AMERICAN EXPRESS® PAYMENT THROUGH OPT BLUE™
If you’re like many small business owners, you might avoid accepting American Express® because of the higher fees they charge merchants. Although American Express® was once an elite card for the wealthy, the bank now offers several cards that meet the needs of a diverse range of borrowers. As more people use American Express®, failing to accept it may turn potential customers away — and negatively affect the bottom line of your business.
At NMS US, we’re passionate about the success of your business. We want to see you succeed, because when you make money, so do we. That’s why we partner with American Express® to offer you OptBlue™, the newest service that specializes in making credit card transaction fees more affordable for small business owners.
What to Know About American Express® OptBlue™
American Express® launched the OptBlue™ program in May 2014. In the past, American Express® financed and processed each transaction — unlike Mastercard and Visa, which only process payments. With OptBlue™, American Express® card acceptance just got a lot less expensive, because participating acquirers take over the processing. That means you can expand your customer base to include those who only use American Express®, regardless of the card they own.
