Make a Successful
Authorized by American Express, Global Payments has just made it easier for you to accept American Express Cards and attract preferred customers to your store. Reduce overhead by accepting American Express transactions through Global Payments; and participate in American Express Membership – a powerful network of consumers, small-businesses and corporate Card Members to help your business thrive.
What is it?
Global Payments and its participating independent sales organizations (ISOs) and payment service providers (PSPs) contract directly with eligible U.S. small merchants and determine the pricing for American Express card acceptance. Merchants can now accept and process American Express the same way they do other payment cards from major networks.
