Get AMEX with Yourpay
American Express or AMEX is a payment card from the United States. The company, which dates back to the 1870s, introduced the first types of credit cards as early as 1958.
The AMEX card is today a widely used payment card, especially abroad. Therefore, if you have many foreign, perhaps even especially American customers, you may experience that they want to pay with their American Express card.
How to connect your agreement
Through a large number of payment providers, you can receive payments from customers with AMEX cards, including through us at Yourpay.
When you receive payments on the major card brands, we as a payment company will have what is called a Global Merchant Number for you as a company.
At Yourpay you can create VISA and MasterCard agreements where we manage the Global Merchant Number.
Yourpay does not create AMEX agreements, but we do handle payments on the card brand.
If you have created an AMEX agreement through another payment provider, and thereby obtained a business number (Merchant ID) for American Express, you can inform us of this and we will then request that the agreement be moved so that we can make payments on said agreement.
However, you should be aware that if you use Nets as a provider on your AMEX agreement, then it is not possible to connect this to your Yourpay payment solution.
The Merchant Number should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org
You will continue to receive payments from your AMEX provider, and Yourpay handles on American Express cards only the processing of data – and thus not the payments.
It can take up to 10 working days from the time we initiate the process until the setup is completed by Yourpay.
More tips to your card payments
When you receive card payments through Yourpay, we do not distinguish between the type of card used or whether it is Danish or foreign. Your card fee is always the same. However, this does not apply to AMEX, as the agreement is with another provider.
The more cards you receive, the more likely your customers are to choose to use you. Therefore, it is a good idea to sign up with all your payment options.
