A fast, flexible way to help your team pay for what they need.
American Express Go is a faster, more flexible way for your contractors, freelancers, recruits, and infrequent travelers to make payments on-the-go.
How it works.
Create a Virtual Card
Create a user profile and virtual Card in the American Express Go portal, with the option to send a physical Card.
Virtual Cards are sent to users via the Amex GoTM mobile app, and they can start using online right away. A physical Card can be used for in-person purchases once it arrives.
Keep Track of Transactions
Transactions from all users are consolidated in one bill.
Quick to set up, easy to use, ready to go.
Set-up virtual Cards in a few clicks and make changes in real time, so you and your team get purchasing power quickly. And it’s easy to reload Cards so your team doesn’t have to go through the hassle of waiting for new Cards.
Spending and time frame limits give you greater control over on-the-go spending.
Quickly and easily reconcile expenses with critical details like names and optional accounting codes attached to each transaction.
Limit the back-office hassles of processing reimbursements for out-of-pocket expenses.
Using the Amex Go app.
Once you have been invited to a company’s American Express Go program, download the app to get started. You can then access your virtual Card, which can be used for on-the-go business purchases wherever American Express® is accepted.
The app can also be used to:
• Get Card account details for phone or online purchases, like food delivery or taxis
• Request a physical Card for in-person purchases, like at restaurants
• Easily track transaction details and monitor the Card balance

Frequently Asked Questions
What is a virtual Card?

Yes. There is an option to send a physical Card for making purchases in person.
Is this a prepaid or debit Card?
