grow. Our unique 'closed loop' means we collect transactional data and industry insights that can help your business grow. Join us, and you’ll have access to many of those insights. We’ll also share our marketing expertise, and provide opportunities to market your business to our Cardmembers and a wide range of customers.

We hope you decide to accept our Cards, and give us the opportunity to welcome you as an American Express Merchant, soon.
