Managing Global Payment Templates

American Express® FX International Payments allows you to create templates for those beneficiaries to whom you make regular payments. After a template is created, all you need to enter when making a foreign exchange payment is the value date.

TIP : A template payment must be for the same amount and to the same payee each time.

Creating a Template

 

To create a template, go to Create & Manage Payments > Manage Templates and choose Create Template from the top tab, then:

 

  • 1Enter your chosen Template Name.

  • 2Choose Outgoing Wire or Outgoing Draft from the Product drop-down menu.

  • 3Select the currency you want to send to your beneficiary from the Currency drop-down menu.

  • 4Choose the Settlement Method from the drop-down menu, and select the appropriate account number.

  • 5Enter the Payment Amount and Payee Currency.
